Billed as the Vegreville “Father's Day” event, this show and shine meet attracts a big and enthusiast crowd – from near and far -- to view all things motorized at the local fair grounds. In case you don't know where Vegreville is, it's a small Alberta town located on Highway 16A approximately 100 km east of Edmonton.

Here's a list of the kind of units on display:

  • model trains
  • antique tractors
  • vintage motorcycles
  • antique snowmobiles
  • rat rods
  • bone wagons
  • big rig semis
  • mini-market trade show
  • Lawn Mower Races
  • Power Wheels Derby
  • Demolition Derby

Calvin Robinson and his vintage snowmobile buddies from the Alberta Relic Riders put on a great display of antique, vintage and classic snowmobiles. Calvin was kind enough to share a photo of his old sled on display at Vegreville last weekend.  There were everything from Alouettes to Zany classic race sleds on display. 

So if you missed this year's event at Vegreville, mark your calendar for next year, now! 

We asked Calvin about his favourite sled at the show, he said, "I have to say, I really like my 1970 Sno-Jet Super Sport and lots of people voted it the people's choice." We tend to agree — great looking '70 Sno-Jet!

Way to go, Calvin and all the Relic Riders who participated in the show.
