Rev-up your engines, the biggest and best American & Classic Car Show is back for a fifth lap of the track in 2018!

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!

You're welcome to join us for live music in the marquee from the wicked Western Rock from 9pm! This terrific trio will be bringing you the best in Rock 'n' Roll, Country and Western, and Rockabilly music!



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!

9am - Meet us on the Showfield to fuel the tank with bacon rolls and coffee.

10am - If you're taking part in the cruise, meet us at the Showfield and get your place in the fleet.

11am - Departure from Cofton as we 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!

2.30pm - We anticipate the cars to return around this time and Saturday afternoon will kick off 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 the Dog's Trust.

There'll be some finger lickin-ly delicious BBQ food from 2.00pm and plenty of refreshing beverages on hand should you wish to keep your tanks topped up!

9pm - We hope you're ready for a little jail house rockin', our favourite Elvis impersonator, Adam Carter, will be on stage in the marquee.

Calling all hot rods and harlots! To help get you in the swing of things, Cofton is offering a £50 voucher to the best dressed guy and gal in 50's dress!

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


SUNDAY - 11am - 4pm

Don't blow your gaskets on day 1 though - Sunday will see the Cofton Car Show, with the public choosing the winners!

The carnival atmosphere will be complete - with bouncy castles, tasty food marquee's (including BBQ), and a whole host of fabulous fun activities taking place!

We'll also be joined by legendary family entertainer Paul Zee!
