OTTAWA, June 13, 2022 – What makes viewing antique cars in Ottawa an infinitely better experience? Checking them out at an incredible vintage estate! Spend Father’s Day exploring antique cars at the nearly 200-year-old Billings Estate National Historic Site, located at 2100 Cabot Street.

Perfect for any car fanatic, the show will feature a variety of antique cars and their owners who will be available to chat and tell stories of their car. The show will run from 10 am to 3 pm on Sunday, June 19. Admission costs $19.25 per family, $12 per pair, or $7.25 per person and can be purchased onsite. Advanced registrations are not needed for this event.

There will be fun for the whole family this Father’s Day! After learning all about the antique cars, be sure to cast your vote for the fan favourite car. Families can also participate in an interactive scavenger hunt or enjoy a fresh bite to eat from the barbeque.

Visitors should also be sure to explore all the museum has to offer, including guided transit-themed tours of the grounds and self-guided explorations of museum exhibitions which tell stories of the estate and the community’s evolution over more than 150 years, beginning in 1812 when the Billings family settled on the Rideau River.
