SHOW INFORMATION

More than 200 vintage British sports cars will be on display when the British Motorcar Gathering is staged at Hellertown’s Reservoir Park, just south of Bethlehem in eastern Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley.

The annual show features finely restored MGs, Triumphs, Jaguars, Austin-Healeys, Morgans and Minis from every mid-Atlantic state. Classic British sports cars and sedans dating from the 1930s to present day will be displayed in a wooded setting, with separate areas for each make of car.

All makes of British cars and motorcycles, old and new, are welcome.

SPECIAL AWARDS will be presented by our panel of judges. (No popular vote judging — come to the show, enjoy the cars, and relax!) Cars will be parked in classes, based on pre-registration.

The field opens at 9 a.m., the show opens to spectators at 10 a.m. Catered food and drinks are available in a large picnic pavilion — Breakfast sandwiches and coffee in the morning, then excellent cooked sandwiches at lunch time. Or bring your own picnic, with music provided by our DJ all day.

The British Motorcar Gathering will be held RAIN OR SHINE, with no rain date.
