Vancouver’s Luxury & Supercar Weekend is a multi-million-dollar showcasing of luxury automobiles and sports cars at VanDusen Botanical Garden in September.
The event was cancelled in both 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19. Tentative dates for the event in 2022 are September 10th and 11th.
Luxury & Supercar Weekend in Vancouver
Vancouver’s Luxury & Supercar Weekend takes place on a Saturday and Sunday in early September (usually on the weekend after Labour Day).
The event features exotic and collectible cars, fancy food, adult beverages, and some of the city’s most elite shoppers.
Cars on display include Aston Martins, the Acura NSX, Bentleys, BMWs, Bugattis, Cadillacs, Ferraris, Jaguars, Lamborghinis, Maseratis, McLarens, Porsches, Range Rovers and Rolls-Royces. Lesser well-known but equally exotic vehicles most years include the Karma, Koenigsegg and Pagani.
When and Where
The 2020 edition of the Luxury & Supercar Weekend was set to take place on the weekend of September 12th to 13th. It would have run both days from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm if it was not cancelled due to a global pandemic. Tentative dates for the 2022 event are the weekend of September 10th and 11th.
As it is every year, the venue is beautiful VanDusen Garden which is located at 5251 Oak Street. The entrance to the event is through Gate #2 on the east side of the parking lot just off West 37th Avenue.
Admission to the Luxury & Supercar Weekend costs around $100 for adults (ages 19+). The price includes admission to the venue for one day and access to complimentary food and beverages. Kids ages 10 and under are free when accompanied by a paying adult and kids ages 11 to 18 are half price ($50) with valid ID.
Valet parking is available for a fee of $25 per car, but there is limited availability within the valet parking lot.
(TIP: Some of the food at the event is included with the cost of admission. Some of the food though costs extra. If you just want the complimentary offerings, check first before getting in line, especially if the queue is long.)
What to Expect
At the Luxury & Supercar Weekend you can expect to see a large selection of the world’s most modern, expensive and exotic cars spread around the lawns of VanDusen Botanical Garden. You can also expect to see special collectible cars and other luxury lifestyle products, as well as shoppers with considerable bank accounts.
At the event in 2020, highlights would have included a Luxury and Supercar Auction by ADESA. Some of the featured brands were Lamborghini, Ferrari, McLaren, Pagani, Audi, Bentley, Aston Martin, Porsche, BMW, Rolls-Royce, Range Rover, Jaguar & Mercedes-Benz.
In 2018, other extreme-luxury cars at the event included a Ferrari Portofino, a Rolls Royce Cullinan (which was worth $525,000), the all-new 2019 BMW M850i Coupe and the Singer Porsche Williams DLS (worth $2.2 million). We expect 2021 to be just as exciting and luxurious.
In addition to exotic vehicles to admire and purchase, the Luxury & Supercar Weekend also features luxury watches, pianos, boats and other items to buy and admire. Complimentary water and coffee are available for attendees to enjoy while they browse. Food and beverages are also available on site for sale.
On the Saturday in 2020 there would have been a live supercar auction at 1:30 pm. Last year on the Sunday, at 3:00 pm there was a live piano concert but that does not appear to be the case in 2020. In 2018 there was also a fashion show, but not in 2019 or 2020 (at least not to our knowledge).
In short, if you love exotic cars, or if you’re in the market for a new Bentley, Rolex or Steinway piano, Vancouver’s Luxury & Supercar Weekend at VanDusen Garden is the place to be!
