Chanters Carnival Classics, now in its ninth year, opens at 11am, and admission is free to exhibitors and the public.

Any vehicles of interest can be shown, and late entries are accepted on the day, with trophies awarded later. Refreshments are available.

In 2018 the Ivor Cobbledick trophy for best motorbike was won by Justin Llewellyn with his 1961 Triumph Metisse, the Mike Scanes trophy for best commercial vehicle was won by Ian Holder with his 1971 Bedford pickup and the carnival trophy for best car was won by Mr M. Lane with his 1965 Ford Cortina GT.

The show is held in conjunction with the family fun day and strongman competition. Those events take place on the same day on the Land of Canaan, to raise money towards the Tar Barrels. The strongman competition begins at 10am and the family fun day starts at noon.
