Upcoming Car Shows in Metro Vancouver & the Fraser Valley

Car Shows in Metro Vancouver

As a professional used car buyer in the car buying industry for over 30 years, we have a deep love of all vehicles, from every walk of life. Whether it’s in good condition, bad condition, in between condition, or even a top tier supercar or rare vintage model. We love buying vehicles and we also love to see what is up and coming, and what once was.

That’s why after every long Metro Vancouver winter, we eagerly await the Lower Mainland car shows which remind us that Vancouver is more than just rain, we are also sunny days with cold drinks and hot cars.

Aside from checking out classic and vintage model cars at the seaside in White Rock, there are many other great cars shows throughout Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley that take place throughout the summer and fall.

Metro Vancouver Cars Shows in 2024

Cash for Cars Vancouver

If you’re looking for something fun and affordable to do this summer, get out and see the various kinds of vehicles that will be showcased at many local car shows.

Several of them are for fundraising purposes, and others are simply to present car owners’ pride and joy. Whichever the case, it’s a great time to get out in the sun and peruse some of the vehicles we love buying the MOST in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.

2024 Metro Vancouver Car Show Locations

1. Brookswood Community Car Show – Langley

Brookswood Car Show

Langley is one of our favourite Metro Vancouver locations to buy vehicles in. The people here have a sincere love of cars, and it is shown with events like the Brookswood Community Car Show that is held every year.

Not only is this car show a great way to show community pride and appreciation of vehicles from every era, but it also is a community fundraiser to raise money for various school programs and the Brookswood Secondary School dry grad.

There’s no better way to show your love of cars and support your community than to attend the Brookswood Community Car Show. Tickets are just $25 at the gate (or $20 at pre-sale).

Aldergrove car show

If you’re a classic car fanatic, this is the car show for you. The Aldy Show N’ Shine is the place to see hot rods, custom and restored classic cars, vintage trucks, and everything in between.

For many years, a Show N’ Shine took place in Downtown New Westminster. However, since the pandemic, they have not returned to present their highly sought after classic car display.

Fortunately, for classic car lovers, the Aldergrove Fair Days will be hosting their own Show N’ Shine this year during the month of July. And like many, we plan to come out and not only support the community, but to feast our eyes on some amazing vintage vehicles and custom hot rods. The best part is that admission is free.

As a professional car buyer, we love buying classic and vintage vehicles in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.

NOBODY Pays More!

3. Edmonds City Fair & Car Show – Burnaby

Burnaby was once one of the hottest spots to see classic cars and trucks. Unfortunately, as modern life advanced and Burnaby grew, you seldom see many of the beautiful classic vehicles that once roamed the streets daily.

However, there is still a chance to see some beautiful, rare, and of course, classic cars at this year’s Edmonds City Car Show, which takes place alongside a fair.

5. Sun Festival Classic Car Show – Tsawwassen


Naturally, in a place like Tsawwassen that is virtually always sunny (compared to the rest of Metro Vancouver anyways), their classic car show is fittingly titled, “The Sun Festival Classic Car Show”.

This is the place to see anything and everything vintage, as nearly the entire car show is focused on classic cars and trucks. However, there will also be displays of electric vehicles, supercars, rare imports, and some new domestic vehicles.

Thinking About Selling Your Car?

If you plan to visit the Sun Festival to scope out your next potential vehicle, take your time on deciding what you might want to get into next. However, don’t think about trading in your vehicle to the dealership, because Cash For Cars BC offers the MOST cash for cars, trucks, SUVs, vans, and motorcycles.

We are an established professional used vehicle buyer serving Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, and parts of Vancouver Island. We can buy your vehicle in as little as 20 minutes, and we buy vehicles ranging from $100-$100,000+. From junk cars to supercars, we buy them all!

6. PoCo Car Show – Port Coquitlam

Port Coquitlam, or “PoCo” as many people call it, is known for its gorgeous scenery, extensive hiking trails, and of course, the PoCo Car Show.

Every August, Downtown Port Coquitlam shuts down some of its main roads to allow public foot traffic only to view the hundreds of vehicles that will be on display.

Not only that, but they also have a classic car parade that kicks off the entire event, and plenty of vendors, foot trucks, and fun activities for the kids. If you live in the Tri-City area (or even if you don’t), you should clear you schedule for a fun-filled day at the PoCo Car Show this August.

We Pay the MOST Cash for Hybrids & EV’s in Metro Vancouver

One of the types of vehicles that we as true Vancouverites are very passionate about buying these days, are clean energy vehicles.

We are the best way to sell your car in Vancouver for the MOST cash. Plus, we handle all the paperwork, we come to you, and NOBODY Pays More!
