On 5 October 2023 the Van Isle Show & Shine/Club Annual General Meeting was held. After lengthy discussion, it was decided to dissolve the Club. Several reasons for arriving at this unfortunate decision were: age demographics of the Club members, difficulty in getting members to volunteer to hold office, and lack of volunteers to run the Show & Shine.
The Van Isle Show & Shine Club wishes to thank the City of Parksville for allowing us to use the Community Park and bring exposure to the beautiful City. Throughout the "car community" the Van Isle Show & Shine has developed a reputation "as the best Show & Shine on the Island!"
We hope there will be some group to come forward to pick up the staging and running of the Show.

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.
