Classic Cars, a Grape Stomp, and a Special 90th Birthday

September 03, 2018

Vintage vehicles, motorcycles, and classic cars will soon be rolling into town for the annual Wheelin' Walla Walla Weekend. Always held the weekend after Labor Day, this event features such events as a Classics Cruise, a catered dinner, and the Show n’ Shine. The Friday Classics Cruise and Catered Dinner are set for September 7, while the Show n’ Shine is slated for September 8, along with an Awards Ceremony. Visitors can cruise Main Street on foot to check out over 400 cars and cycles.

Next, stop in at the Marcus Whitman Hotel on September 11 for Business after Hours to help us celebrate our 90th birthday. Come dressed in your finest 1920s duds, or not, as you wish. The after party will feature prizes, speakeasy photo stations, table games, hors d’ouerves, a Model-A jalopy display, and a bootleg “tea” service. Lastly, leave your shoes behind and come to the Grape Stomp and Harvest Lunch at Canoe Ridge Vineyard on September 22. Guests will enjoy a rustic lunch along with the opportunity to jump in and stomp away.
