Bay to Birdwood | Celebrating 40 Years | 27 Sep 2020

Bay to Birdwood 2020

The Bay to Birdwood is the largest, continually held motoring event for veteran, vintage and classic vehicles held anywhere in the world.  The 2020 Bay to Birdwood will take place as planned on Sunday 27 September 2020, however, this year, the event will be livestreamed.

THE PARADE OF HISTORIC MOTORING

The event will run along the 72km route as usual (route map below and available here), however the start and finish sites will not be open to members of the public this year. Only participants, their vehicle passengers, event staff and pre-approved media/authorised persons will be allowed on site.

Keeping everyone safe is important so the event will start earlier than normal with the classics departing from 7.30am followed by veteran and vintage vehicles departing later. 

WHERE TO WATCH 

Fans, enthusiasts and the curious will be able to view the parade of vintage, veteran and classic historic vehicles from all decades as they make their way along the 72 kilometre route from West Beach to the National Motor Museum – Australia in the Adelaide Hills. Other event highlights over the weekend include the judging on Saturday 26 September and presentation of the Concours d’Elegance and Preservation awards on Monday 28 September.
 
The live stream will be anchored by veteran South Australian broadcaster and avid historian Keith Conlon, who will be joined by co-hosts The Adelaide Show’s Steve Davis, and author and columnist Lainie Anderson, plus special guests throughout the broadcast.

**Please note: the National Motor Museum will be closed on Sunday 27 September until 2pm

VISIT THE ADELAIDE HILLS

Rather than inviting entrants to congregate at the National Motor Museum in Birdwood, visitors are encouraged to explore the Adelaide Hills parks, cafes, wineries, restaurants, pubs and other attractions.

Working closely with Adelaide Hills Tourism to create some tips and suggestions so you can show support to those businesses in the Hills who have been impacted by the Cudlee Creek Bushfires and now COVID-19, they hope you will explore with your fabulous vehicles and fashions of the era the great offerings in the Hills and provide a much-needed boost to the economy.
