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.”
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! 🙂
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!
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. 🙂

There are literally dozens of outstanding car shows and show & shine events held each and every year in British Columbia. Many of these weekend long events draw hundreds of amazing classic automobiles. If you love cars or just like to view these beauties, you’re sure to come across a show in this region from April to September.

Heritage Park In Mission BC Annual Show & Shine
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.
A Few More Classic Car Photographs
This was just a sample of the many beautiful classic automobiles that did their drive by parade for us locals on Father’s Day Weekend in 2019. This weekend event seems to get bigger each and every year, and is something both towns look forward to hosting annually.
