Queen City Cruise

Schedule of Events

Trophy Winners

Join Us Sept 11th & 12th for our 2020 Show!

The Queen City Cruise has continued to grow since the first cruise in 2003. Car collectors from far and wide find the appeal to show off their cars in the Heritage City. Nelson offers big city cosmopolitan dining, unique and original shopping experiences and comfortable lodging all on our beautiful setting of Kootenay Lake.

The Cruise starts out annually on the first weekend in September after Labour Day. Pre-registration with a get together at the Nelson Chamber of Commerce (Historic CPR Station) at the foot of Baker Street starts Friday at 1 o'clock along with live entertainment.  At 6:00 pm cars will cruise through downtown and eventually make there way towards Nelson's orange bridge in Fairview.  The Nelson Road Kings and the Nelson Arts Council will partner together to celebrate in style by having a free street dance in the Hall Street Plaza.  Be sure to show up with your entire family in 50's outfits to celebrate the car show's 18th Anniversary and the end of Art Walk.

Saturday morning begins our Show and Shine on historic Baker Street in the downtown heart of Nelson B.C.  Live entertainment in partnership with the Nelson and District Arts Council is being planned for the day. Trophy presentations are at approximately 3:30 pm followed by a poker run along the beautiful North Shore later on in the afternoon. 

Most of our attendees thus far hail from Washington, Idaho, Southern British Columbia and Southern Alberta.
