Cowes Classics Day 2024 LogoSunday 7 July 2024 will be a very special day in Cowes. Once again, we welcome Classic Car owners from both the Isle of Wight and beyond to display their wonderful and often unique examples of classic motoring on The Parade in the heart of Cowes. As a further attraction, there will also be a collection of historic and iconic motor vessels and yachts moored at Trinity Landing in front of The Parade, and flypasts/displays by two classic aircraft including a Spitfire.

Visiting this unique automotive and maritime showcase is free of charge. 

  • Over 50 classic cars on display.
  • A unique collection of interesting and historic motor vessels and yachts.
  • Explore the stories of each car and boat from the presentation notes displayed prominently on each entry.
  • Talk to the owners and restorers.
  • Vote for your favourite car and boat. There will be an Awards ceremony at 4.30pm.
  • Further attractions are being prepared and will be unveiled soon.

Cowes Classics Day is a day to celebrate the past and revive nostalgic memories, with classic cars, famous aircraft, yachts and motor boats on display for all to enjoy.

The event is set on and around The Parade, in front of the royal yacht clubs in Cowes, Isle of Wight, the historical home of yachting in the UK. Visitors will be able to enjoy this unique gathering of historic and interesting cars, boats and planes, accompanied by a support programme of activities and happenings. Nearly 1,000 people visited Cowes Classics Day last year, and we expect to significantly exceed that participation this year.


If you would like to enter your classic car in the Cowes Classics Day display, you can participate without cost!
