Hot cars heat up Chilliwack’s downtown on Sunday

The Fortin’s Village Classic Car Show is one of the largest car shows in the Fraser Valley

Downtown Chilliwack is transformed into a car lover’s paradise one day every summer, for the Fortin’s Village Classic Car Show.

This year’s event is set for Sunday, June 25, with as many as 300 vehicles expected to pull into town. Stroll the streets of Wellington, Mill, Young, Victoria, and upper Yale and relive the memories of yesterday. All of the streets around Five Corners are closed for most of the day, as cars from every era are put on display. From classic Corvettes to groovy Volkswagens, there is something to please every car lover.

Of course, the streets also fill with thousands of car enthusiasts, strolling from car to car to take in every amazing detail.

It’s not just a car show, but a chance to meet with friends, entertain the little ones, and relive the glory days.

This year’s show runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and includes live music, demonstrations, sponsor tents, and a complete food fair serving up plenty of choices. Trevor McDonald will also be on site from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., hosting his popular Nothing But ‘70s radio show live for 89.5 The Drive.

The Fortin’s Village Classic Car Show is one of the largest car shows in the Fraser Valley, and brings out everything from classics and muscle cars to cruisers, hot rods and trucks.

Many car owners set up entire themed displays, showing off their past trophies, photos of restorations, and even memorabilia from the time their cars were flying off the production floor.

Owners are always will to answer questions or just to chat about their cars.

Vehicle registration begins at 7:30 a.m.
