Car Nights on Poole Quay

Yellow, red and green roadster style cars lined up at Poole quay with harbour behind them


Poole Quay hosts a unique, themed car event every Friday evening from 6pm – 9pm, putting a great selection of popular car marques in the spotlight.

'Car Nights on Poole Quay' create a bustling, lively atmosphere that can be enjoyed by owners as they mingle with fellow enthusiasts and spectators who want to catch a glimpse of the line up. All who attend will be spoilt for choice with the Quay’s great selection of continental café bars, traditional pubs and fine dining restaurants.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION (on car night): Vehicles are requested not to arrive before 6pm as the road is not closed until this time and there is no parking available; also please avoid waiting up the high street as this causes traffic congestion. *Please note that for these events we have no way of knowing prospective attendance in advance as spaces are not reserved. Parking is therefore on a 'first come, first served' basis, the site capacity is 100-120 vehicles, after that on a 'one in one out' system*
