“We are looking forward to opening the gates at VanDusen, seeing the classics roll in, and welcoming everyone to our much-cherished event,” said Joan Stewart, co-chair of VABFM, in a release. “The popular Carriage Trade Teahouse will return to the Great Lawn, and plans call for a wider range of food concessions to whet the appetites of the event’s increased attendance.”
A number of marque anniversary celebrations will be held at VanDusen Gardens, including the centenary of MG sports cars and Aston Martin’s 110th anniversary.
Other highlights of the long-running car meet include the debut of a 1948 MG TC which was found in an Oakville, Ontario, field in 1972, and the debut of the Lotus Emira, the last combustion engine-powered car made by the esteemed auto manufacturer.
There will be stunning vehicles in 63 classes to discover as well as an ElectraClassic vehicle display spotlighting the trend of combining classic looks and modern driveability.
You may even see folks dressed in period attire from the 1940s to 1960s enjoying delicious British Tea while admiring the antique cars. VBAFM’s High Tea is already sold out, but tickets for the all-British classic car show are still on sale.
The event will also feature live entertainment by The Little Mountain Brass Band and food vendors on-site.
