Colorado English Motoring Conclave 2018
September 15 - September 16
Conceived by a group of British car and motorcycle clubs in the Denver area, the first Colorado English Motoring Conclave was held in the summer of 1983. Every September since then many hundreds of classic and collector cars and their owners have gathered at the Conclave to celebrate the operation, preservation, and owner participation of the great British automobile marques.
Now in its 35th year, the 2018 Conclave will be held over the weekend of the 15-16th of September. The weekend begins on Saturday the 15th with “Ride the Rockies” motoring tour which starts from Oak Park in Arvada, and is followed by the All British English Motoring Conclave Car Show, which will be also be held in the now familiar location of Oak Park, on Sunday the 16th.
Each September the Conclave car show sees well over 400 British cars and bikes gather in the fall sunshine of Oak Park for the highlight of the Colorado British motoring year. Representatives of just about every British Marque can be seen on display on the respective club stands, including Austin-Healey, Arial, Aston Martin, Bentley, BSA, Daimler, Jaguar, Jensen, Lotus, MG, Morris, Rolls Royce, Rover, Rudge, Sunbeam, Triumph, and TVR. The eagle eyed visitor will probably be able to see vehicles from every decade of the 20th century as well as plenty of future British classics produced since the the turn of this century.
All cars are voted on by a public ballot which is open to anyone attending the show. In most classes ribbons are presented to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in class. This is the largest celebration of the British Motoring Hobby in the Rocky Mountain region of the United States so why not come along, bring the kids and share with them the fun of these wonderful classic vehicles, enjoy food, fun, and entertainment in the park, visit local vendors and take advantage of some super deals. Wandering the field and marveling at all the great cars and bikes on display might even convince you to get your own British classic to bring along next year.
