The Display

The display will mark the 40th anniversary of the event which was first held on the Phillip oval ACT, in 1982. Since then it has raised over $400,000 for local charities.

More than 70 vehicle clubs from Canberra and the region are expected to attend, with many making a concerted effort to arrange and decorate their display area to commemorate the special anniversary of the event.

Over 700 vehicles - bikes, cars and trucks - are expected to be on display. They will include veteran, vintage and historic vehicles, as well as modified, electric and many special interest vehicles, and possibly even a few classic pedal cars.

There will be spotlight displays to mark special anniversaries:

As well as a number of feature exhibits including:

Shannons Wheels 'Car of the Show'

Visitors and exhibitors at Shannons Wheels are asked to bring plenty of gold coins as the ‘Car of the Show’ trophy will be decided using a trial method based on the size of the donation an exhibit attracts.
Each participating exhibit will have a box located nearby in which to deposit coins or tokens.
The exhibit that accumulates the largest donation of coins and tokens will be awarded the ‘Car of the Show’ trophy.
All money raised this way will be donated to the Stroke Foundation.
Attendees are asked to purchase tokens from the Stroke Foundation tent.
The mission of The Stroke Foundation is to prevent, treat and beat stroke.
