“Although we are disappointed to learn that Oshawa will not be home to Autofest in 2024, we thank the Motor City Car Club and wish them a successful 2024 event at this year’s location in Durham Region,” said a city statement.
It pointed out that Oshawa has been proud to be the host city of Autofest Nationals for 30 years. “Recognizing this as one of our signature community events, the City of Oshawa has made significant contributions to the growth and success of this annual car show with more than $270,000 of in-kind support provided since 2014.”
