After numerous conversations and meetings with the City of Parksville, we have just this date received approval for use of the Community Park regarding holding the 2023 Van Isle Show and Shine. The Executive and Society members have made the difficult decision to cancel this year's Van Isle Show and Shine. While the final decision was difficult to make, it was decided it would be impossible for the Club to garner the necessary resources in the time remaining before the scheduled Show & Shine scheduled to be held on 6th August.
Having made this difficult decision, we are hoping to be able to reach an agreement with the City of Parksville regarding a show in 2024.
We have further made this decision to not hold the annual Cruse Night in 2023.
We are aware this decision will impact, the donations to our local children's charities, our faithful sponsors, car owners, car enthusiasts, and local business owners who benefit from the thousands of people who come to the City of Parksville for this weekend. Rest assured, the final decision was not made in haste, but was made after much discussion.

The Van Isle Show and Shine is recognized as one of the top Show and Shine events held annually on Vancouver Island with over 5,000 participants and spectators. Every year over 100 volunteers, community members and staff come together to make this family event an ongoing success. With a number of sponsors leading the way, this event is a community fundraiser for Shriners Hospital for Children and local Children’s Charities. All net proceeds raised from this event go toward “Helping the Kids”. In 2019, our event raised over $15,000 to assist us in our mission. We could not do any of this without all of you and we are truly grateful.
