Mintaro Car & Bike Show

Gearing up for its third consecutive year, the Mintaro Car and Bike Show is a blend of cars, bikes, live music and community spirit. The town will transform into a car and bike enthusiasts’ haven with up to 75 vehicles ranging from Hot Rods and Classic Cars to Cool Utes and roaring Harley-Davidsons on display for locals and visitors to admire.

The Mintaro Car and Bike Show has been developed as a community event by local resident Gary Prior (known as Putty), an automotive enthusiast with a generous heart who previously developed a Toy Run while living in the Northern Territory. It is supported by the Mintaro Progress Association.

A family-friendly event it’s the perfect day out. Visitors can grab themselves an egg and bacon brekky by members of the local bowls club, visit the street market starting at 9.30 am and be entertained by Blues performers Paul and Andy from 11.00 am, followed by Max Crighton.

The Magpie and Stump Hotel will serve as a hub for the festivities, with their central location, outside seated area, and country charm, creating the perfect atmosphere for the ideal Clare Valley experience along with Reilly’s Cellar door and Restaurant.

Nine trophies are up for grabs, including Best Car, Best Bike, Best Ute, and Best Hot Rod, as well as People’s Choice for each category. Trophies will be presented at 3.30 pm. See the details below to enter your car or bike.

Generously sponsored by the Mintaro Progress Association Inc., Clare and Gilbert Valleys Council, Magpie and Stump Hotel, Reillys Wines and Mintaro Wines, the event draws a broad spectrum of support. Proceeds from the show will benefit Mintaro CFS, Mintaro Progress Association Inc., Clare Lions Club, and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of SA & NT.
