Car lovers gearing up for the show in Gravenhurst

Car enthusiasts from all corners of the province and beyond are gearing up for the 25th annual Gravenhurst Car Show!
The largest show of its kind in northern Ontario, the car show typically draws about 500 cars and thousands of spectators to Gull Lake Park in Gravenhurst.
“We’re already getting a fantastic response,” says Tara Doyle, the Manager of Programs of the Gravenhurst Chamber of Commerce which runs the event.
This year’s show is set to take place on June 16th, the day before Father’s Day. In light of the shows 25th anniversary, the event is taking on a silver theme.  Bring your best chrome, silver cars etc. for this year’s event.  Admission for cars and visitors is by donation.

The show offers prizes for spectators and car owners throughout the day including the chance to win a brand new set of tires for pre-registered vehicles owners. Nationally renowned golf course The Muskoka Bay Club, Kubota North, The Muskoka Drive-In and Muskoka Car Wash all have prizes to hand out so don’t miss the boat!

Organizers are now hard at work looking for volunteers and sponsors to help ensure the event runs smoothly.
“It’s a great opportunity for community-minded businesses to get their name out there in front of thousands of people, and to help out with one of Gravenhurst’s biggest events of the year,” says Lockhart, noting that Canadian Tire in Gravenhurst has already stepped up to the plate as a title sponsor again. “It’s the volunteers and sponsors who come through year after year and help make this one of the biggest and best car shows in all of Ontario.”
Other longtime supporters Wayne’s Tire, Sawdust City Brewing Company and Cavalcade Ford have also come forward once again, along with Harvey’s Swiss Chalet Gravenhurst, Northland Performance, Hagerty Insurance, Home Building Centre Gravenhurst, Hap’s RV & Sales and many media partners.
