Sooke Car Show set for third year

Around 300 vehicles to be featured

If you have an interest in cars, the Sooke Car Show will rev your engine.

The Sooke Fall Fair is putting on its third car show on Sunday (July 22), and is expected to be the biggest one yet, with over 300 cars featured.

“There is so much excitement behind this event,” said Ellen Lewers, president of the Sooke Fall Fair Society. “You would be amazed at how many car enthusiasts we have in the Sooke community.”

The car show starts at 10 a.m. at the Sooke River Flats, but a breakfast will be held at 9 a.m.

Around 14 local vendors will be on-site, including food trucks, a candy booth, a popcorn vendor, specialty coffee, and the Sooke Lions will be serving burgers and hot dogs.

Lewers added that there will be “exceptional gifts and prizes” this year for people to win, along with an auction, and winners of the car show will receive made-in-Sooke trophies. There are 13 categories for car owners to win in.

During the event, the Sooke Arts Council will also have a booth set up called Art in the Park, where people can learn how to do different kinds of art. Canvases, paint, and supplies will all be provided.

Local artists will also be selling their work and putting on demonstrations for people to watch.

Entry to the car show is by donation, and all proceeds go towards the Sooke Fall Fair.

“This event is made for Sooke, most of the cars in the show are from Sooke, the vendors are local, and it takes place down at the Flats,” said Lewers. “It’s such a great event for the entire family, and I hope everyone comes out to enjoy it.”

Those who wish to have their vehicle featured in the show can register online at Registration costs $20, and those who participate will receive a “swag bag.”
