Vancouver’s Luxury & Supercar Weekend is a multi-million-dollar showcasing of luxury automobiles and sports cars.
The event used to take place at VanDusen Botanical Garden in September. It was cancelled in both 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19. In 2022 it happened on July 9th at its new venue, in the plaza outside Richmond’s Olympic Oval. It takes place at the same spot next year too. 2023 dates, however, are to be confirmed.
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 the global coronavirus pandemic. Unfortunately, the event didn’t happen in 2021 either.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Luxury & Supercar Weekend used to be held at the beautiful VanDusen Garden located at 5251 Oak Street.
The event returned in 2022, although a couple months earlier than usual and at a new location. The 2022 Vancouver Luxury & Supercar Weekend took place on Saturday, July 9th. It was held at the Olympic Riverside Plaza just outside the Olympic Oval in Richmond. The new venue’s address is 6111 River Road.
2023 event dates and details are to be confirmed.
In 2022 general admission to the Luxury & Supercar Weekend cost around $40 for adults (ages 19+) and $30 for students. Tickets for kids ages 13 and under cost $25.
VIP tickets were also available for $75 each. The price included admission and access to complimentary food and beverages.
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 outside the Richmond Olympic Oval. 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 2022, highlights included cars featured in movies as well as a special preview of the 2023 Diamond Rally supercars. There was also a basketball tournament presented by Cars and Hoops inside the Richmond Olympic Oval. Proceeds benefitted Canuck Place.
Some of the featured supercar brands in 2022 were Lamborghini, Ferrari, Pagani, Audi, Bentley, Aston Martin, Range Rover, Bugatti & Mercedes-Benz.
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!
