One of the largest and most entertaining British car events in the U.S.
It’s expected that more than 500 classic British cars will be on display and over 2,000 people will attend the 2017
edition of the Chicagoland British Car Festival. The festival features, authentic British food, entertainment, technical learning sessions, car merchandise giveaways, classic car parts vendors, and examples of the latest automobile imports from Great Britain. Following last year’s fun and spectator enthusiasm, valve cover racing – a quirky gravity-propelled competition – returns to the festival for 2017.
Admission for the general public is free, with donations encouraged for Shelter, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to providing community-based, emergency and longer-term housing for abused and neglected children. www.shelter-inc.org
. Last year, Shelter, Inc. raised more than $1,300 at the festival.
For those displaying cars, the early registration fee is $20.00 before August 22, 2017
, and $25.00 after the deadline and at the festival. On-site registration the day of the event is on a space-available basis. More information on the British Car Festival and registration can be found at www.britishcarunion.com
