British Field Day at Liberty Park
Saturday June 9th 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
British Field Day will be held at Liberty Park again this year. It is time for all British car and motorcycle
enthusiasts to get their rigs out of the garage, clean them up and get them running as well as can be expected.
All British cars and bikes in any condition from 100- point restorations to works in progress or an old daily beater
are welcome. The more the merrier! All the British car/bike clubs are participating. Don't let those other marques
make your club look like slackers. Call your fellow club members and get them to the event!
For the brave of heart, we will have the road course set up again this year on a closed access road inside the park. It promises to be as noisy and challenging as previous years!
During the event there will be music, shop talk, bench-racing, catching up with old friends, drawings for raffle prizes and more. Liberty Park has many amenities. There is a remodeled food concession stand, one of the largest and best playgrounds in the city, the Tracy Aviary and a small amusement park with a Ferris wheel and merry-go-round. Even if your family doesn't share your passion for LBCs (little British cars), there will be plenty for them to do while you are getting your fix!
Proceeds from this year's event will be donated to The Food Pantry of Saint Paul's Episcopal Church. In recent years we have raised enough money to pay for 80% of the Pantry's yearly cash budget! The Pantry is providing volunteers to assist with the event so the organizers can have more time for some fun, too!
Liberty Park is located between 500 East & 700 East and 900 South & 1300 South. The BFD event will be held in the northeast quadrant of the park. Enter off 1300 South and drive east and north about a quarter of the way around the park. You will see the event on the left.
Please help support Saint Paul's food pantry by bringing your cars and bikes out to join in the fun. Registration starts at 8:00 AM and we hope to have most bikes and cars in place by 9:00. The registration fee is $10 per bike or car. A $5 donation is requested per adult. Kids 12 and under are free.
