The Bay to Birdwood is an annual historic vehicle run held in South Australia. The special 40th anniversary 2020 Bay to Birdwood will take place on 27 September 2020 and will involve antique, veteran, vintage and post-war/early-classic, classic, post-classic and modern vehicles: an event celebrating every decade of historic motoring.
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 event, 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 everyone has the chance to show off their finery and win great prizes.
