What: 900+ booth automotive swap meet with new and used cars and parts. Focused on Corvettes and Musclecars. Average weekend attendance 7500-8500. Activities include special invitation vehicle displays, Next Generation exhibitions for the youngsters under 40, Valve Cover Races, courtesy of Corvette Marque Club of Seattle, Pinstriper demonstrations (Want your stuff, including your vehicle, done at the show? Let us know!), numerous car club informational booths, and the greatest automotive social event in the NW!!

Pavilion Building Display– Over 20,000 sq. ft. of indoor, professionally decorated space for vehicles displays and informational car club booths. No used parts in this building. Vehicle display is invitational, no fees, no trophies, no for sale signs, just an opportunity to share your special car or truck with other hobbyists. Upscale presentation with carpeted aisles and back draped booths. We provide stanchions and basic signage. Professional show cards OK if you have them. Friday move-in preferred, Saturday move-out at 4:00PM. Batteries must be disconnected, ¼ tank or less of fuel, and locking or taped gas caps. Limited to approximately 30-35 vehicles. Got something cool? Call or email us, we’re always looking for interesting cars or trucks. Valve Cover Races Saturday morning, usually done by noon so get there early for free registration and practice. More details elsewhere on the site.

General: The Meet uses the Pavilion building, Showplex building, Centennial building, and Show Arena barn areas and all surrounding outside paved areas. Considered by many in the car hobbies as a season opener and the ultimate cure for cabin fever. We just think it’s a really awesome northwest automotive social event where you can see old friends and make new ones while basking in a sea of automotive stuff!

Participants generally travel from Canada to California. Baby Boomers make up the core group of attendees with many claiming to have been attending the event since it began in 1975!

The show staff consists of an established group of 45+ individuals (not counting the Car Club volunteers who help us out Saturday morning). Many of our staff have been with us 20 years or more. Same chairman since the beginning in 1975.

This event is promoted by Corvette & High Performance, a hobby turned business by owners Larry & Karen Johnson. Daughter Chris has been working the show since the age of 9 (she’s now married with two young gearheads). The event started at the Trail’s End Stables in Tumwater and moved to the SW Washington Fairgrounds in Centralia before moving to the Washington State Fair Events Center in 1984.
