Yes, it’s that time of year again; Car Show Season! I’ve blogged about car shows before, and of course we visited Haynes Motor Museum recently; so it’s no secret that we’re car fans in this house (even me and I can’t drive!)
This year, instead of individual posts, I thought I’d round everything up into one big post.
In this post, I’ll share some photos and information from the fab shows we’ve attended this year! You can also find some photos on my highlights on Instagram; from the Marie Curie Country and Classics show this past weekend.
West Cornwall Motor Show
The first show of the year is always West Cornwall Motor Show, over in Wendron. Stu and I always call this the “starter show”. It’s always a great day out, taking place at Wendron cricket club.
There is free parking and at just £3 each to get in; it’s a great chance to see some cars and won’t break the bank! There is lots to see and do for all the family; with kids games and small rides; craft stalls including freshly baked cakes and other treats; and even a dog show!
There are also several food stands and of course the bar; which this year also had a beer and cider festival! With lots of live entertainment throughout the day, there is something for everyone. Of course the star attraction is the cars, and there are certainly all manner of makes and models; whether you’re into classics or more modern cars! Or perhaps enjoy seeing modified vehicles…
Wadebridge “Wheels” Car Show
The weather was a little disappointing for Wadebridge Wheels car show; our second of the year, which though warm, has in the past been known to be incredibly hot! Wadebridge Wheels is the biggest show we go to. Both in terms of space and the number of vehicles present!
There is so much to see; as well as entertainments, stalls, lots of food and drinks options, activities for the kids and more! Organised and managed every year by the Wadebridge Rotary Club; there are always loads of different cars to see, for every taste, and this show is only growing!
Country and Classic
Our final show was the Marie Curie Country and Classics show; which this year, moved from it’s regular location of Trewithen gardens, to Tregrehan gardens.
A bargain at £5 per person entry, with free parking, it was really different to the Trewithen show. There was a little more walking, and of course a different layout considering the new location. Personally, though it meant travelling a little further; this may have been our favourite show this year! Tregrehan was a perfect location, and though a smaller show, the different cars shown were wonderful!
As well as the cars, there were food and drinks, craft stalls; and entertainment on the lawns of the beautiful gardens. It was a wonderful day, all in the name of charity, and we really enjoyed it.

We’re even thinking about attending a couple more shows this year, which will be good fun. It’s always interesting to see what’s around, and meet people who bring their cars from further afield. Not to mention getting to give a little to charity; and the community at these events, while enjoying the summer weather!
Do you have favourite cars? Or perhaps attend any events local to you? Let me know in the comments!
