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 16, 2018 will be the 10th annual Smoke Žn Steel "CruisinŽ the Columbia" show & shine, once again we will be located in Gyro Park in down town Trail. 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.

In 2018 returning again for a 4th  time following the car show there will be a dance held at the Trail Memorial Center gymnasium. This dance is open to the general public, there will be live music provided by Gary Stewart & the Flashbacks, the music will span from the 50's and up. Tickets are $20, music starts at 8:00 pm, cash bar on site (sorry no minors) tickets include a midnight snack.

Space is limited so get your tickets early you won't want to miss this, ticket  pre-sales will begin soon for more information contact Donny Steep at 250-367-6503. For piece of mind the West Kootenay Smoke N' Steele car club will provide a dedicated parking area that will be patrolled by contracted security guards. Safe ride home will be provided by AM Ford.

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 2018. 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!
