Champagne British Car Festival Set for June 5th

BLOOMINGTON, IL – The Illinois Flatland British Car Club IFLBCC.club has announced the 30th Champagne British Car Festival All-British Car Show to be held on Saturday, June 5, from 10:00am to 3:00pm, at the historic David Davis Mansion, Bloomington, IL (daviddavismansion.org). Admission to the car show is free and open to the public. Donations to the Mansion are encouraged.

The Champagne British Car Festival’s (CBCF) All-British Car Show is an annual charitable event which is open to any and all British cars and motorcycles.  This year, the show organizers hope for a record setting number of cars and bikes to be on display.

This is a wonderful opportunity to view classic British cars representing over 60 years of British motoring history. Come join classic and modern British cars and their owners for a day of unparalleled British automotive history. See great British cars including MG, Morgan, Mini, Austin-Healy, Rolls-Royce, Jaguar, Triumph and more.

Each year, the festival committee chooses a designated charity that benefits from the fund-raising efforts of the car show. For this year’s event, the designated charity is the Midwest Food Bank (2031 Warehouse Rd, Normal).

Come join us for great family fun. We are sure you will have a wonderful experience and a fun-filled Saturday.  Check out the beautiful vehicles, chat with the owners, stroll the grounds, visit the Mansion and grab a bite at the on-site food truck.

For 2021, the CBCF has received significant support from the Bloomington-Normal Area Convention and Visitors Bureau and the David Davis Mansion State Historic Site.

The David Davis Mansion State Historic Site (1000 Monroe Drive in Bloomington) was built in 1872 by David Davis, a political ally of Abraham Lincoln and a U.S. Supreme Court Justice. All entrance donations will benefit the David Davis Mansion Foundation.

The site is operated by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. IDNR protects the state’s historic resources, which contribute to education, culture and the economy. IDNR sites include ancient burial grounds, forts and buildings erected by settlers, and homes connected to famous Illinoisans.

CBCF 2021 – COME JOIN THE FUN! JUNE 5, 2021

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!
