THERE'S SO MUCH to see and do, so here’s a little run-down of what’s happening on the day and what you need to know.
Check our downloadable
site map for important info to make sure you don’t miss a thing!
Plan ahead with our handy downloadable parking map, which highlights the location of our mobility parking area, two public parking areas, classic cars area and regular public parking spots at Lloyd Elsmore Park.
Each year we aim to have something new, whether it be a collection of unique vehicles, a special milestone for a classic marque or a car or two with a story to tell. Keep an eye out for updates on this website and on our Facebook page as we bring together the 2020 show.
Keep an eye out for special displays from classic marques that are celebrating anniversaries. Two prestigious British marques, Bentley and Alvis are celebrating 100 years. The TR Register is celebrating its 50th anniversary, with the register being formed for all enthusiasts of the iconic series of cars built by Triumph.
Keep your eyes peeled for the NSU, AC and Allard cars or the recently restored Austin J2 ute that appeared on Seven Sharp. Of course, every display is interesting for some people! And if Jaguars are your thing, you will be in your element with what might be the largest display of Jaguars every in New Zealand with over 100 of these cars likely to be at the show and displayed in their own area.
If you’re local to the area, forget the hassle of parking and consider cycling to the Auckland Brit & Euro Classic Car Show – it’s the perfect option for families and individuals who love to bike. East Auckland has the bike-friendly Cascades Shared Path, linking many parts of Howick and Pakuranga to Lloyd Elsmore Park, the venue for the show. CLICK HERE FOR MAP DETAILS.
Make sure you head over to our neighbours at the Howick Historic Village who are organising a ‘Live Day’, and half price entry on the day of the show. The village celebrates its 40th anniversary this month and is the leading ‘historic village’ in New Zealand. If you can’t make it to the village, donations to the Village can be made at the Village Display tent or to the collectors that will be moving around the park during the day. All donations received this year will go to the restoration of the 19th century parsonage.
Lloyd Elsmore Park is the perfect place for a
BYO picnic or find a bite
to eat at one of these vendors:
Little Yellow Food Truck
Hey Presto Catering
Ice Cream Social
Espresso on the Go
PLUS, support the
Howick Menz Shed, Rotary, and Pakuranga United Rugby Club's
fundraising efforts – these groups will be running a sausage sizzle.
