Car enthusiasts unite!
The popular Northwest Deuce Days is returning to Victoria next week, attracting classic car owners and lovers from North America and beyond.
The event has taken place in the city every three years, since it began in 1998.
Now, car lovers across the city are anticipating its return, with three days of events to celebrate.
On Thursday, July 14th, hundreds of guests and their hot roads will load the black Ball Ferry from Port Angeles, Washington as they make their way to Victoria’s Inner Harbour.
On Friday, the community will be welcomed with an evening public social at the Hotel Grand Pacific.
On Saturday, hundreds of hot rods will gather on Dallas Road at Ross Bay before heading out on a cruise around town, allowing the public to come and take in the vintage cars.
You will also be able to see the cars later that day as they pass through Goldstream Avenue in Langford.
Finally, on Sunday, July 17th, Victoria’s Inner Harbour and Legislative Grounds will host the Northwest Deuce Days main show.
More than 1,000 pre-1952 vehicles will be showcased during the event, with an award ceremony at 3 p.m. on the Legislative steps.
Last year, Northwest Deuce Days was on the verge of not returning.
Back in March, founder Al Clark announced he was cancelling the event citing multiple reasons including the scope of work required to put on the show had grown too large and too expensive for him to host.
In July of last year, Destination Greater Victoria announced it had formally purchased the event from Clark and would take the lead of the event with Clark providing consultation.
