Today The Car Spotter will be talking about the Emirates Classic Car Festival that begins tomorrow on March 19th at 3pm and continues until March 22nd at 10pm. If you are in Dubai I would highly recommend a visit as it looks to be a great event showcasing a wide range of classic cars, vehicles and motorcycles. The event is held in downtown Dubai, near to the Burj Khalifa.
You can visit the official Emirates Classic Car Festival website and view previous year’s galleries here.

This is the 7th edition of the wonderful Emirates Classic Car Festival and is set to include over 250 classic cars, motorcycles and trucks. Some of the most exclusive vehicles from around the world will be on display in Dubai.
Motors from as early as the 1920s will be on display and it is the largest Emirates Classic Car Festival to date. Renowned manufacturers including Ferrari, Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin, Corvette and Jaguar amongst others will be present.
The vehicles will be featured at a specially designed pavilion along Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard. The opening ceremony is on March 19 at 2pm.
The Emirates Classic Car Festival is held in collaboration with the UAE Ministry of Culture, Youth, & Community Development.
Classic cars will be displayed from private collections across the world and UAE. The vehicles will be evaluated by a panel of judges, including prizes based on areas such as upkeep, value, originality, uniqueness, finishes and visual aesthetics.
The categories include: The UAE Award, The Dubai Award, The Emaar Award, Classic Truck Award, Pre-World War II Award, Heritage Car Award, Modern Classic Award, American Car Award, The Public’s Choice Award, Parade Car Award, Club Merit Award, Classic Motorcycle Award, Chevrolet Centennial Award, Blancpain Award, FIVA Award, among others. The public will also have the opportunity to vote for their classic car of choice through a popular vote. The winners will be honoured at the closing ceremony on March 21, 4pm.
The Emirates Classic Car Festival is open for free to the public, and is one of the headlining events held in Downtown Dubai, a thriving lifestyle destination, described as ‘The Centre of Now.’
