No shows in 2020
Our season commences this year on Wednesday, May 6. As always, for the first two Wednesdays the event will take place on the back parking lot located behind the merry-go-round and adjacent to the Bear Mountain Skating Rink. If you are not familiar with this location, follow signage as you would be entering in the same location as our weekly cruise event.
For the first two weeks there is NO PARKING on the GRASS, as we are complying with the park’s request as they prepare the field for the summer season. Anyone found not in compliance of this request will be removed at the discretion of our volunteer staff. Thank you for your compliance.
All vehicles entering the park pay a $5 Park Entrance Fee after 4:00pm. Rod Benders Car Club does not receive any part of this fee.
A $45 seasonal club membership exempts members from the entrance fee. This membership is available for all years of vehicles. You may register at the desk. We only accept cash and/or money order at this time. We hope to soon have an option for other electronic payments to be accepted. (Please note, there was a $5 increase effective for the 2019 season, as many supply costs have risen and we must be able to cover all costs to run the event so that we may continue to support the charities and local communities as we have in past seasons).
Seasonal membership is required for all 2000 and newer vehicles to be on the field. A $5 one night pass is also available for the newer vehicles but the $5 entrance fee will still be charged by the park.
Please park in rows as directed by our staff so we may maximize the number of cars on the show field (or parking lots). Don’t drive onto the field to “reserve” a space. Please meet up outside the gate and drive in together if you want to park next to a particular vehicle or with your group or car club.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) is causing events to be cancelled or rescheduled. We will do our best to update events when we find out, but please check with the event directly before attending. Whenever possible we include links to their facebook page (look for the 'visit event website' link on our event pages), flyers which contain event contact info, or contact info in the event description.
