2020 event cancelled due to Coronavirus Restrictions

2020 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.                                                                                                                                It 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 5th April the Main Street is closed of 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.

This event is now in the 15th year, the McLaren Vale Vintage & Classic has a Charity Dinner on the
Saturday night with a motoring Legend Fred Gibson and wife Christine (Cole) as special guest speakers.    Fred will entertain us with stories of his motoring career which spans many years. He has been involved with Motorsport and  Bathurst  driving and later as Team Manager and has recently been inducted into the Motoring Hall of Fame.                                                                                                                                                                                                                     This Charity Dinner raises much needed funds through auctions to purchase medical equipment for our local McLaren Vale Hospital.

The dinner will be on the Saturday night before the Main Parade Day on the weekend of the 4th and 5th April 2020 and is set in the relaxed atmosphere of McLaren Vale's wineries and cellar doors. The unique mix of activities has kept thousands of people coming back year after year. the combination of vintage and classic cars, food, wine and motoring enthusiasts in an outdoor setting gel to make this weekend like no other. Last year 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 2020 event will again support the McLaren Vale & District War Memorial Hospital and the local CFS brigades of McLaren Vale and McLaren Flat. In 2019 we donated $15k to the hospital and $300 to each of the CFS units.

2019 saw the introduction of motorcycles to the event. In 2020 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.
