Burnley Vintage & Performance Car Show

Saturday 9th September – 11am-4pm

Get revved up for a fun day out that the whole family will enjoy!

On Saturday 9th September, Burnley is hosting a Vintage & Performance Car Show in the town centre.

Building on the success of last year’s show, 2023’s event will feature an array of classic and retro vehicles lining up on St James’s Street all the way down to Curzon Street.

There will also be a selection of motorbikes – the eye-catching vehicles aren’t just limited to four wheels you know!

Do you have a vintage or performance vehicle that you would like to exhibit on the day?

So much to see and do!

But the best thing is that the entertainment isn’t just limited to engines and alloys!

Alongside the vehicles, visitors will be able to enjoy an exciting car themed trail with a prize for each participant & music from a brass brand to add even more atmosphere to the day.


The event will begin at 11am and run until 16pm, so you have plenty of time to get yourself into Burnley and enjoy the show!

If you’re coming along to the event please take some time, if you can, to visit our town centre businesses.

They would love to see you!

The Burnley Vintage & Performance Car Show 2023 is being brought to you by Burnley Business Improvement District, with support from The Rotary Club of Burnley.

Meet Optimus Prime

At 12pm, 1pm, and 2pm you’ll find Optimus eyeing up the competition and sniffing out any Decepticons hiding in the ranks!

You might even find him riding some of the childrens rides down on Curzon Street!

“Last year we were lucky enough to have a fantastic mixture of vehicles in attendance for people to admire and the event really drew in the crowds.

There was a real buzz in 2022 which generated a fantastic atmosphere throughout the day, so why not come along and be a part of it?”
