2024 Brookswood Community Car Show

Brookswood Community Car Show

The Brookswood Community Car Show is a school fundraising event in Metro Vancouver showcasing vintage and other classic cars. It happens in Langley in May.

In addition to lots of really cool vehicles, the event also features food and a few kid-friendly activities.

The car show takes place on May 26th in 2024. That’s the weekend after Victoria Day and the Fort Langley Parade. It’s also the same weekend as the West of Main Art Walk in Vancouver, Hyack Parade & Festival in New Westminster, and Ladner May Days in Delta.

Brookswood Community Car Show in Langley

The Brookswood Car Show is a smaller event in Langley, but also a really good one. It began in 2017 as a fundraising event for Brookswood Secondary School and it continues to operate as such today. All proceeds from the show go to the school and help fund student programs.

At the event there are plenty of beautiful vehicles on display as well as food trucks and activities like a bouncy castle and obstacle course for the little kids.

TIP: Another fabulous car show in the Lower Mainland is the All British Field Meet at VanDusen Botanical Garden on May 18th (which is the Saturday of the May Long Weekend). The event on May 18th is actually the largest car show of its kind in Western Canada! If you like collectible and vintage vehicles, especially British ones, this is an event you won’t want to miss. Hundreds of cars participate! It’s a sight to see!

Location and Admission

The Brookswood Community Car Show is held on the grounds of Brookswood Secondary School at 20902 37A Avenue in Langley. It’s just south of downtown Langley City and about 12 kms southeast of Cloverdale in Surrey. The event takes place regardless of the weather, so if it rains make sure to take an umbrella!

Admission to the event is by donation. As mentioned above, all proceeds from the car show go directly to the school and its student programs. For those who want to register their car to be displayed at the event it costs $20 to do so in advance or $25 on the day of the show.

TIP: If you want to combine your trip to the car show with a visit to a museum, good ones to check out are the Museum of Surrey in Cloverdale and Fort Langley (which is about 17 kms away in the Township of Langley). The first of these has free admission for everyone. The second one is free for children ages 17 and under.


Fort Langley Jazz Festival



May 18th to 20th is the Victoria Day Long Weekend in 2024. On May 18th there is a Hawaiian Luau event at the Fort Langley Historic Site. On May 20th there is the Fort Langley May Day Parade & Fair (where special activities again also take place at the fort).

Other big and important events coming up in the area are the Fort Langley Jazz & Arts Festival (on July 25th to 28th) and Ribfest Langley (on August 16th to 18th).

What to Expect

The Brookswood Car Show isn’t one of the biggest car shows the Lower Mainland has to offer. Nevertheless, it’s still a good one. There is a fair number of old, classic and interesting cars to see. Every year the event runs from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm with people setting up their cars beginning at around 8:00 am.

Along with the vehicles there are other parts of the event to enjoy. There is usually some live music as well as a couple of food trucks. When we went a couple of years ago there was the choice between burgers, hot dogs and crepes from the vendors on hand.

There are also activities designed specifically for children. When we went in 2022 there was a bouncy castle as well as a small obstacle course. Public washrooms are available outside of the school so no one has to go inside the building (since it’s a weekend).
