Add to Calendar

The annual Oak Bay Collector Car Festival returns on July 23, 2023. Historically, this event attracts rare and unique cars, and is one of the most popular vehicles displays on the Island event calendar.

Collector car owners and enthusiasts of all makes and vintages are invited to bring their cars to Oak Bay Avenue to be enjoyed by visitors and locals alike. Cars are placed in sections along 5 blocks of Oak Bay Avenue, Monterey to Mitchell Street plus a portion of Hampshire Rd.

Many of the local restaurants and businesses will be open especially for the event. There will also be a BBQ put on by the Sidney Rotary Club, as well as a number of food trucks to choose from. There will be ribbons awarded in a variety of categories, and great entertainment as well.

This year, online pre-registration is strongly encouraged to guarantee your spot for $20 (plus fees). Drive-up registrations will be charged $25 (plus fees if paid by card), however, preferred parking spots cannot be guaranteed. Pre-registered cars will have priority. Questions can be directed to

As in the past, exhibitors will enter the Festival near Foul Bay Rd from the West end of Oak Bay Avenue. Groups of cars that would like to park together are asked to arrive as a group. Note that entrance will not open until 8:00am this year. Volunteers will escort cars to their location where they will be on display until 3:00pm.

This is a non-profit community event for everyone to enjoy seeing and talking to owners of a diverse collection of locally owned cars. If interested in volunteering, please contact us at
