 13th Annual
Woodies in the Valley
March 15-17, 2019

Well, another year has come and gone. We are now actively working on – and looking forward to – our 13th annual “Woodies in the Valley” show scheduled for March 15-17, 2019 here in Visalia (note this is a date change).

Our event will begin with a welcome gathering at our downtown Visalia's A&W drive-in restaurant 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, immediately followed by a fun cruise. The Saturday show also coincides this year with Downtown Visalia’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and those interested are invited to participate.

This year, we will be moving our highly-successful drive-in movie night to Saturday. This time we will be showing the classic movie Grease starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. The drive-in will be held on the Golden West High school athletic field and accomplished through the use of a very large, inflatable screen, a powerful projector, and an FM transmitter for sound. There also will be large speakers provided for those who just want to sit outside in their lawn chairs and enjoy the movie and overall experience. We are co-hosting the drive-in event this year with the Small Town Cruizers car club and will be inviting other area car clubs as well. There will be a modest charge for the movie. This promises to be GREAT fun as well as a very nostalgic evening! 

Please get this weekend on your calendars NOW.
