Visitors will have the opportunity to view antique and classic cars and vintage motorcycles brought by car and motorcycle enthusiasts from across Ontario which will be on display throughout the historic village. Additionally, the Antique Bicycle Collectors of Ontario will be showcasing their extensive display of antique and rare bicycles in and around the Peterborough County Agricultural Heritage Building (PCAHB) in a nod to alternative modes of transportation.

Participant registration runs from 8 am to 12 noon with a $10 registration fee that includes admission into the Village. The first 200 vehicles to enter will receive a complimentary dash plaque as a souvenir of their participation. Over 50 trophies will be awarded including the coveted People’s Choice and Lang’s Choice. Visitors will enjoy fantastic music from the 50s to the 80s by DJ Del while they admire the vehicles and cast their vote for their favourite.

Take a leisurely stroll through the historic village or hop on board a free horse-drawn wagon ride. Inside the Village, learn more about how transportation has changed over the years and the roles that the various trade’s people played in the creation of transportation methods. While you are at the Milburn House, try a sample of Scottish Oak Cakes, an easy travelling food. Discover the challenges of the journey from Britain to the new land at the Fife Cabin and the experience of waiting for the stagecoach in the Hotel. In the Transportation Barn you will see 19th-century modes of transportation such as sleighs, wagons and milk carts.

See demonstrations on the Jacquard loom, the Grandmother of modern computing in the Jacquard Loom Interpretive Centre. Stop at the Keene Hotel for a delicious treat and cold refreshment and the Cheese Factory for fresh Empire Cheese curds and bread. Enjoy some time on the Village Green as you listen to music performed by the Lang Traditional Music Club and check out the rug hooking demonstrations by members of the Northumberland Rug Hookers. Watch as Helen and her border collie Mirk demonstrate the centuries old skill of moving sheep using a herding dog in the pasture.
