It’s that time of year again when the streets of Solvang are flooded with 15,000 car enthusiasts from all over California and 300 car show participants to enjoy a weekend of camaraderie and charitable activities supporting our local community. Again the Saturday main event will be held on Copenhagen Drive from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with a mix of classic cars, hot rods and special interest vehicles along with vendor booths, music and give a ways. The car show entrants will also have the opportunity to take part in a “Poker Walk” during the show, visiting the local merchants and collecting cards for that “perfect” poker hand. On Sunday morning the cars will be winding through Solvang, Los Olivos and Santa Ynez visiting some of our local parks, wineries and museums to get a better idea of why we all love this area so much.

All proceeds from this year’s show will again benefit our local charities which include:

Central Coast Type 1 (a Diabetes support organization)

The Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society

The Progeria Foundation (a National charity)
