Vettes for Vets

Larry Jewett

Vettes for Vets is an annual, all-Corvette car show organized to honor the hard work and dedication military veterans have committed to our country. On Sunday, May 26, the general public can enjoy a free Corvette car show in the parking lot behind the museum and free museum admission for all veterans. All visitors will enjoy our new exhibit Elegance in Motion: Cars of the Golden Age, which opens May 25.
Vettes for Vets will be a great day of sunshine and memorial for our veterans who will enjoy raffle prizes, food trucks coordinated by Sacto MoFo, and awesome tunes. Corvette owners can pre-register for only $10  and $15 at the gate. Call (916) 442-6802 or visit Calautomuseum.org for more Car Show registration details.
The mission of the California Automobile Museum is to preserve, exhibit, and teach the story of the automobile and its influence on our lives. The California Automobile Museum in Sacramento is open daily from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and until 9:00pm every third Thursday of the month.
This event is sponsored by Performance Chevrolet
