About The 2013 Event
After eight years of holding the Steamworks Concours in Gastown, a number of us got together and decided that the opportunity to bring together an eclectic group of superlative automobiles and bikes to show to the public should not be lost. Borrowing upon our experience organizing the Steamworks Concours we carried on its tradition of celebrating excellence and friendship within the collector car and bike community. To this end we secured a venue by the ocean at Blackie Spit Park, Crescent Beach.
Continuing in the spirit of the former Steamworks Concours, the 2012 event marked the 10th year that we have brought together a Labour Day long weekend gathering of Collector Automobiles and Motorcycles. The event is now a full Concours d’Elegance format.
Blackie Spit is a well-known wildlife conservation area, which makes it unique as a venue. The ‘by the ocean’ setting’ is within walking-distance to Crescent Beach restaurants and businesses and the lovely Dunsmuir Community Gardens. Once again we will use the Ocean Promenade Hotel in White Rock as our entrant hotel and Beecher Place for our entrant reception.
We are searching for nominations of exceptional automobiles and motorcycles to be included in the 2013 event Saturday, August 31st, 2013. From these nominations, a sourcing committee will select up to 80 outstanding collector automobiles and motorcycles from Canada and the United States.
