St. Vincent’s Hospice is bringing its hugely popular CarFest into the town centre once again on Saturday 14th August and a fun day out for all the family is guaranteed!

There will be classic, vintage and specialist custom cars on show, as well as muscle cars and supercars.

Normally held in June, the event was held virtually last year due to COVID but visitors can instead this year look forward to a scaled back in-person event in August.

The event is organised by Bill’s Automotive Detailing and is sponsored by Paisley First, in aid of St. Vincent’s Hospice.
The cars will be on show at locations including High Street, County Square and Gilmour Street from 10.30am until 4 pm on Saturday 14th August.

Chair of Paisley First, Colette Cardosi, said: “We’re thrilled to be supporting the Hospice and the CarFest team in bringing this great event to Paisley town centre once again.

“It’s a firm favourite in our calendar of events and it’s great to see so many people heading back into the town centre to support our events and our town centre businesses.

“It will also be the last weekend of our summer adventure, BRICKLIVE’S Animal Paradise, so there really will be something for all the family, Paisley is the place to be this summer!”

Kirsteen Murray, Chief Executive of St. Vincent’s Hospice, said: “Every year the St.Vincent’s Hospice has to raise around half of its running costs from its own fundraising and COVID has made face-to-face fundraising very difficult.

“We’re delighted therefore that CarFest will return this year. Not only is CarFest a great day out for families in Renfrewshire, but it raises much needed funds for the hospice.

“We are enormously grateful for the ongoing support of the sponsors who invest both their money and time to make CarFest such a successful event.

Willie Chrystal of Bill’s Automotive Detailing, who is organising the event, said: “CarFest has been fantastically received by both the car owners and the public alike with vehicles of all shapes, sizes and years in the last few years so it’s great to be able to bring the event back to Paisley town centre again this year.

“The work that the hospice provides for the people of Renfrewshire is exceptional so what better way for a petrol head to have fun and also help raise some money.
