The Sixth Annual British Motoring Festival is taking place July 11, 2015, and once again we will be able to enjoy the beautiful Kings - Edgehill School campus in Windsor, Nova Scotia. Kings - Edgehill is the oldest private school in Canada, dating back to 1788, and the 65 acres of lawn and shade trees is just 40 minutes from Halifax.

Last year the Saturday event saw 150 participating vehicles from New England, Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic Provinces, and was well attended once again by visitors who came to see the great cars, motorcycles, trucks, even tractors, as well as to enjoy some authentic British cuisine and entertainment.

This year we have additional fun for the family with a demonstration Cricket Match, discussions on certain manufacturers and restorations, valve cover racing as well as the English cuisine, art work, and gifts. Once again, folks can enjoy the town walk showing historic properties, the model airplane displays, a car corral, an afternoon English Tea, a comedy show by local talent, and a best dressed competition.

For participants, on Friday evening there will be a wine and cheese reception,
Saturday has the show with public viewing from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, and Saturday evening participants can join us for a banquet in air conditioned comfort, with an outdoor movie afterwards. Sunday morning participants will enjoy the Spitfire breakfast, then the driving tour with a stop at a local winery and we finish the weekend with a complimentary lunch nearby.

This year we are encouraging participants and the public to dress up in traditional English costume - the fashion of the early 1900s, or the period of your favourite car - and a prize will be awarded, so dig out your Wellies and Harris tweed, or bobby sox and blue jeans now.

Come for the cars. Stay for the fun.
