Sep 7: English Car Affair in the Park

The South Island Branch of the Old English Car Club of B.C. presents the 25th Annual English Car Affair in the Park at Government House, official residence of the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia on SATURDAY, September 7th. (Note the day is SATURDAY.) Registration for showing your English vehicle in the show is $20 per vehicle with passenger (or passengers if a saloon) and that includes one dash plaque while supplies last. Additional dash plaques are available while supplies last at $7.50 each.
This year’s featured marque is LOTUS. All British cars are welcome whether restored, daily driver, refurbishing in progress or preserved! A bonus is the showing of the only Canadian entry in the 2019 Peking to Paris Rally! And this special vehicle will be one of the cars participating in our WIN-A-RIDE event. Open to all participants and their family members. We will draw entries for the winners who will take a ride with the owner.
Bring a picnic lunch or enjoy the on-site food trucks. Visit the Government House Gardens and Costume Museum.
