The Great Canadian Volkswagen Show will welcome approximately 5000 car enthusiasts and their families to the Concord Pacific Expo Site. Air-cooled and Water-cooled, New and Old, VWs will be on display and ready for judging throughout the park. Families can enjoy taking part in a variety of activities and vendors will be showcasing what’s new and hot on the market.

Western Canada's largest VW event attracts some of the finest Stock and Custom VWs from around the Pacific Northwest, including many past and present Hot VWs Magazine feature cars (18+ cars shot at past GCVW shows). Over 100 awards in 48 Classes. All types of VWs in any condition welcome. Dealer Displays, Swap Area, 50/50 Draw, Trivia Contests and more...an entire day of VW fun for the whole family!

The fee for displaying your VW is $25 CAD. Registration on Sunday morning takes place from 8am to 11am, space cannot be reserved or guaranteed day-of-show.  Non-Judged is $20.

Swap Meet Area spaces are available for every type of VW parts vendor. We offer small private (15' x 15') swap spaces for $40. Swap setup opens at 7am and closes when space is filled (on a first come, first-served basis) and is usually full by 10am. For Dealer Display and New Product Vendor areas, please contact the show administrator to pre-register (no day-of-show registration for show booths).

Please note: For the safety of all spectators, once vehicles are parked in the show car/swap meet areas they must remain there until after the awards ceremony which runs from @ 3:30-4:30pm.

All events are Rain or Shine, no Refunds.

I'm sorry if this is a dorky question that has been asked and answered before, however I cannot find the answer to this:
"Can I PRE-register for the  GCVWS show section on Sunday? And if I may, who do I contact? "
Again my apologies if this has been previously asked.

If you check out the Mission Raceway calendar, the dates didn't line up.
Organizing a weekend of unrelated events is sometimes not always possible.  Maybe next year.

Mission wasn't announcing dates for events a year out, and giving attendees as much notice (while at the show) so they could plan ahead was asked for. It was mentioned people wanted certainty on dates well in advance, and unfortunately the schedule did not line up for racing once Mission published theirs. With the support of Buny's n Bugs, getting early access to the Twilight Drive-in for people to come hang out, show their cars and hit the snack bar sounded like a great alternative!

Not sure why anyone thinks we haven't "confirmed" that there is no racing. We have answered that question numerous times and clearly have another event on friday night.
Please see all the official posts on social media, facebook,  www.gcvws.com , www.gcvws.info as well as here. Next year we most likely will have racing back....If the dates work. Plain and simple.

Never been to the Vancouver GCVWS... where is the spectator parking? Just on the street somewhere or is their a specific assigned parking lot? Parking fees?
Thanks.

Enter the Concord Pacific lot from Carrall St.  Park inside the lot. The show owns the whole lot for the day, so that is the assigned parking.
