Get set for the huge vintage boat/auto show in Gravenhurst, July 8.

July 3, 2017 in Blog

The Toronto Chapter,  ACBS,  is once again hosting one of the largest international antique and classic boat shows in North America.  Over 100 vintage vessels will on display at the wharves in Gravenhurst Ontario (about a 2.5 hour drive north of Toronto).  And that is only the beginning.  The show will include Concours D’Elegance vintage autos, children’s activities, a flea market,  “field of dreams” and over fifty vendors.  (Port Carling Boats will be one of them.  Be sure to stop by and say “hello”. )
There are also a number of pre and post show day activities, beginning on July 4th and ending the day after the show.
Best of all, in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday bash,  admission to the show is FREE.
