The McLaren Vale Vintage & Classic gears up for its 18th year, promising a celebration of motoring history. This signature street parade, scheduled for Sunday, 14 April, is set to impress with a new touch of luxury—introducing a fleet of Rolls Royce cars to the lineup for the very first time.
“We’ve only really ever had one or two Rolls Royces in the past, so this year is expected to be quite special,” McLaren Vale Vintage & Classic Chairman, Nigel Williamson, says.
With more than 15 elegant and luxurious British cars gracing the McLaren Vale Main Street, the parade will be a magnificent sight. But the event isn’t just about cars; there will also be vintage fashion, local wines, gourmet food, and live entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.
“We encourage all South Australian car collectors to get behind this year’s parade and register their vehicle to join in on the festivities,” urged Nigel.
Registrations for vehicle entries are now open until Saturday, 23 March, offering enthusiasts the chance to showcase their prized vintage, classic, or motorcycle vehicles. An entry fee of $40 per vehicle applies.
The Grand Parade will kick off at 11 am, with all vehicles setting off from the open lawns at the front of Serafino McLaren Vale. Attendees can enjoy breakfast prepared by the Rotary Club of Morphett Vale and coffee by Bracegirdles while mingling with fellow car lovers and admiring period outfits from participants.
Following the parade, spectators and entrants are encouraged to explore the region’s fourteen participating wineries, where a range of vehicles will be on display alongside food stalls, wine tastings, and live entertainment—offering the perfect Sunday day out with family and friends.
“It’s not just a great opportunity for locals to come together and showcase our beautiful region, but it also gives back to the community,” he says.
Last year’s charity event saw significant donations to various organisations, including the Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation and the Southern Koala & Echidna Rescue—a testament to the event’s commitment to supporting local causes.
