The Bay to Birdwood is one of the world’s great historic motoring events. First held in 1980 the event has become a fixture on the South Australian events calendar. It is a mass- participatory citizen-collector historic motoring event. It draws participants from far and wide and attracts thousands of spectators to line the route and attend the start and finish events. Breakfast is available early at the start sites and then the passing parade is greeted by the spectators as it makes it way to the finish at the Adelaide Hills township of Birdwood.
At the finish there is entertainment, local produce, food and wine, children’s activities and the camaraderie of participating in and celebrating this internationally renowned event. The judging of the vehicle awards takes place at the finish as well as the Fashions in the Field- where anyone has the chance to show off their finery and win great prices.
