Just because the weather outside says it’s still winter doesn’t mean car enthusiasts in Ontario and Quebec are cut off from their automotive addictions. The Toronto Indy and Canadian Grand Prix are certainly popular, but there are plenty of other events on the 2020 calendar to choose from, starting this weekend.
In chronological order, here are 10 of the top events for enthusiasts in both provinces. Time to get yer motor runnin’!
This year marks the first for this event , but with inspiration coming from Gabriel Ratté, I have no doubt of its success. Combining his passion for vintage cars and retro art, Ratté is known for his own cool cars and epic road trips.
He will be producing this marché aux puces (flea market) in Drummondville, Quebec with 30,000 sq ft of parts for cars, motorcycles and snowmobiles, along with retro collectibles. There’s a pre-’80s car show and gathering of pre-’80 antique cars, plus live rockabilly bands playing rock ‘n’ roll from the ’50s.
