The Wallingford Vehicle Rally and Parade returns on Sunday May 11th 2014 to celebrate its tenth year of raising money and awareness for local charities. This relaxed, friendly and very informal event is organised by a small group of volunteers who have made this show one of the "must see" events on the Wallingford calendar.

The event will kick off at 11am with a parade of 250 vehicles through the picturesque Oxfordshire town of Wallingford, snaking around the streets, through the Market Place and culminating in a static show at the Kinecroft in the centre of town. Throughout the day there are displays and side stalls hosted by local suppliers and charities, helping raise funds for their worthy causes. Local food traders will also be there throughout the day so you can sample the tasty delights from local suppliers.

There is a new principal charity for 2014 in the form of Footsteps, who are based just up the road in Dorchester and provide much needed intensive rehabilitation programmes for children and young adults with neurological disorders. Children and their families travel from all over the country to the centre and their work has been providing child friendly intensive therapy there for over a decade. You can find more information on their website at footstepscentre.com

The parade itself is quite some spectacle as a convoy of vehicles is surrounded by cheering spectators throughout the town, including some wonderful live music from the Wallingford School Bigg Band who will be performing underneath the Town Hall as the parade passes by. The vehicles themselves aren't limited in anyway, so you can see a sixties scooter alongside a modern supercar, a standard Model T ford parked up next to an American muscle car from the 1970's. All cars, bikes, trucks and scooters are welcome, the weirder the better, and prices will be given out on the day to the furthest travelled, the mayors choices and the Vehicle of The Show.

Alongside viewing the parade, you can also make a donation and take a trip out in a supercar. The Sporting Bears organization will be back once more with their amazing collection of cars, both modern and classic, to take you out for a drive in the stunning local countryside.

We have several car clubs booked already including the Porsche Cars GB Owners Club, TR Register, CSMA to name but a few. Wallingford Emergency Services will be putting on their display and Cholsey Silver Band will also be performing throughout the day.

Pre-registration is now closed for the parade and static show. However you can still take place in the parade on the day and afterwards you will be directed to our overflow car park on St George’s Road. More details on the registration page.
