Reminder: Swedish Car Day – this weekend!

Swedish Car Day 2011 is coming up very soon and once again, I can highly recommend the gathering for anyone within travelling distance of Boston. I wish I could be there myself.

I attended Swedish Car Day in 2010 and I can tell you it’s one of the best events I’ve had the good fortune to be at. Boston is just a brilliant city and the work that Village Auto Group put into this event is amazing. Just check out the setting, below, for starters!

This has been added to the Inside Saab events page.


When: 28 August 2011
Where: Larz Anderson Auto Museum, Brookline, Massachusetts, USA

What: Sponsored by Charles River Saab, and its sister stores Boston Volvo Village and Volvo Village of Norwell, Swedish Car Day brings together Saab and Volvo owners together every year on the lawns of the gracious Larz Anderson Auto Museum. The event will feature over two hundred cars displayed on the lawn, and we can reliably expect that two-thirds will be Saabs. There will be cars of every vintage, some pristine, some well seasoned, and a number of modified examples as well. There will be a raffle, awards for displayed cars as chosen by the attendees, a parts tent, specialty vendors, guest speakers and for the first time, live music! Don’t forget to tour the museum’s collection!

As a warm-up for Swedish Car Day, on 27 August 2011 we will see the return of the Swedish Car Day Rally. This will be a scavenger rally, and the theme will be Greater Boston Parks and Gardens. The rally will finish at Charles River Saab and we will have an early evening barbecue and gathering for all Swedish Car Day enthusiasts to catch up with old friends and get geared up for the main event.

  1. Not looking good at the moment I’m afraid. Weather forecast is pretty bleak over the weekend (Hurricane Irene is working up the east-coast now) which could put a serious damper on all of this weekends festivities. Fingers crossed Irene changes her mind/course.
