The Original British Car Day (OBCD)

The Chesapeake Chapter of the New England MG “T” Register is proud to invite you to attend the 41st meet of The Original British Car Day. This annual event is held for the enjoyment of all British car and motorcycle enthusiasts. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to local charities.

Our event will be held from 8:00 AM until 3:00 PM at the beautiful grounds of Lilypons Water Gardens, rain or shine. Come and enjoy this gathering of all British marques in one setting and the beauty of the water gardens. Bring your leashed pet and picnic lunch or partake of the food and drink offered by various food vendors.

This year's Featured Marque will be the TVR. We are pleased to serve as the TVR Club's venue for their annual gathering. We look forward to participation from this group and welcome their members and their cars on our show field!

A special treat this year will be mid-day musical performances by the 30-piece British Brass Band! They will be set up near the Chesapeake Chapter Hospitality Tent for all to enjoy. Another change this year will be the relocation of our spectator parking lot, which is now located about ¼ mile east on Lilypons Road.

There will be shuttle bus service all day for convenient transport to and from the show field and vendor areas.

Whether you are displaying your car, or just coming to enjoy the event, the drive is beautiful no matter which direction you come from. Lilypons Water Gardens is located in Adamstown, Maryland on Lilypons Road. It is accessed easily from North I-70 or I-270 via Route 85, or from the South via Route 28. Please visit their website at for directions and more information about their establishment.
