Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines for the 21st Airdrie Show & Shine coming to Nose Creek Park Saturday, August 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Hosted by the Time Travellers car club, the event will feature more than 500 classic, new and custom vehicles and is expected to draw up to 10,000 people.

In addition to all the cool cars, there will be entertainment in the form of a live band and several food trucks will be on-site to quench your thirst and fill your rumbly tummy.

Admission is free, with non-perishable food items and cash donations to the Airdrie Foodbank very gratefully encouraged.

Car owners can register their vehicles for the show with preregistration costing $20 and happening at the East Lake Tim Horton’s on August 11 from 6 to 8 p.m.


The annual Show & Shine is the club’s biggest fund raiser, with funds raised through the show donated to local charities selected and voted on by club members. Local organizations of choice, include the Airdrie Food Bank, Veterans Food Bank, Airdrie Hospice and Iron Horse Train Park.

The Time Travellers car club was founded in 2006 by a core group of six Airdrie auto enthusiasts and has grown to approximately 30 members with monthly meetings held at Iron Horse Park.
