Fall Classic Car Show Comes to Jacksonville
12th Annual Fall Classic Car Show Returns to Jacksonville
Rogue Valley Corvettes’ 12th Annual Fall Classic Car and Truck Show returns to Jacksonville’s Bigham Knoll Campus on Saturday, September 9th. Bigham Knoll has proven to be a great venue for the Fall Classic, as the 2016 show set a record with over 200 show cars and trucks in attendance.
“We think the Fall Classic has found a home for the foreseeable future,” says Fall Classic Chairman John Warren. “The staffs at Bigham Knoll and the City of Jacksonville have welcomed the Fall Classic, and our attendees loved the new location.”
The Fall Classic, which raises money for SkillsUSA programs in Jackson, Josephine and Klamath Counties, has outgrown its three previous locations over its 12-year span. Bigham Knoll Campus allows for more show participants and more public participation than ever before.
“Our show is known for its hospitality and relaxed atmosphere,” says Warren. “We draw some of the nicest show cars and trucks from up and down the West Coast. And, Jacksonville is such a nice destination that we’ve seen a dramatic increase in people coming out for the show.”
The Fall Classic has raised nearly $90,000 for SkillsUSA. Most of the money raised is used for travel expenses, allowing area students to attend state, regional and national competitions. The $90,000 has translated into over $5 Million in college scholarships.
SkillsUSA is a program to help high school students learn skills, compete for scholarships and advance to higher levels of education in varying fields. Their mission is to empower its students to become world-class workers, leaders and responsible American citizens.
“We’re very proud of Rogue Valley Corvettes’ commitment to our communities and the good that the Fall Classic has done. And we’re proud – and lucky – to have our show in a place like Jacksonville,” Warren added.
This is also the annual City Wide Yard Sale Weekend which means lots of traffic – both pedestrian and vehicular. So please be careful driving in town and be sure to follow parking restrictions. Event Parking information will be coming soon.
