British Motoring Festival 2018 – Nova Scotia
July 13 @ 8:00 am - July 15 @ 5:00 pm
Since 2010, the British Motoring Festival has been staged annually on the grounds of historic King’s Edgehill School in Windsor, NS. In 2018, the Festival will run from Friday to Sunday, July 13 to 15.
The Festival is a showpiece event of the British Automobile Touring Association of Nova Scotia (BATANS), a non-profit registered society. Currently, membership in BATANS numbers 271, collectively accounting for 457 vehicles.
The event is an occasion for British car enthusiasts to showcase their vehicles, both classic and modern. In 2017, 128 participants presented a total of 146 British cars and motorcycles. Most came from the Atlantic Provinces, with a few who made it from New England and Ontario. We also welcomed approximately 800 public spectators who came on Saturday’s open day to view the cars and to speak to their owners.
Weather and circumstances permitting, the public will have an opportunity on Friday, July 13 to preview a selection of Festival vehicles during an evening Street Party at the location of The Spitfire Arms in downtown Windsor. On Saturday, July 14, the proceedings at King’s Edgehill School will be open to the public.
Registered Festival participants will convene at KES Saturday evening for an Awards Banquet, and for breakfast Sunday morning at The Spitfire Arms.
As in past years, prizes will be awarded in 2018 for cars that are deemed to represent the best of several categories. Festival organizers are also planning special activities to entertain young and old alike. Vendors will be on hand to dispense food and beverages.
