The Bloor-Yorkville Business Improvement Area (BY BIA) is proud to present the 12th annual Yorkville Exotic Car Show (YECS). After two years of performing virtually, YECS will return to Bloor Street this Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19th from 12 pm – 5 pm. Expect a red-carpet display of luxury vehicles on Bloor Street (from Avenue Road to Bay Street) in support of Melanoma Canada (MC), formerly Melanoma Network of Canada (MNC). This year, the event will feature classic and exotic cars, including Corvette, Jaguar, Porsche, Aston Martin, and more.

“We’re thrilled to be rolling out the red carpet again this year on Bloor Street and are proud to host Canada’s largest luxury car show for 12 years now while raising funds for cancer research,” says Briar de Lange, the Executive Director of the Bloor-Yorkville BIA.

Nine corrals of cars will be on display across Bloor Street, St.Thomas, and Bellair, with highlights of over 100 classic, rare and exotic cars. Toronto-based graffiti artist, large-scale muralist, and professional painter Poser will be at the event creating a live art installation and auctioning the pieces off on Sunday to raise funds for Melanoma Canada.

“Through our partnership with the Bloor-Yorkville BIA, we’ve raised over $420,000 to date for cancer research,” says Phil Downe, Founder and Chairman of the Yorkville Exotic Car Show. “I’m genuinely proud to look back and notice that the initiative we started 12 years ago is still being successful and, most importantly, raising money for charity.”

The highly anticipated event is open to the public and free of charge. Both Bloor-Yorkville and Melanoma Canada will have tents set up on Bloor street to provide the visitors with more information about the event, and melanoma research, and to take donations. Visitors are also encouraged to stop by the Bloor-Yorkville tent for a chance to win great prizes.

 

“Thank you to the Yorkville Exotic Car Show for its incredible support; helping to increase Canadians’ awareness of melanoma and skin cancers, the majority of which are preventable cancers with incidence rates on the rise” says Falyn Katz, Executive Director of Melanoma Canada. “Through education, awareness programs and patient support services, we provide Canadians with quality information to save and improve the lives of those living with melanoma and skin cancer.”

Everyone can participate in the show by sponsoring an exotic car on display.
