The Cayman Charity Auto Show is revving up and ready to speed off on Monday, May 16, 2022, for the Discovery Day long weekend as an official Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebratory event in the Cayman Islands.

Auto enthusiasts and families alike will be able to view classic vintage cars, the latest electric supercars, trucks, motorcycles, planes, boats, service vehicles and more on display on Cayman’s gorgeous waterfront in George Town. An impressive sprawl of local and international vehicles will be on display from the intersection of Mary Street and North Church Street through Fort Street and across to Cardinal Avenue. 

Entrance is free to the public, but as this is a charitable event, organizers will be collecting donations which will enter spectators in a door prize draw and the ability to cast a vote for ‘Best In Show’. In addition, 100% of the vehicle participation fee will be donated to the following charitable organizations: R3 Cayman Foundation, Humane Society, Cayman Community Farms, Plastic Free Cayman, 100 Men who Care. Those who make significant donations to the organizations will also have access to the VIP in a shaded waterfront area next to Sandbar.

Last year the event raised over CI$65,000 for Resilience Cayman through the Charity Auto Show event hosted by Island Air. This year as part of a match programme through R3, donations made by the Cayman Auto Show to R3 will be matched by the Kenneth B. Dart Foundation.

Event organizer Douglas Cameron (J.R.), said, “this event is a great opportunity to bring out the whole family and create memories for this once in a lifetime Queen’s Platinum Jubilee event.” He went on to say “the event celebrates our islands and the evolution of the automobile all while raising money and awareness for projects and non-profit organizations in our community.”

With exciting show features such as a Sound Off Competition and the Best in Show Contest (as voted by spectators). The Cayman Auto Show is sponsored, judged and organized by Caribbean Kitchen, who are providing custom collectable trophies for Super Car Class (1st, 2nd and 3rd place), Street/Stock (1st, 2nd and 3rd place), Modified Class (1st, 2nd and 3rd place) and Classic Car Class (1st, 2nd and 3rd place).

If you have a vehicle that you would like to display, the Cayman Auto Show is still accepting entries up until May 13, 2022. VIP Covered Car entries are CI$200, street-side car entries are CI$50, and vendors who wish to be featured in the Vendor Village section have a CI$200 participation fee.
