Festival of the Rolling Arts – Car Show & Show N’ Shine

August 5 - August 6

The Coasters Car Club 26th Annual Sleepy Hollow Rod Run and Show ‘n’ Shine showcases all the love that has gone into the preservation and restoration of these incredible vehicles. Classic cars, hot rods and specialty vehicles line the streets filling the air with nostalgia. For more info, check out the Coasters Car Club website

Rod Run

This family event starts on Friday with cars registering at Hackett Park from 1:00 PM until 5:30 PM for the Rod Run to Halfmoon Bay. At the park, there will be a concession stand selling food and beverages. Prior to the Rod Run, there will be a free corn roast for the participants. This gives everyone a chance to meet and greet local car club members and out of town guests. The 30 km Rod Run cruise starts at 6:15 PM and is lead by our local RCMP with 450+ classic cars winding their way through 3-4000 spectators that line the highway from Sechelt to the Halfmoon Bay Fire Hall. Participants are always amazed at the warm welcome and enthusiasm by the cheering crowds that gather alongside the roadway. The spectators make signs, dress in costumes and place couches/ lawn chairs in their driveways. You also see a number of barbecues and house parties in full swing. See the YouTube Video of the Rod Run.
