Hawkesbury Auto Expo this Sunday, September 5

The annual Hawkesbury Auto Expo will take place this Sunday, September 5, on the town’s Main Street.

Named for 2021 as Auto Expo Édition Covid, the event is being hosted by the Hawkesbury Auto Club, which has been holding regular cruise evenings throughout the summer. The Auto Expo will begin at 8 a.m. and is scheduled to run until 4 p.m.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the event has been downsized for 2021 and will follow all public health safety regulations. Masks will be required at certain areas and there will be no Auto Expo 2021 t-shirts sold.

Unlike past years, vehicles will not be judged to win trophies. Instead there will be a draw for prize money, including two for $1,000 and another two for $500. A 50/50 draw is also being held to help raise funds for the Hawkesbury Food Bank.

The entry fee for vehicles is $20 and participants are asked to arrive early so that the vehicles can all be parked on Main Street in time for the show.
