West Coast Holiday Event Activities

As our event draws near, we will email preliminary and updated agendas to all registrants. In the meantime, these are some of the activities we can announce at this time.  Please be aware, this is a preliminary agenda and events are subject to change without notice.

Wednesday, October 16th.  For those arriving early, join us for an informal evening social event in the Santa Barbara area between 6pm and 9pm. Still in the planning stage, details will be available at a later date for registered attendees. If you think you might arrive early, please let us know. This is for planning purposes only and we are not looking for a commitment. 


Thursday, October 17th. If you plan to be in Santa Barbara before the event formally opens, we are planning an informal "early bird drive" on the morning of October 17th. Our early bird drive starts around 9am-ish from Montecito Coast Village and will give you a chance to see some of the beauty the area has to offer. Again, no commitment and more details will be available closer to the event.

Let us know you're interested in joining us on this drive....

On Thursday evening, we kickoff our Holiday with a Gala Reception in the Hilton outdoor courtyard overlooking the Pacific Ocean for all registrants and guests. Expect a few beautiful Porsche 356s center stage!



Friday, October 18th. We have a number of activities and drives planned for all registrants which will make for a full day. These include multiple area tour options which are still in the planning stage at this point.  Look for more details in future emails.

Included in Friday's activities are drives to very special venues which are fundraisers for "Drive for the Cure - Parkinson's Disease".  These "premium" drives will require pre-registration with payment.  They will include food and a donation to the "Drive for the Cure". The details on these unique drives and other tours are are still being worked out and will be made available to all registrants before the event. Stay tuned for a followup email communications from us in the near future!

Saturday, October 19th. The traditional highlight of any West Coast Holiday is the Concours on Saturday morning. The location we have chosen for the Concours is a spectacular site with easy access overlooking  the ocean at Santa Barbara City College.
