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.


We have chosen the Mini as our featured marque this year. We welcome both classic and new Minis and hope to see many beautiful examples of both out at the show this year.


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 2017 show. We hope to see everyone again at our next show in July 2019.



Note that in accordance with City of Ottawa policies, there is no smoking allowed in the park and dogs are not allowed. We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but this is standard Ottawa policy in most public parks.


For personal enquiries regarding the show, please Contact Us.

British cars and motorcycles only

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.

For a complete list of all our corporate and other sponsors, please check out our sponsors page.

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.
