The Donkey Sanctuary’s famous Car Show in Sidmouth, Devon is back for 2019!

50.6966458, -3.190148

Slade House Farm, Sidmouth, EX10 0NU.

One for motor enthusiasts and their families, join us for a chilled day of car conversation, live music, delicious street food and sweet treats and children’s activities.

2018 saw a record number of cars booked to exhibit and 2019 will be no different; expect a whole mix of motors from vintage and classics to modern and modified!

Those exhibiting their pride and joy will be automatically entered into our light-hearted Show ‘n’ Shine awards, with various prizes from local sponsors up for grabs for the 12 categories, including ‘Organisers Favourite’ and ‘Shiniest Car’. 

Throughout the day there'll also be live performances from the UK’s No.1 Amy Winehouse tribute act and local band, Static Charge, while children will be kept entertained with some fun activities just for them. 

Take part in our raffle featuring prizes for some of Devon’s top family attractions, dinner for two, a trip to the cinema and a money can’t buy prize! There will also be a selection of trade stands offering all-manner of motoring goodies to treat yourself to.

The show field is located just across the road from The Donkey Sanctuary, which is home to hundreds of friendly donkeys just waiting to meet you before, during or after the Car Show. The Kitchen restaurant will also be open all day serving breakfast, lunch and cream teas. 


£5 (+0.77 booking fee) per pre-booked car or £8 per car on the gate, subject to availability (payment on the gate will only be accepted if we do not sell out of spaces beforehand).

We have a limited amount of spaces available and expect demand to be high this year after selling out in 2018, so we recommend pre-booking your space as early as possible. Pre-book your exhibitor space today.
