16th Annual German Car Festival @ Waterfront Park June 25th

16th Annual German Car Festival @ Waterfront Park June 25th

A fun day out with fellow German Car Enthusiasts.

Entry fee of $10 per car will be collected on site for those wishing to park/display their cars on the lawns.  Donations of a non-perishable food item will be collected for the Harvest Project charity; net proceeds of the entry fee are also donated.

Event sponsors will provide some prizes to be given away and some other fun stuff. There will also be a food vendor available for lunches, as well as an ice cream vendor.

The German Car Festival traces its routes back many years to when it was a Porsche Club show and shine outing to support a local charity.  In 2002 the event formally became the German Car Festival as Ron Dempsey worked to bring the BMW, Porsche and Mercedes clubs together to host the event.  The event has grown and become popular as a summer show and shine for the various authorized German car clubs. Those are the ‘brick and mortar’ clubs that are sanctioned by the manufacturer, and now include not only our BMW Car Club of BC, but the local Porsche Club of America – Canada West Region, the Mercedes-Benz Club of America – British Columbia Section, and the Audi Club of British Columbia.

As can be expected from such a diverse group, there will some very interesting cars participating in this event both new and old.
