Those going on Saturday depart from the Aulac Irving at 9:00 am.  Those going on Sunday can depart from Dieppe Blvd Irving at 8:30 am.  Rain or shine.

The dates are in the heart of the high tourism season in PEI. We suggest that, if you have not already booked your accommodations, you should do it soon.
The following are the details for Vettefest 2019 which will take place in PEI on Saturday and Sunday August 17th and 18th. The first day is the Island Tour and the second is the Show Day.

The Island Tour will start at 10 AM at the parking lot adjacent to Gateway Village on the PEI side of the Confederation Bridge. This is the same meeting place as in past years. We will spend the day touring rural and small-community PEI. This year will see us focusing on parts of western PEI which we have not done for a few years now.
We will be stopping for lunch around noon at the Stompin Tom Centre at 14024 Rte 14 C0B 2B0 near Tignish. After lunch we will continue the tour which should end around 3 PM or so. Our Club members will be available to help to get everyone to their hotels/motels.
The free BBQ will be held beginning at 6PM. There will be a Chinese auction after the BBQ. As in the past we would welcome any auction items from participants. The location of the BBQ/Auction is the Jack Blanchard Family Centre (which is adjacent to the Holy Redeemer Church) located at 7 Pond Street in Charlottetown. This is the same location as in 2018.
On Sunday the Show will be held at Action Car and Truck Accessories in Charlottetown. This is the same site as in 2018 and is located at the corner of the TCH (also known as Capital Drive) and the Lower Malpeque Road/North River Road. Registration is from 9 AM to Noon and the show will run from Noon until 3:00 PM. We will also have our Free Shuttle service available to take participants to and from the show site to restaurants and shopping areas.
As has been the case with other ACCC shows recently, Vettefest will not include participant voting by class this year. This will be replaced by additional prizes to be drawn for during the weekend.
There will be an after-show banquet as in past years. The banquet location this year is Samís Restaurant on the TCH in Cornwall.
