Have a British car or motorcycle you’d like to enter? Simply scroll all the way down to register online for the 7th annual BRITFEST car and motorcycle show. Once there, you will see where you can register, order a show t-shirt and reserve a spot at our Welcome Reception. Be sure to mark your calendar for the 1st Saturday in October!
Our “Welcome Reception” will be Friday night, October 4th, from 6 – 9 at Nacho Hippo. This is a really fun place and we’ll have a nacho and taco bar with all the trimmings. You’ll only be 1.5 miles from our host hotel! Plus, you will be just a couple blocks from the show field which will help get you oriented before the day of the show. You must register in advance for this event and tickets are only $18 per person for the buffet which includes non-alcoholic drinks. Adult beverages will also be available.
There may still be rooms available at DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Myrtle Beach Oceanfront so be sure to mention the “Grand Strand British Car Club” http://group.doubletree.com/GrandStrandBritishCarClub
On the day of the show, our “English Tea” is always a big hit, as are the “Canine Angels Service Dogs” who benefit from the proceeds of our event. We also have a wide variety of cool baskets with great stuff that you can win with $1 raffle tickets.
Of course we always have lots of beautiful British cars and motorcycles which can be seen in our Gallery! If you want to see those pictures, just click on the picture to see others connected to the car or event.
We hope to see you October 5, 2019!
