CruisnŽ the Columbia Car Show

CruisnŽ the Columbia Car Show

Lady's and gentlemen, boys and girls, car lovers of all ages, save the date!....Saturday June 20, 2020 will be the 11th annual Smoke Žn Steel "CruisinŽ the Columbia" show & shine, at our NEW LOCATION in down town Trail, on the Esplanade. There will be a little something there for everyone so bring the family down and enjoy the day perusing the vehicles. Show opens to the public at 10:00 AM and will run to 3:00 PM.

A long standing tradition of the West Kootenay Smoke Žn Steel show & shine is hand crafted, one of a kind trophies that are made locally by the club members themselves. It is impossible to get these anywhere else, they are as original and unique as the cars that they are awarded to. At last years show there where 40+ trophies handed out over a wide range of categories, we expect there will be as many if not more up for grabs in 2019. Trophies are handed out at 3:00 PM. This year we would like to have all of the winners stay for an extra half hour give or take after the show so our photographer has a chance to get a picture of all of the winning entries.

We would love to hear from you if you attended our event last year either as a participant with a vehicle or as a spectator, how did we do? is there anything you would like to see different for next year. Please drop us a line at   

Have a look at some of our previous car shows....

See you there!
