Whether you have a particular love for MGs or just like classic cars in general, the Classic Car Field Meet is an event you won’t want to miss.

This year marks the 35th anniversary for the event, which takes place Sunday, July 24 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Beaver Lake Park in the field in front of Elk Lake Drive.

The event is open to all makes and models of classic cars. While the British MGs make up the majority of cars at the show, makes and models such as Triumphs, Porsches, Jaguars, Miatas, Land Rovers, Lotuses and BMWs are on display as well.

The show will include mostly cars from the ‘60s and ‘70s,” said Phil Winterbottom, a director for the Victoria MG Car Club.

“It’s a great event for car lovers of all ages. The proceeds go to a worthy cause that we have supported for a number of years.”

The Victoria MG Club has grown to about 100 MG enthusiasts, and membership is open to anyone, whether they own an MG or not, as long as they share a passion for the car.

The club was founded by a small group of MG enthusiasts in 1981 who wanted to preserve and maintain their vehicles with like-minded drivers.

Admission to the event is by donation, with proceeds going to the Lions Club Camp Shawnigan for Kids.
