Planning A Rod Run

Gettin' It Together...

Vintiques Rod Run committee heads begin planning well in advance!

It takes more than 30 committees to keep the thousands of street rodding guests busy and organized in Yakima. Club planning begins a year and a half ahead. The vice-president, elected each February, goes on to become Rod Run Director for the following year's run.

The Central Washington State Fairgrounds has worked closely with the club and provides an incredible setting for the Yakima Rod Run. Huge trees help to shade the camping areas and full hookup sites are scattered on the grounds. There is also volleyball, a car game area, an area for kid's games and the perfect loop for Saturday night cruisin' right on the grounds! A drag strip is within a few miles and a circle track is right across the road for any rodders feelin' the need for speed.

The Yakima Valley offers many miles of scenic roads, perfect for a poker run or winery tour. There are also national historic sites, perfect for keepsake photos, and lots of antiques and produce ripe for the picking!

Vendors set up in the air-conditioned Sundome, which also has large clean showers available to rod run campers.
