Anyone in the Midwest interested in attending this one-day event? I plan on driving over for the day. It is a great venue!


The Champagne British Car Festival (CBCF) has been an annual event held the first weekend after Memorial Day since 1991. Our festival has been a three-day event culminating with a car show at the David Davis Mansion in Bloomington, IL and we have enjoyed excellent attendance from the public as well as car owners. Of course, in 2020, we cancelled the festival due to COVID-19.
We are resurrecting CBCF for 2021 in a limited fashion, consisting of a one-day outdoor car show, Saturday, June 5 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
We have been in touch with officials at David Davis Mansion and they have indicated, as a State of Illinois property, they will be open and supportive of the event. This will be strictly an open-air event and proper COVID precautions will be encouraged.
Here are a few notable changes for this year only:
No classes, judging, or awards
No formal registration No registration fee (although donations for expenses and charity will be welcomed) No welcome bags or door prizes
No printed program/brochure
No indoor activity (although David Davis Mansion will be open to groups of 10 or fewer)
BUT, You CAN expect to find our typical field of beautiful British cars, friends and the public!
Parking will be somewhat "park as you can" although we would hope the MGs, Triumphs, Healeys, Jags, etc. will park as a group although not necessarily by class, model or year.
Please connect with the CBCF and IFLBCC sites and Facebook to see up-to-date information.
Looking forward to seeing you at CBCF 2021!
