The Donkey Sanctuary’s popular Car Show in Sidmouth, Devon is back for 2019! One for motor enthusiasts and their families, join us for a relaxed day of car conversation, live music, delicious street food and sweet treats and children’s activities.

Slade House Farm, Sidmouth, EX10 0NU.

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 across the 12 categories, including 'Organiser's Favourite' and 'Shiniest Car'.

Throughout the day there'll also be live performances from the Official Amy Winehouse Tribute, My Winehouse and local pop/rock 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, as well as delicious local food and sweet treats to satisfy the appetite. 

The show field is located just across the road from The Donkey Sanctuary (open 9am - 5pm), 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 from 9am - 5pm for breakfast, lunch and cream teas.
