Fall Classic Moving To Historic Jacksonville

A car show with history deserves a historic venue.

Rogue Valley Corvettes’ Fall Classic – one of the region’s most popular car culture events
– is moving to Historic Jacksonville, Oregon.  Jacksonville is a National Historic Landmark
Town in the heart of Southern Oregon’s Wine Country and home of Britt Festival. Area
activities include wine tasting, hiking and biking, historical tours, music, shopping, dining,
pampering and lodging. Day trips from Jacksonville include Crater Lake National Park,
Rogue River Gorge and Natural Bridge, Oregon Caves, Rogue River and the Oregon
Shakespeare Festival.

The 2016 Fall Classic will be held at Bigham Knoll Campus in Jacksonville on September 10th.

“This is a giant step forward,” John Warren, Fall Classic Chairman, said. “The move to
Jacksonville will help take our show to another level. We think this will be great for the Fall
Classic, for its participants and for the City of Jacksonville. We’re really excited.”

With a long, rich history in the Rogue Valley, and known as “The most fun car show in the region”,
the Fall Classic began in 2006 as a Chevy-only show at Medford’s Heritage Motors. Its popularity
and attendance quickly outgrew Heritage and the show moved to Airport Chevrolet. In 2012, the
Fall Classic was opened to All Makes and Models and moved to TC Chevy in Ashland. In the past
10-years, the Fall Classic – with help from its participants, sponsors and three great dealerships
– has raised nearly $75,000 for Skills USA programs in Jackson, Josephine and Klamath Counties.
That $75,000 has translated into nearly $4 Million in college scholarships awarded to area students!

“We’ve been blessed with three great dealerships as hosts in the past,” Warren said. “We couldn’t
have raised the kind of money we have without their support, and the support of our participants.
We look forward to a long run in Jacksonville.”

Skills USA affords students the opportunity to study in areas outside the typical liberal arts curriculum.
RVC, through its association with Skills, has helped students succeed in areas of studies like nursing,
video production, diesel mechanics, auto body, business, computer science and others.

The Fall Classic now draws nearly 200 cars and trucks of all makes. Local television and print media
have taken notice of the show and helped increase the public’s awareness with coverage leading up
to the event. The move to Bigham Knoll Campus is a great one – show cars and trucks will park on
grass, and we have room to grow. Register early to insure your spot at our new venue.

Bigham Knoll Campus is a wonderful facility for the Fall Classic. Jacksonville is, well, Jacksonville
– a historic town.

Join us for the 2016 Fall Classic on September 10th!
