Join us for German Auto Day (GAD) 2024, as it returns to the Canberra region at the picturesque location of Brad Haddin Oval (Town Park) Queanbeyan, NSW.

GAD is a one day German automotive display event held each year in the Canberra region and is a collaboration event organised by local German branded marques, Audi, BMW, Mercedes Benz, Porsche, Volkswagen and other rare marques.

2024 will see some special prizes introduced, including best display! This will not be car or model specific and there will be prizes for best dressed! Get your thinking caps on and get creative!

General Entry will be $10, of which $5 goes to charity. We will also be holding the Clubs annual Show 'n' Shine - BMWCCC Members Entry – $20.00 (entry fee goes towards trophies and event costs). NOTE: Show 'n' Shine entries close Wednesday, 18 September to ensure judges have time to prepare.

There will be plenty to do and see for the whole family - Food, coffee and activities to keep the kids entertained!

Food and drink will be available on site during the day, additionally, there are a number of options near by on Canberra Avenue.

There are also rest room facilities on site. One near the children's playground next to the oval pavilion and the other is on Lowe Street toward the police station.

What happens if the weather is bad? We'll make that call closer to the day.
