Toronto Motorama Car Show 2020

"SUNDAY CANCELLED AT TORONTO MOTORAMA: TORONTO, ON // MARCH 14, 2020 • After consultation with The International Centre and in consideration of the direction announced by Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health to cancel events and gatherings exceeding 250 people, the promoters of the Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo have determined that it’s not possible to open on Sunday, March 15, 2020."

It's time for another edition of the Motorama Custom Car and Motorsports Expo March 13-15 at the International Centre. The cars and booths were setup on Thursday and the show opens Friday at 10am. This could be one of the last events of the year that will still run as the Corona Virus sweeps the world, but for now the Toronto Public Health Service says that "at this time the virus is not circulating locally". Motorama is taking extra precautions and asks that you maintain social distance, keep washing your hands and stay home if you are sick. It is also a good time to escape from the massive lineups in grocery stores as people fight over toilet paper and bleach, plus parking is free.

Show hours: FRIDAY, MARCH 13: 10 A.M. TO 9 P.M, SATURDAY, MARCH 14: 10 A.M. TO 8 P.M. and SUNDAY, MARCH 15: 10 A.M. TO 5 P.M.

Greg MacPherson of Motorama and Inside Track notes that "as you tour the over 300,000 square feet of this year's show, you'll be struck by the incredible quality, quantity and diversity of the amazing vehicles. Filling five huge halls, the show literally has something for everyone who loves cars and motorsports."

On Friday the Pinty's main stage in Hall 2 will feature Ron Gibbs (3:30 to 4:30pm), DJ Swankenstein (4:45 to 6:15pm) and the Motorama Kick-off Party (6:30 to 9:00pm) will have Mark Malibu and the Wasagas on stage at 7:00pm.

"RON GIBBS: One of Canada’s top automotive and motorsports artists, Burlington, Ontario’s Ron Gibbs will be on the stage several times during Motorama. For this session, he’ll be working on a painting of Motorama’s featured guest Chip Foose, which he’ll complete at his booth, adjacent to the Pinty’s Stage, by the time of the Special Car Awards presentations on Sunday at 3 p.m. The painting will be auctioned off for charity."

"DJ SWANKENSTEIN: Prior to the Motorama Kick-Off Party, later in the afternoon, DJ Swankenstein will be on the Pinty’s Stage, spinning records and getting everyone in the mood for a great night. For most of the show, this talented DJ – who says his musical choices are fueled by the smell of jalopy exhaust, axle grease, tire rubber, tattoo ink, pomade and pinup girl hairspray – will be in the Mayhem ‘rockabilly’ room. But he’s doing a Friday set on the Pinty’s Stage to get things hopping."

"MOTORAMA KICK-OFF PARTY: Following the introduction of the show’s celebrity guests, Mark Malibu and The Wasagas will take to the Pinty’s Stage as part of the Motorama Kick-Off Party for car owners, show sponsors and Motorama’s celebrity guests. The general public is welcome to enjoy the festivities, as well. This year marks the first time this party has taken place on the show floor, instead of in a private setting. Mark Malibu and The Wasagas will get people in the mood with their ‘surf punk’ sounds. Watch for the dancing monkey!"

There is going to be entertainment, celebrity guests, race cars, modified cars, monster trucks, car clubs, motor mayhem, hot rods and custom cars at the 6th annual show. Everthing but Chip Fooze from the series Overhaulin' who had to cancel his celebrity appearances.
