While there will be much to see at the show, visitors are encouraged to take advantage of historic downtown Lewes, home to a wonderful number of shops and restaurants, as well as all that the Delaware beach area has to offer.

2020 Should have been the 25th anniversary show, which like many events had to be rescheduled. Many details relating to the show are dependent upon current state of the pandemic and social distancing requirements. Stay tuned for additional details.

Registration this year is electronic only through Eventbrite

All those attending with a British Car or as spectators agree to honor applicable social distancing and mask requirements. On show day Food and beverages will be available for purchase on site, courtesy of Grain on the Rocks, the new chic dining spot within the Ferry Terminal. Grain has graciously agreed to offer $1.00 off drinks for show car registrants.

Class trophies, awarded based on popular vote by spectators, will be presented at the conclusion of the show.
