Wilson Niblett has always enjoyed the Corvette hobby and the wonderful people involved in the appreciation of the marque.  17 years ago they created the Hillfest Corvette Show with their sposored Corvette Club, the Corvette Club of Ontario.  The Corvette Club of Ontario has been active since 1962 and have a very wonderful diverse group of members.  Since the CCO are no longer involved with us, we embarked on the endeavor to keep this wonderful Corvette Show flourishing.

Over the years, the Hillfest Corvette Show has become the “kick-off” to the Corvette Show season each year.  It is well attended and supported by all members of the Corvette hobby including the Corvette Club of Ontario, Corvettes of Durham, Corvettes of Brampton, Upper Canada Corvette Club, Corvettes of Peterborough, NCRS Ontario, Golden Triangle Corvette Club, Vintage Vettes, Wasaga Beach Corvette Club, Pine Ridge Corvette Club and the Corvette Forum “Un-Club” groups.  There are many others that I have not mentioned, but you get the idea……everyone comes out to see the cars and meet with friends at Hillfest.   Many of the members of these clubs actively volunteer to help us stage this premiere event each year.

This year the event was held on May 31st and we had a great turn out!  While the weather was a bit chilly, the sun was bright and we had 155 Corvettes come out.  The food tent was busy all day and we sold out of hamburgers completely!!

Due to the generosity of our suppliers, employees, volunteers, clubs, event attendees and Wilson Niblett, we have been able to raise between $4,500 to $7,000 at each show for the benefit of the Sick Kids Foundation.  Come out and see the show next year!
