Rev-up your engines, the biggest and best American & Classic Car Show is back for a sixth lap of the track in 2019!

So check under your hood and pack up your trunk - and get ready for a totally awesome weekend. With over 100 'Classic' American and Canadian cars already booked to attend, this should get Can-Am enthusiasts licking their lips in anticipation. There'll be the fast and the furious, with a mix of muscle cars, hot-rods and American classics - including Chevrolet's, Cadillacs, Trucks, and Jeeps.


Refill your tanks after journeying down to Cofton - we'll be hosting a party in the marquee on Friday night with the fabulous Victory Vixens!

The Cofton Cruise has become an iconic part of the Car Show Weekend experience - a rare chance to see a roaring cavalcade of the finest throwback motors riding together!

If you're taking part in the cruise, meet us at the Showfield and get your place in the fleet. We then depart from Cofton and cruise on down to Dawlish before settling on the green at Dawlish Warren - allowing the public a sneak peak at the cars and the drivers a chance to soak up the sun on the grass!

We return to Cofton in the early afternoon and kick off the festivities with the infamous Cofton Dog Show - and a chance to find out who'll be crowned Top Dog? All of your preened pooches are welcome to enter across a number of fun categories! There will be a small entrance charge for each category, with monies raised going to a dog charity of our choice!

There'll be some finger lickin-ly delicious food from a range of fabulous local suppliers and plenty of refreshing beverages on hand should you wish to keep your tanks topped up!

In the evening there'll  be some yee-haw live music and entertainment in the Showfield from Dolly Parton tribute Dolly Jo,

It's time to dust off your glad rags - we're inviting all of the party goers to come dressed in their finest 50's dress - lets go to town!

The night will go out with a bang - we've got a sensational firework display lined up!


The day of the main Cofton Car Show, we're hoping for almost 200 of the finest American cars from the past, present and future to be on display on the show field! You can vote for your favourite in the People's Choice award.

The carnival atmosphere continues with family entertainment in the marquee, Tractor Ted, bouncy castles, tasty food and lots of fun activities!

Refuel with a pint of the finest guest local ales and ciders, and stick around for another evening of live music and entertainment!
