Based on attendance at other car shows in the community, Scott Strudwick is hoping for good attendance at the revived Brookswood Car Show at the end of the month.
Strudwick, whose Strudwick real estate team helps organize the Brookswood event – and created the brookswoodcarshow.ca website – has been encouraged by record numbers at other recent car shows in Langley.
After two years “out of commission” due to pandemic restrictions that prevented Brookswood from hosting an in-person car show, there appears to be a lot of pent-up demand, Strudwick told the Langley Advance Times.

“I grew up in Brookswood, and my dad and I are huge hotrod fans, so we saw this as a great opportunity to bring the community together and support Brookswood High School,” Strudwick said.
Brookswood Secondary began hosting car shows to raise money for school programs in 2017.
Vice-Principal Logan Kitteringham said Brookswood Secondary was “ecstatic to be restarting the Brookswood Community Car Show alongside Scott Strudwick and his team”.
“We welcome the additional resources, and we love that Scott has a personal connection to the school, being a Brookswood alumnus and now coming back to us as a community leader,” Kitteringham added.
“This car show provides a relatively unique opportunity to rally and engage our staff and students in a common cause of hosting an extravaganza that ultimately benefits the school and its programs.”
