Okotoks

Sunday August 18th, 10am to 4pm

The George is proud to be a major sponsor of the Okotoks Show & Shine!

“The Olde Towne Okotoks Show & Shine was established in 2009 and continues to be one of the most popular events in Okotoks. With over 10,000 spectators filling the streets of Olde Towne Okotoks each summer to view more than 500 unique cars, trucks and motorcycles this event can’t be missed.

This event is all about fun! We focus on fun for car enthusiasts, fun for the many spectators, and fun for the volunteers both young and old. Walking through the streets on event day one can hear the comments of spectators marveling over the many spectacular entries in the show reminiscing the day they may have owned one of these rare entries. Many of the young onlookers gain a new appreciation of the value and love many people have for the many vehicles on display.”
