 14th Annual
Woodies in the Valley
March 13-15, 2020

We are in full-speed preparations for our upcoming 14th annual “Woodies in the Valley” show scheduled for March 13-15, 2020 here in Visalia. 

Our event will begin with a welcome gathering at our downtown Visalia's A&W drive-in restaurant (301 N. Willis) on Friday night from about 5-9. Drop in and stay for as little or long as you like.

Saturday morning we will host o
ur regular “Show ‘n Shine” event from 8-2, at Redwood High School (1001 W Main St). The show will include some cool 60s DJ music, lots of raffle prizes, and awesome food (available for purchase) - not to mention the traditional woodie ohana and fellowship! Although we will not be holding our drive-in movie this year, our woodie show does coincide with Downtown Visalia’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and those interested in participating, are invited to do so. 

Immediately following our show will be our traditional Valley Cruise, where we will see some beautiful countryside - along with a car-related stop or two with some snacks thrown in for good measure. 
Saturday evening, participants are free to join us for a group dinner - or have dinner on their own at one of Visalia's fabulous restaurants.

Sunday morning we will have our traditional "Farewell Breakfast" at the Blains'. More details provided at the show.

Please make your plans NOW to attend!
