CANCELED British Motoring Festival: Nova Scotia

July 9 @ 12:00 pm - July 11 @ 12:00 pm

Note from Ron Stein:

I was dissapointed to learn yesterday that the British Motoring Festival in Windsor, Nova Scotia has been cancelled for this year.  I understand that with high Covid levels in Nova Scotia, the uncertainties of how long the wave will last, and the financial commitments that have to be made now, the organizers decided not to go ahead.  It’s a shame, as I think we would have had about a dozen Rootes vehicles attend, including out of Province Group members from Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick. 

On a positive note, hopefully by Summer of 2022 Covid will be a distant memory and we will even have a better turnout next year.  Circle the second weekend of July 2022 and try to to keep it open and join in.  Nova Scotia, and the Maritimes in general, are a special place, and definitely worth exploring for an extended holiday.  Our home base, the Old Orchard Inn and Spa is considered by most the nicest facility in the region.  Hopefully they will again reserve a block of rooms for our Group at a discounted rate next year.  If you are booked at the Inn, don’t forget to cancel your room, if you do not intend to travel to Nova Scotia just for a holiday.  Thanks to Rod Patriquin and Bob Hamilton for arranging the rooms, and their work for a Group driving tour.  The good thing is the work won’t go to waste, as it can be used again next year.

Anticipated to be the largest Maritime gathering of Rootes vehicles ever!

Don’t miss out on an entertaining weekend where one day will be spent at the large annual British Motoring Festival in Windsor, Nova Scotia, and the other a scenic coastal drive to well known highlights in the area, like Mahone Bay, an exceptionally picturesque town, and famous Peggy’s Cove.  You can also witness the highest tides in the world, with a difference of a whopping 53 feet!!  Make it part of a longer holiday!

Nova Scotia Rootes cars
The variety of Rootes vehicles in the Maritimes is second to none in North America, even a Karrier!
