The annual Oak Bay Collector Car Festival is back, celebrating 21 years of showcasing the coolest and most sought after collector cars Vancouver Island has to offer. 

On Sunday, September 13th car enthusiasts can bring their cars down to Oak Bay to participate in the festival. 

Cars of all makes and vintages are welcome!

Car enthusiasts and their families can stop by to view the cars, which will be placed in sections along 5 blocks of Oak Bay Avenue, Monterey to Mitchell Street and a portion of Hampshire Road.

Starting at 7 a.m., exhibitors can enter the Festival near Foul Bay Road from the West end of Oak Bay Avenue where they will be met by volunteers to pay the registration fee. 

No pre-registration is required. 

Volunteers will then escort cars to their location to be on display until 3 p.m. 

The festival will award prizes for Policemen’s and Firefighter’s choice, Mayor’s and Ladies choice as well as 11 other categories. Colourful rosette ribbons will be awarded to the winners of each category. 

Many restaurants and businesses in the area will be open especially during the event so be sure to make a day of it!

The Oak Bay Collector Car Festival is a non-profit community event. Please keep in mind BC health protocols as well as respecting physical distancing measures while in attendance.
