23rd Annual Woodies on the Wharf
- Date: 06/24/2017 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
The scenic and historic Santa Cruz Wharf is the perfect setting for a celebration of the surf spirit and classic surf wagons. More than 200 "Woodies," gorgeous, pre-1950s cars that feature wood bodies, line the wharf. Music, t-shirts, memorabilia and prize drawings add to the free fun. Stroll the wharf and enjoy dozens of shops and restaurants and stellar coastal views while you soak up the sun and beauty of Northern California's premier Woodie show.
Presented by the Santa Cruz Woodies, the Santa Cruz Wharf and the City of Santa Cruz. Co-sponsored by KPIG 107.5 FM, Allterra Solar, Hagerty Classic Car Insurance, Pearson Arrow Surfboards, Family Cycling Center, Floyd Smith Custom Surfboards, Community Printers and Michel Junod Surfboards.
