Inaugural Drive Festival a Success

Drive Festival 2021 was a ton of fun with over 17,000 attendees. Even bigger things in store for 2022!

Thank you for supporting Drive Festival in 2021, as it was a terrific success! Our event delivered a dynamic automotive event to the Ontario market never seen before. We want to thank the volunteers, exhibitors, sponsors, vehicle owners, venue, contractors and attendees for supporting this first-year event in a difficult time.

We have received a lot of feedback and input to make our 2022 event even better. As a result, we have confirmed September 9-11, 2022, as we work on creating Canada’s best dynamic automotive festival.

Delivered over 4,000 test-drive experiences over 3-days with four manufacturers.
Some of the world’s most exclusive cars are shown at speed on our Dream Car Speed Run including a Pagani Huayra Roadster BC, Porsche 935, original GT40, McLaren Can-Am car – 100s of unique and amazing vehicles participated over the weekend.
