Autumn In the Mountains British Car Show

The British Car Club of Western North Carolina presents
Autumn in the Mountains
A British & European Car & Motorcycle Show

The British Car Club of Western North Carolina invites you to join us at the 19th annual “Autumn in the Mountains – British & European Automobile & Motorcycle Show” at the Asheville Outlets on Saturday, October 13, 2018.  Autumn in the Mountains features a variety of classic, exotic and racing European cars and bikes from the 1930’s to today’s modern examples.  As the name suggests, “Autumn in the Mountains” of Western North Carolina typically means comfortable fall weather and unmatched autumn colors.  Centrally located, the Asheville Outlets (I-26 and I-40) provides something for everyone and there’s so much to see and do within the surrounding area, so bring your British or European car or motorcycle, the entire family, and enjoy Western North Carolina hospitality!  In addition to the car show, the weekend’s events include live music, silent auctions, great food, various raffles and drawings, product exhibits, a 50-50 drawing, and the car and motorcycle show awards presentation.  Exhibiting participants will each receive a “Goodie Bag” with gifts and discount coupons to all of the 50+ stores at the Asheville Outlets!  And, the best part of being a part of this great show is that all proceeds from “Autumn in the Mountains” benefits local Buncombe and Henderson County charities. 

Thanks to the continuing growth of our event, the on-going support of our great sponsors, and the British car community, BCCWNC has surpassed $30,000 in donations to local charities. Once again this year, Meals on Wheels in Henderson and Buncombe Counties will each receive a donation from the proceeds of Autumn In The Mountains. The ability of our club to continue to support these worthy organizations is made possible only by your participation and enthusiasm for sharing the fun of owning, driving and showing your British car or motorcycle.

Western North Carolina has become one of America’s favorite vacation destinations. People from all over the US, and overseas too, come to this region to enjoy our gentle year-round climate, the beautiful scenery, a rich culture and history, abundant recreational facilities and the friendliest people on earth! For those wanting to drive the area, the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway, the “Gateway to the Smoky Mountains,” winds all through the mountains. It is a most spectacular way to enjoy your British car and to get a scenic overview of the region or to make your way to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Cherokee Casino or Mt. Mitchell. Not to be missed are DuPont State Forest and Pisgah National Forest, with a combined 510,000-plus acres, both with spectacular water falls, hiking trails, picnic areas, fishing streams, camping sites and twisty, mountain roads. Many other roads throughout the region with their own “mountain magic” also await exploration. Bring your British car or “Other European Car” or motorcycle to this beautiful area and get a taste of high country hospitality. You’ll understand that a weekend in the North Carolina mountains is just not enough time here, so plan to extend your visit or make plans to come back soon. BCCWNC members are always glad to welcome British car enthusiasts to the area any time of the year.
