Woodies on the Wharf
More than 200 stylish, pre-1952 wood-bodied cars. Plus music, woodie goodies, prize drawings and a parade!
Every day (Jun 21-Jun 23) from 10:00am to 4:00pm

(0 April 2018) woodies.jpgEras can often be define by their popular cars. What would the 2000s be without the Hummer, the 80s without sports cars, the 60s without VW Vans?  This is the time of year when Santa Cruzans honor the iconic cars of the pre-60s decades. That's right, it's time for another Woodies on the Wharf event.


Saturday, 10:00 am to 3:30 pm - 25th Annual Woodies on the Wharf

Woodies start rolling onto the Wharf early Saturday morning and are greeted by SCWC members with registration packets and welcoming goodie bags. NO PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Activities throughout the day include music; merchandise sales; raffles for 100's of prizes including beach bikes and surfboards (90 percent of raffle proceeds go to worthy charities); not to mention wandering the wharf, checking out all the woodies; and visiting the Wharf merchants and restaurants! One of the big hits of the day is the surfboard shaping demonstration by famed Hall of Fame shaper Floyd Smith of Gordon & Smith Surfboards; so, be sure to drop by Floyd's shaping bay to watch him work his magic! This year, as a special treat, come to the raffle area at around noon to enjoy a Hula Show presented by Mehana Thomas' Hula Troop Kuhai Halau O Mehana Pa ‘Olapa Kahiko.

Dog owners should be aware that dogs are not permitted on the wharf.

 

3:30 p.m. - The Parade off the Wharf

One of the highlights of the day is the Woodie Parade off the Wharf which begins promptly at 3:30 p.m. If you drove your woodie, please make sure to check your registration packets for parade instructions, and to follow the directions of the folks in orange vests so that you can help make this an enjoyable and hassle-free parade for everyone
