Shannons Logo

The 2023 Shannons Adelaide Chrysler Festival will be held on the weekend of 24th to 26th March, 2023. All Chrysler Day will once again be at GAZA Oval, Klemzig.


The Chrysler Car Club of SA invites all owners of Chrysler vehicles to join us in Adelaide from 24-26 March 2023 for what promises to be the biggest All Chrysler Day of all time.

Held on the weekend after COTM, it provides a great opportunity to do an extended road trip to both events.

It also coincides with the Adelaide Motorsport Festival held at Victoria Park, the CBD circuit of the Adelaide 500 and former Formula 1 street circuit.

If you can’t display your vehicle for the whole day, why not bring it along anyway and put it into the ‘MoParking’ area – our free parking area for your classic or modern Mopar where you can park and come and go as you please. ‘MoParking’ is on the oval where the main display cars are parked, but you aren’t restricted to the display times of the main show).

Participants are encouraged to register their attendance over the weekend by clicking the button above.

We are still locking in some details, but here is what we know is happening over the weekend so far…
