CALLANDER CLASSIC WEEKEND


The superb picturesque Ben Ledi Park in open countryside and within five minutes walk from the centre of Callander is the home of the Callander Classic Weekend. A weekend event designed especially for the enjoyment and participation by classic and sports car clubs and owners. An event where all club members and single entrants, their friends and families can enjoy our unique atmosphere of fun and friendly inter classic marque camaraderie.

August 24th 25th 26th next year will mark the 25th Anniversary of the Callander Classic Weekend. We are planning a major celebration and to invite new comers and all the clubs, single entrant owners and many traders who have supported the event over the years, both at the old Doune Motor Museum and latterly Callander to join us in our celebrations.

The 25th Anniversary will retain the usual weekend format by commencing early on Friday evening with an invitation extended to all participating clubs, single entrants and traders to join us for a complimentary drink at an informal welcome reception. During the next two days of celebrations we shall feature a host of new attractions along with the old favourites.

"Jazz, Blues and Classics" is the chosen theme for the weekend with jazz and blues bands performing live during the afternoons. Entrants are invited to come in period costume reflecting the age of their car. Saturday evening the entrants and traders are welcome to the Celebration Party and BBQ with live music provided by a Scottish Ceilidh band.

We would like to hear from clubs also celebrating a special occasion next year. Perhaps it's the anniversary of a particular model launch or even the formation of your club. We will incorporate this into our celebrations. If any club would like to be considered for one of our special marque display enclosures please contact us.
