The Early Ford V-8 Club of America approved the Puget Sound Regional Group to host a 2022 Western National Meet in Wenatchee, Washington July 11th thru 14th 2022. We are excited to bring Club members and their vintage Fords to this beautiful city located on the Columbia River in north-central Washington 148 miles from Seattle. Wenatchee is the Apple Capital of the World and the center of Washington’s system of Columbia River dams which provide power, irrigation, and recreation.

The Coast Hotel sits adjacent to the Wenatchee Convention Center. They offer views of the river and face on Wenatchee Avenue which runs through the low-rise historic downtown. The city has a 1950 character with highways and roads that were designed for Early Fords and offer fantastic scenery. You will have the opportunity to drive 24 miles to the Bavarian town of Leavenworth nestled in the Cascade Mountains. A tour of Rocky Reach Dam offers insight into Washington’s hydro-electric system that generates much of the region’s power. The Ohme Gardens provide a breathtaking view of the Cascade Mountains and the Columbia River valley.

Wenatchee has many things to see and do. To acquaint you with things of interest, please explore the links to regional locations and activities provided in “Other Information” below including videos showing a vibrant community of 35,000 people enjoying life and raising their families free from the distractions of a large metropolitan city.

The Wenatchee Convention Center and The Coast Wenatchee Center Hotel are committed to creating a memorable experience for our National Meet. With the pandemic preventing any National meets in 2020 and 2021, we expect you will be excited to join us in Wenatchee. Our theme is: On the Road to Wenatchee! Registration is now open.
