Riviera Classic Car Show

On 21st July 2024

The display of fabulous vehicles is complemented by stage entertainment through the day, food outlets, a craft marquee and licensed bar.  This is a unique event which has developed its own very special relaxed and friendly atmosphere.  Such is its popularity that exhibitors bring their vehicles from over much of England, and bookings for spaces are full months in advance.  Some entries are individuals, whilst there are also clubs taking their own stand spaces. The range of vehicles is quite something to behold!  There are a few rare examples from the early part of the 1900s, lots of classics from the 50s to 70s or even a bit later.  There’s also a sprinkling of modern customs and supercars, commercial vehicles, scooters and motorbikes.

The show site is right at the heart of one of the most popular and busiest parts of Torbay and is always enjoyed by families on holiday as well as locals who make a point of visiting every year. With so much to see and do, it’s a great day out for all the family.

  • Excellent. Recommended. - Numbers on board restricted due to Covid, but it didn't spoil our enjoyment. The Round Robin three-in-one ticket is a must do if you are in the area.
  • Excellent! - A wonderful experience and not to be missed, steam train and paddle steamer through glorious scenery.
  • Absolutely fabulous experience - The whole day was fabulous with great weather and steam trains. The line is one of the most scenic you will ever experience and is a must visit if in the area. I will definitely be back again :-)
