Check out Kars on King from 3 pm to 9:30 pm in downtown Oshawa on Friday, August 25, 2017! Then head to Lakeview Park for Autofest on Saturday morning: Exhibitor gates open at 7 am on August 26 2017, and the spectator gates open at  9am.  And while you’re checking out the more than 1300 cars on display, don’t miss free car seminars, vendors, craft area, and Poker Run.

Parking is free, but due to the popularity of the event, may be limited.  If driving, go early for the best chance of finding a nearby spot.  If you are heading to Lakeview Park or Lakeview Park Beach but aren’t attending Autofest, be aware that the event will take up most of the park space, and most access points to the park will be closed off by fencing.

Cost:  Day Pass is $12
