The wine district of McLaren Vale is all set for a spectacular 2023 vintage! On Sunday April 23rd, 2023, the township will come alive with classic motor vehicles, vintage fashions, local wines and gourmet food.

The sixteenth McLaren Vale Vintage & Classic is set to attract 15-20 thousand spectators who will line the streets to view the parade of cars and motorcycles of yesteryear. All set against a breathtaking backdrop of wineries and vineyards.

Drivers and passengers will be encouraged to dress in vintage fashion consistent with the era of their motor vehicle. Judging of the participants will take place in the paddock at Serafino and be announced at approximately 10-30am. Wineries will be judged after the parade.


Whilst we not be judging the spectators this year we would still encourage people to dress up and add to the atmosphere of the day.

After the parade, selected McLaren Vale wineries will be showcasing classic vehicles and wines, along with music, food and family fun. So, polish up your vintage car, your vintage shoes, your camera and your wine glass and get along to McLaren Vale on Sunday April 23rd, 2023.  Photos of the winners and other finalists will be posted on the Facebook page and/or the website.

The parade starts at 11-00am but arrive early to secure a car park, a good viewing position and a great local coffee or two beforehand. All funds raised are used to support the McLaren Vale & Districts community War Memorial Hospital, Southern Koala Rescue and the local CFS.
