Wheelin’ Walla Walla Weekend

Buckle up for 2023!

Wheelin’ Walla Walla, presented by the Downtown Walla Walla Foundation and Les Schwab Tires, is more than just downtown Walla Walla’s annual classic car show… it’s a SE Washington tradition. This year’s festivities will take place September 8 & 9, and you’ll see more than 400 classic cars, trucks, and motorcycles on display throughout downtown Walla Walla on Main Street. The ABRAHAM LINCOLN, the Nation’s oldest operating private railroad car, will be on display at the corner of Main and Palouse Streets, with free tours available from 9am – 4pm.

Wheelin’ Walla Walla Weekend kicks off with the popular Friday Night Cruise from 6-7 pm, starting and ending at the Walla Walla Fairgrounds. Paid participants in the Cruise will enjoy a catered dinner afterward. On Saturday, return to charming downtown Walla Walla for the Show n’ Shine all day from 9 am to 3 pm, followed by the Awards Ceremony where over 100 trophies will be handed out, including Best of Show, Participants Choice, and the Neal Larson Memorial Award. The fun ends with LIVE music and dancing on 1st street, with performances by Danny Vernon and the Devilles, followed by Wally & The Beavs.
