The Humboldt Vintage Club Car Show makes its second appearance on May 28. Last year’s inaugural event drew local roadsters and classics. This year promises to be bigger and better, says organizer Les Hilgers.
“It’s growing with tradition. There will be three to four clubs coming out of Saskatoon and Martensville. This year we have sponsors backing us up with booths on site. We even have a car appraiser coming so you can get your vehicle appraised for insurance purposes and value.”
The proceeds of the event will go to support the Vintage Club. Many of its fundraising opportunities were lost during the pandemic, so the new and improved event will be a welcome opportunity to refill the coffers. The funds will help offset the cost of a new 40 by 80 foot storage shed that’s just gone up at the Club’s site south of Humboldt on Highway 20.
In addition to the import car clubs, there will be plenty of “local talent” on site, ensuring the range of makes, models and mods will be outstanding.
“We’re shooting for a cap of about 100 cars this year, so we’ll see how this goes.”
In addition to the awesome automotive display, the Club will be holding its draw for their beef raffle. Winners could take home a side of beef or a Traeger barbecue courtesy of Horizon Fertilizers. Attendees could also win free tickets to the annual Steak Supper held later in the year.
The onsite Eaton’s tea-house will be open to explore, and the mini-steam engine will be all fired up for kids rides.
Along with food and beverage booths, there will be plenty to see and do at this auto enthusiasts dream. Entry to the event is free. Activities go from 10 am - 3 pm on Sunday, May 28.
