Oak Bay Collector Car Festival

Sunday, July 21 at 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Ken Agate was a legend in Oak Bay. The proprietor of the Blethering Place since 1981, he was known for his generosity, sense of community, and love of classic collector cars. He founded the Oak Bay Collector Car Festival 24 years ago to share his passion with the community.

When Ken was admitted to Victoria Hospice for end-of-life care last fall, his friends, Ron Dempsey and Tony Joe, brought photos of the event to his bedside.

“Ken wasn’t able to speak, but he was certainly expressive and emotional. It was an incredible moment really to see, as we were telling him how the event was bigger and better than ever, and how we had an amazing team and a new generation of volunteers,” Ron says.

Enjoy viewing classic collector cars – including Ken’s beloved 1938 Dodge Deluxe Touring Sedan – on Oak Bay Avenue Saturday, July 21 from 10 am to 3 pm. To honour the care Ken received, organizers will donate partial proceeds to Victoria Hospice. Read more about Ken Agate and the Oak Bay Collector Car Festival.
