Annual Corvette Weekend Car Fun With Live Music, Food Vendors, Raffles, Car Contests, Cruises and the Big SOCA Car Show In Grants Pass, Oregon at Beautiful Riverside Park
Every other year hundreds of Corvette owners from all over the Pacific Northwest gather in Southern Oregon for a weekend of fun, food and friends at the SOCA Corvette Weekend. Most of the event's activities take place along the banks of the Rogue River at Riverside Park and at the Taprock Northwest Grill in Grants Pass.
Some highlights of Corvette Weekend are the big SOCA Car Show and BBQ lunch at Riverside Park catered by Cartwright's Valley Meats, raffles, an auction, the traditional Blind Golf Cart Race, the 50/50 drawing, trophy awards topped by the "Best in Show" category and the presentation of the "Big Check" to benefit Candlelighters For Children With Cancer.
For some adventure, participants can choose to go on a Hellgate Jetboat Excursions Dinner Cruise down the scenic Rogue River on a twin-engine Chevy big-block powered jetboat skimming inches above the water at 50 mph, sometimes drenching guests as the boat pilot spins and dunks the boat at every opportunity! On the way back, it's BBQ ribs and chicken dinner at the OK Corral before making the short return trip back to Grants Pass.
Also on the agenda is a delightful drive through the breathtaking beauty of the Applegate Valley and the always popular Funkhana driving event, giving both drivers and spectators more than a few laughs as the drivers put their cars through a series of fun and tricky driving maneuvers.
This event is family fun for Corvette owners, enthusiasts and all lovers of Chevy's quintessential sports car.
