Georgian College Auto Show to showcase exotic cars, electric vehicles, Porsche Track Experience

Don’t miss out this year on Canada’s largest outdoor, student-run new car auto show at Georgian’s Barrie Campus June 7 to 9.

The annual Georgian College Auto Show is organized by students enrolled in programs in the Automotive Business School of Canada under the leadership of five dedicated student directors who manage all show tasks, including marketing, sponsorship, recruitment, event logistics, and more.

This year’s theme is Redline Revolution to showcase how far the automotive industry has come and the new technology it has to offer, while still celebrating the exciting history of gas engines.

With over 18 car brands coming to show off their newest models, live music, Kids Zone, a Batmobile, and an exotic car experience with more than 50 supercars, there are attractions and activities available for everyone.
