Welcome to the website for the annual Ottawa All British Car Day - The single British Only car and motorcycle show in the Ottawa area. This event is dedicated to showcasing and celebrating the complete spectrum of British vehicles. It has been held every year since 2005 at a beautiful riverside location at Britannia Beach Park - Lakeside Gardens.


This will be the 11th Annual Ottawa All British Car Day - Special Events for 2015 TBD

We always hope for good weather of course, but the show goes ahead, rain or shine. Our previous shows were always very popular, despite rain on a few occasions. Here is a nice video montage prepared by Rick Cooper after the 2014 show. We hope to see everyone again at the show in 2015.


Here is a downloadable PDF of our double sided tri-fold descriptive brochure.

Featuring only British vehicles

Situated on the historic Lakeside Gardens by Britannia Beach

One can expect to see a selection of cars and motorcycles with a broad cross section of makes, models and years, ranging from pre-war Singers and MG's to modern day Rolls-Royces, Jaguars, Land Rovers and Minis. This show is held every July at the beautiful Lakeside Gardens, itself an historic community landmark and social hub.


The show runs from 10 AM. to 4 PM. Admission is free to the general public, but there is a charge for participants which includes lunch for two, and entry in draws held throughout the day for door prizes from our sponsors. Participants receive a ballot to vote for their favourite vehicles, and the Participant's Choice awards are made near the end of the day. The first 200 vehicles registered at the show will also receive a gift bag.


All British Car Day Concept

British Car and Motorcycle Clubs in the Ottawa Region work together to create this annual event to showcase their vehicles. Our intention is to promote both a social occasion for British vehicle owners, as well as a community event for the enjoyment of the general public.

Previous Years

We had a very successful 2013 British Car Day, with near record attendance. The day was hot and dry. It sure made up for some of those previous wet years we've had. Here are some photos from last year's show. Thank you to everyone who sent in pictures for the site!

We wouldn't be able to put on this show without the support of the local car community or our sponsors. We ask you to continue to give them your business and your support.
