PLEASE BE AWARE COVID RESTRICTIONS COULD APPLY TO THIS EVENT

2021 McLaren Vale Vintage & Classic Main Street Parade

The McLaren Vale Vintage & Classic is a GREAT FAMILY day celebration of vintage and classic motoring. A fantastic mix of food, wine, music and the arts together with the energy and passion of motoring enthusiasts.  The Event offers the visitor exquisite tastes of the McLaren Vale region’s world-class wines, tantalising gourmet food and classic motor vehicles of a by-gone era.

At 11-00am on Sunday 18th April the Main Street is closed off to mainstream traffic and the Parade begins. The road will be closed for about one hour for the public to line the streets to watch the cavalcade of vehicles pass by.

Extra special thanks must go to the committee of the McLaren Vale Vintage & Classic. COVID-19 restrictions meant their 2020 fundraising dinner had to be cancelled, yet through the dedicated support of their sponsors, they were still able to donate $6000 to the hospital. The funds have been used to purchase niki pumps, which are important in the care of palliative care patients.

THE CHARITY DINNER IS NOW SOLD OUT, BUT THERE IS A WAITING LIST. The Dinner will be on the Saturday night before the Main Parade Day on the weekend of the  18th April 2021. This year promises to something special with our Charity Lunch Sunday 25th April Guest Speaker being Craig Lowndes and the ceasing production of the GMH branding. We look forward to a fantastic night hearing a bit of the history of this famous icon. We will have live and silent auctions raffles and give aways. Bookings are essential and this will sell out very quickly.                                                              The unique mix of activities has kept thousands of people coming back year after year, set in the relaxed atmosphere of McLaren Vale's wineries and cellar doors offering a combination of vintage and classic cars, food, wine and motoring enthusiasts in an outdoor setting gel to make this weekend like no other. Our last event in 2019 was the biggest year so far with over 600 vehicles and 15-20,000 people lining the Main Road for the Grand Parade.

The 2021 event will again support the McLaren Vale & District War Memorial Hospital, the local CFS brigades of McLaren Vale and McLaren Flat and Southern Koala Rescue. In 2020 we donated $6k to the hospital, $750 to each of the CFS units and $2500 to the Southern Koala Rescue groups.

The 2020 event was cancelled due to the restrictions of the Covid 19 Virus but as you have read above it was still a success due to the generousity of the participants donatining their entry fee to the charities.

In 2020 we saw the introduction of motorcycles to the event. In 2021 we will have a static display of vintage, racing and classic motorcycles at Shingleback Wines and there will also be a variety of motorcycles and scooters at the McLaren Vale Visitor Information Centre.

THIS YEAR WE ARE AGAIN ENCOURAGING PARTICIPANTS TO DRESS IN THE ERA OF THEIR VEHICLES/ MOTORCYCLES and we are going to award prizes for best dressed and various other combinations. So get out your glad rags and have a go, you could be chosen and win a prize. See details on the Best Dressed page of the website.
