Volvo Club of BC Upcoming Events

Upcoming Club Events

The Volvo Club of BC hosts a number of annual events. In mid June, members participate in a Spring weekend drive through some destination through southern BC. A large contingent on Vancouver Island hosts several drive or display events through the summer months. The Cate's Park Picnic is our annual end-of-the-summer event and, thanks to our organizing committee, normally features warm sunny weather. Our annual club technical session is normally held each fall. Technical topics vary, but are always interesting and informative. Details about previous technical sessions can be found on our technical index page.

2020 EVENTS: All the club events we would normally hold in the spring and summer are cancelled for 2020. The Cates Park Picnic and AGM will tentatively stay on the events list and we will decide at the time of the September newsletter whether Cates can go ahead or not.
