Classic cars cruise into Chilliwack

More than 300 classic cars will line the streets of downtown Chilliwack for the annual Village Classic Car Show this Sunday.

The annual Village Classic Car Show is this Sunday in downtown Chilliwack from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

More than 300 classic cars will line the streets of downtown Chilliwack for the annual Village Classic Car Show this Sunday.

“The Village Classic Car Show is always a highlight of the year for me,” says Kathy Funk, executive director Downtown Chilliwack Business Improvement Association (BIA). “With kids out of school for the summer, families are looking for great, free activities to entertain themselves with, and the car show is the perfect way to kick off the season.”

The BIA creates the outdoor show-and-shine into an event for the whole family by setting up a live entertainment stage on the steps of the Chilliwack Law Courts. A variety of food vendors will be on-site, and many downtown Chilliwack businesses will open for special Sunday shopping hours.

“Showcasing the evolution of automobiles, a number of local dealerships will display their best new vehicles in the show,” says Desmond Devnich, BIA event coordinator.

Adding some new features this year is part of the progression of any great event.

“We’re introducing a new section on Victoria Avenue dedicated exclusively to tuner cars and custom builds,” says event chairperson, Dave Van Dongen.

“Tuner cars, for those unfamiliar with the lingo, are vehicles that have been modified for improved performance or appearance,” Van Dongen explained.

The 11th annual HUB International Barton Insurance Village Classic Car Show returns to downtown Chilliwack on Sunday, June 23 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Vehicle registration is required and takes place at the Chilliwack Landing Sports Centre on Spadina Avenue from 7 to 9 a.m. that day.
