Staff and volunteers at the Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center Museum are gearing up for their 22nd annual Show & Shine car show September 1st, 2018. Second only to the annual auction and dinner, the car show is a major fund raiser for the museum. The fee to enter a car is $20 and there is no charge for spectators. There will be a food booth with lots of great choices. We also will be raffling off a lot of nice items donated by local businesses, ranging in value from $10 to $200.” Gates will open at 9 a.m. for participants, with the show running from noon to 4 p.m. There will be an auto-oriented swap meet on the grounds, with each space costing $20. Fifty-fifty tickets will be sold, with the winner taking home half the earnings. Last year’s winner pocketed more than $300.
Are you looking to host an office party, wedding, birthday party, class reunion, or maybe just a great get together? If so we would love to host it.
The museum boasts thousands of square feet of available space including a meeting room, theater, large outdoor patio, as well as the Grand Gallery. Our staff would love to show you the space and help make your event one to remember.
