News flash! We just learned yesterday that the popular Oregon Mountain Cruise classic car show in Joseph Oregon will take a break for June 2014. This particular event is one of the big kickoff weekends of summer since it holds the 2nd weekend of June slot right after the Wallowa Valley Festival of Arts
From the cruise's website:
It's been 25 years since a group of family & friends from all over the northwest joined together to organize and host the "Oregon Mtn. Cruise Car Show" in Joseph, Oregon. We regret to inform all our cruisers that after 25 years, we have decided to take the year off in 2014 to re-group, re-energize, re-organize and for some much needed rest. WE WILL BE BACK JUNE 12-13, 2015. Have a great summer and hope to see you in Joseph, Oregon in 2015.
Living in a remote area like Wallowa County Oregon means that we live in an absolutely beautiful place, but it also means that there aren't all that many people here to volunteer for the many events that take place during the summer months. We're glad that the Joseph Oregon Car Show organizers got the word out so early about their change in plans so the rest of us can plan accordingly. For those of you planning your 2014 Eastern Oregon vacation you'll just have to plan for another area car show instead.
And for our Bronze Antler Bed and Breakfast guests who booked their guestrooms for June 2014 around this event, please contact us (if we haven't yet contacted you) so we can make adjustments to your reservations. Our phone: 541-432-0230.
The silver lining to all of this? We know, just like the Bronze, Blues & Brews festival every year in August that took a one-year break a few years ago, that the Oregon Mountain Cruise will come back bigger and better than it was in the past!
