 10th Annual
Woodies in the Valley
March 11-13, 2016

Well, the 10th Annual Woodies in the Valley was a great success. We did have some rain on Friday, which being a travel day for our out-of-towners, took its toll on overall attendance. But regardless, we still had a great turnout (and no rain) for our Saturday Show-and-Shine. Not only did we have a good turnout of woodies (and their owners) from all over the state, but many woodie owners who didn't feel comfortable driving their cars in the rain, came anyway in their modern cars.  Bottom line was that all who attended had a great time - and we thank them for coming!

We'll get some photos posted in the near future.

Plans are being finalized for 2016's Woodies in the Valley to be held in Visalia, CA March 11-13.

Our welcoming woodies-only "cruise-in" will once again be held on Friday night (from about 5 p.m. until 9) at our nostalgic downtown A&W drive-in, 301 N. Willis. 

Saturday (from about 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.), we'll be enjoying our Show 'n Shine all-woodies car show at Redwood High School, 1001 W. Main St., followed immediately by a fun cruise through some of our beautiful ag country with lots of blossoms to enjoy along the way. The cruise will include a snack stop and some "gear-head stuff" as well! Specifically, club member Tom Meleo has agreed to open up his VERY cool Chevrolet collection for the woodie cruisers (click on link for some teaser photos from a woodie-visit a few years back): Meleo Collection

We also have a great, new food vendor this year - 4 Seasons BBQ - who will be providing delicious breakfast burritos in the morning as well as tri-tip burritos and sandwiches for lunch! 

Saturday night we will have a group dinner planned, but if you would rather go scout out some of our awesome local eateries, you are more than welcome to do so.

Sunday morning we will have our now famous "Goodbye Breakfast" once again for woodie show participants only at the home and car collection of members Brian & Sandy Blain. Some of you may remember a tour of Brian's collection on one of our cruises a few years back. He has a very cool and eclectic collection.

We are happy to report that we have our two long-time host hotels returning to work with us this year: The Visalia Marriott and the Comfort Suites. Both are great hotels and are both offering a $99/night special rate for our event. Marriott reservations can be made by calling direct at 559-636-1111 and asking for Denise and our special rate.

Comfort Suites reservations can be made by calling them direct at 559-738-1700 and asking for our special Woodies in the Valley rate.
WEATHER - Visalia's March weather is usually VERY pleasant, with an average high of 67 degrees and an average low of 46 degrees. We have only had one real weather issue in our show's history. However, it's always good to keep an eye on the weather as we get closer. For your convenience, we are posting a link below to weather.com's 10-day forecast to keep you updated:

We will be posting more info on this website as it becomes available.
