British Car Day 2023
British Car Day is fast approaching, and as always 3 Brothers Classic Rovers will be in the Vendor Village at our tent. We would love it if you'd come by and say hello.
Show details below!
British Car Day® is hosted annually by the Toronto Triumph Club, on the third Sunday of September. Since its inaugural event in 1984 it has grown in leaps and bounds and now draws more than 1,000 British cars and over 9,000 spectators, with room to grow even bigger. British Car Day® is open to vintage, classic and current British-manufactured vehicles, including motorcycles. The event is the largest, one-day, all-British car event in North America, with car owners and visitors travelling from Ontario, the northeast United States, the Maritime provinces, Quebec and Manitoba. Over the years, we have even had visitors from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Texas, the UK, and New Zealand.
The venue for British Car Day® is Bronte Creek Provincial Park in Oakville, about 25 miles west of downtown Toronto, conveniently located at the Burloak Drive exit off the Queen Elizabeth Way. The south entrance is for non-British cars & spectators, while the north entrance is reserved for British car exhibitors and vendors.
Every year one of the most popular destinations at British Car Day® is the Vendor Village area. Over 50 British-related vendors offer their new and used goods for sale, including car parts, complete cars, t-shirts, hats, tools, books, supplies and so on. Many vendors offer end-of-season specials, so there are lots of bargains to be had and great food is available from the many food vendors on site. If you are interested in becoming a vendor please contact us.
BCD comprises almost 60 classes of cars and motorcycles, running the whole range of British automobile marques from Austin to Westfield with model names from Anglia to Zephyr and everything in between. The organizers encourage everyone to bring along their British cars whether they be current model cars, daily drivers, partially restored cars or projects-in-progress, to line up with the many classic and concours-class cars in the appropriate marque and model class. British Car Day® is the opportunity everyone anticipates to chat, to scrutinize, and to plan for next year. It’s a car show but it is also a big, end of season, social event.
Notable British car anniversaries in 2023 include 100 years of Triumph Motor cars and 100 years of MG. so there will be special focus on these two popular British marques. Examples of these fine British makes will be located on the show car field. In addition it’s the 75th anniversary of Jaguar. Lots to celebrate this year!
