Vancouver’s Luxury & Supercar Weekend is a $250 million showcasing of luxury automobiles and sports cars at VanDusen Botanical Garden in September.
Luxury & Supercar Weekend
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 include the Karma, Koenigsegg and Pagani.
When and Where
The 2018 edition of the Luxury & Supercar Weekend took place on the weekend of September 8th to 9th. It usually runs both days from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm.
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 $125 for adults (ages 19+). The price includes admission to the venue for one day and access to complimentary food and beverages. Children ages 6 to 18 cost $75 and kids ages 4 and under are free.
(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 2018, highlights included the 40th anniversary of the Land Rover Defender, a Dino Ferrari, the very first Porsche ever made, and the finest collection of Dodge Vipers on the planet. The event also featured the official Canadian public launch of the Pagani Huayra BC, which is worth $4.5 million.
Other extreme-luxury cars at the 2018 event included a Ferrari Portofino, a Rolls Royce Cullinan (which is worth $525,000), the all-new 2019 BMW M850i Coupe and the Singer Porsche Williams DLS (worth $2.2 million).
The first Porsche ever made is obviously priceless. It and these other above-mentioned ultra-extreme vehicles are no doubt what helps bring the total value of all the cars on display up to the $250 million total.
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 food and beverages are available for attendees to enjoy while they browse.
On the Saturday in 2018, at 2:30 pm, there was also a $10-million live luxury and supercar auction. And on the Sunday, at 3:00 pm, there was a live piano concert. On both days there were also fashion shows at both 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm.
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!
