As well as treats for motor enthusiasts, there will be plenty of family-friendly fun with fairground rides, children’s entertainment, live music, stalls, tombola and a prize raffle!

This is the fifth year of St. Vincent’s CarFest and its second visit to the town centre with all funds raised on the day supporting St. Vincent’s Hospice in Howwood
The event is organised by MaxSafe and sponsored by Paisley First.

The cars will be on show at locations including Abbey Close, County Square, The Cenotaph, High Street and Johnston Street from 10 am until 4 pm on 16th June.

Paisley First Chairman, Graeme McGowan, said: “We’re thrilled to be supporting the Hospice and the CarFest team in bringing this great event to Paisley town centre for a second year.

“The sun shone last year and we’re hoping for the same again this June. It was a great day out for all the family and all the local businesses joined in the fun too, all in aid of such a worthy cause.”

Kate Lennon, Chief Executive of St. Vincent’s Hospice, said: “CarFest is one of the absolute highlights of our calendar, and we are always absolutely blown away by the amount of work and passion that people put in to making it happen.

“This year we are celebrating our 30th Anniversary since first opening our doors in 1988. Since then we have provided palliative and end of life care to thousands of individuals and families from all across the Renfrewshire Community.

“This has only been possible thanks to events like CarFest and the amazing support we continue to receive from so many generous people throughout Renfrewshire and beyond.”
Willie Chrystal of MaxSafe Solutions said: “Last year was the first time the event was held in Paisley town centre, after three years of being held in the hospice grounds, and it was great to see so many people in the town centre supporting it.

“It has been fantastically received by both the car owners and the public alike with vehicles of all shapes, sizes and years.
