Many thanks to all of you that came out!

I was another wonderful day!  There were tons of people, lots of vendors and the weather was GREAT!

We were glad to see everyone enjoying themselves and appreciating the history and the artistry behind the many vintage bikes, models and styles on display.

You can view the Dandyhorse blog about the show here as well as photos from CBN’s Facebook page.

 

Please join us as we celebrate our third annual Toronto Vintage Bicycle Show Sunday July 27th from 10am -5pm in Trinity Bellwoods Park!

This is a shine and show event. So, if you have a vintage classic that’s been sitting in your garage or basement for the last little while, this is your chance to shine it up and show it off to the world!

Vendor space is available for merchants; $50 for retail vendors, $25 for individuals.

Vendor space can be purchased here using Eventbrite.

Otherwise, this is a FREE event.

Parking is available one block south on Walnut Avenue.

So, save the date and be prepared for another fun Sunday afternoon in the park!
