Monterey Car Week, The Complete List (I hope)

Boy did i take some heat for my 'heads up' about Monterey Car Week because I didn't list every event. You'd think I had just run over the whole field of cars with a bulldozer at one of the shows! So as an atonement here's a video about another historic event held in Monterey.

Many of the events are charity fundraisers meaning you're going to have a good time and do a good deed at the same time. Some are pricey but worth it if you can afford it Others, often those at public venues (streets and parks), are free. If you're going for more than one day hotels can be pricey and fill up fast so book early. If you're going for just one day, especially if it's for one of the free events, buy lunch or dinner at one of the great spots on the Monterey Peninsula. The Peninsula is inundated with car nuts so spread some money around to let them know you appreciate their hospitality.

If I've missed an event please let me know of the name, address, date and time, and I will update this list.

See you there!
