McLaren Vale Vintage & Classic
April 18 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
The McLaren Vale Vintage & Classic Event is a great family day celebration of vintage and classic motoring, with a grand motorcade, vintage fashion, local wines, gourmet food and music.
In its 16th year, the event will see more than 500 vintage and classic motor vehicles parade along the streets of McLaren Vale against a breathtaking backdrop of wineries and vineyards.
All vehicles will begin their journey at Serafino, before rolling out on the Main Street for the Grand Parade at 11am. The road will be closed for about an hour before the sea of vehicles will part ways and head towards participating wineries in the region where they will be on display amongst music, wine, and family fun.
Participants and spectators are also encouraged to dress in clothing from the era of their vehicle or simply their love of cars to be in the running for one of the prizes awarded for Best Dressed. Other awards included Best Vehicle and Motorcycle, Shop & Winery.
In addition to the Parade, the McLaren Vale Vintage & Classic will hold their annual Charity Lunch on Sunday the 25th of April at Serafino Winery for an exciting afternoon of fine food and wine, live and silent auction raffles, multiple giveaway’s and special guest speaker, champion V8 Supercars driver, Craig Lowndes.
Starting at 12pm, guests will enjoy a delicious three-course meal with a 2.5 hour drinks package included. Guests can either book tables of 8 at $1120 per table or individually at $140 per head.
All funds raised will again support the McLaren Vale & District War Memorial Hospital, the local CFS brigades of McLaren Vale and McLaren Flat and the Southern Koala Rescue.
Last year’s donations saw $6,000 go towards the hospital, $750 to each of the CFS units and $2,500 to the koala rescue groups.
