Vancouver Easter Vintage Car Rally at Trev Deeley in 2019

Red Antiques at Car Rally

The Vancouver Chapter of the Vintage Car Club of Canada holds a car rally every Easter Sunday. In 2019 it takes place at Trev Deeley on Boundary Road.

In past years it has taken place in the parking lot of the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre. More recently, however, its starting venue is at a popular motorcycle store instead.

Vintage Car Club Easter Gathering

Last year Easter Sunday was on April 1, which also, incidentally, was April Fool’s Day. On that day over 70 vintage cars gathered in the parking lot of Trev Deeley Motorcycles in Vancouver before heading out on a “mystery drive” to a yet-to-be-disclosed location.

In 2019 Easter Sunday is on April 21st and the event will again take place at Trev Deeley Motorcycles.

Dozens of beautiful antique and other classic vehicles and hundreds of people turn out for the event.

About the Car Rally

Vehicles typically arrive between 10:00 am and 12:00 pm and the venue’s parking lot scene is spectacular. You don’t need to be a vintage car enthusiast to appreciate the collection of automobiles on display.

At the event there is everything – from antique Fords to Corvettes, Firebirds and every kind of vintage collectible you can imagine.

At around noon or so the cars depart from their starting venue in procession, for a road tour around the city to a final secret destination. It is a fun event for the vintage car participants, but also for everyone that sees them.

Car Rally Details

The Easter Car Rally takes place on Easter Sunday at Trev Deeley Motorcycles at 1875 Boundary Road. Cars gather there between around 10:00 am and 12:00 pm.

At noon participants depart for a tour around the city before arriving at a yet undisclosed location. The destination is announced just before the procession of cars heads out.

Admission to the morning event is free for the public and about $5 or $10 or so per non-member participating vehicle.

Mark your calendars for this fabulous Easter Sunday event each year. If you like collectible cars you won’t want to miss it! It’s like a giant antique Hot Wheels museum outdoors!

Last year the car rally’s final destination was Central Park in Burnaby. 2019’s finishing venue won’t be announced until the day of the event on April 21st.
