It’s an annual tradition for car lovers to plan some of their leisure time between June and September around the busy schedule of Ontario summer car shows.
Throughout the province, there’s auto shows taking place every weekend. Several will be held in the Greater Toronto Area. Here are seven of the Ontario summer car shows we think will be worth attending.
7 must-see Ontario summer car shows
1. Gravenhurst Car Show (June 16th, Gravenhurst): One of the largest Ontario summer car shows takes place on the scenic shores of Gravenhurst’s Gull Lake, a couple of hours north of Toronto.
Spend Father’s Day weekend taking in this event, which promises a showcase of over 400 classic, collectible, and rare vehicles for attendees.
2. Shelburne Street Festival Classic Car Show (June 16th, Shelburne): A 90 minute drive north of the city brings you to Shelburne, which has been hosting this festival every Saturday on Father’s Day weekend for years.

3. The Yorkville Exotic Car Show (June 17th, Toronto): Father’s Day weekend gives auto lovers a ton of options when it comes to Ontario summer car shows to attend. Here’s yet another one, taking place in Toronto’s upscale Bloor-Yorkville area.

Why your prized vehicles deserve a beautiful home
Many visitors to these popular Ontario summer car shows have classic cars themselves or more modern luxury cars.
Prized vehicles lose some of their appeal when they’re parked in a drab garage environment that just doesn’t complement their classic charm or exquisite looks effectively.
