Classic Car & Hot Rod Events In British Columbia – Canada

Table of Contents

Who doesn’t love a parade of Classic Cars & Hot Rods. For car enthusiasts, there are a number of Classic Car Shows On Vancouver Island in Beautiful British Columbia – Canada each and every year!

Most of these events kick off on Father’s Day in Canada in the month of June.

Seaside Cruizers – Father’s Day Show & Shine

One of the biggest events takes place right in our hometown each season. The Seaside Cruizers Car Club hosts a weekend of special events in the towns of Parksville & Qualicum Beach.

It’s a fun filled Father’s Day weekend event, where spectators can come and view their Show ‘n Shine and much more in downtown Qualicum Beach.


In fact the Sunday Show ‘n Shine events are so popular they were actually mentioned on the Oprah Winfrey Show television show. It was said to be one of the “10 Best Things To Do On Father’s Day.

Vintage Auto

We always look forward to their Friday Night – Cruise Night Drive By Parade. This is where the proud owners of these beautiful cars and trucks cruise down the streets of Parksville and neighboring Qualicum Beach. Locals like ourselves, pick a favorite spot on the parade route and watch them drive by.

Loads of Fun! 🙂

Rat Rod With Canada Flag

For you lovers of these special cars, this year I’ve taken a few photos for you to enjoy here on my travel blog. This parade of autos took at least 45 minutes for all them to drive by. I wish I had a counter to keep track of just how many there were.

Maybe next year!

Class VW Bug

Who doesn’t love a VW Bug (Punch Buggy) to get the show started! This fellow has done an excellent job of advertising his business with this classic Volkswagon Beetle. 🙂

For many years now, the town of Mission British Columbia has also held an annual car show and shine on Father’s Day. This event has gotten so big, in 2019 they had over 1,000 cars, trucks, motorcycles, and boats on display.

We used to live in the town for years and always looked forward to viewing these classics! If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, you’ll love Mission British Columbia.
