(Victorville)–The Route 66 International Festival for 2012 will be held in Victorville, CA from August 9 -12, 2012. With the theme “California Dreamin’ on Route 66”, the Festival will attract many 66’ enthusiasts from across the nation, from foreign countries as well as local car clubs and residents.
Each year, one of the eight states through which Route 66 runs is selected to host the event.
Victorville, California was an overwhelming choice for the 2012 festival with its California Route 66 Museum that attracts thousands of visitors per year and tourist-friendly attractions. Victorville is centrally-located along the 318 miles of historic Route 66 that crosses California from Needles to Santa Monica, making it convenient to visit other key Route 66 towns and attractions.
The Festival will feature a rally, a classic car show, daily entertainment, the taste of 66, a car cruise to a drive-in theatre, 66’ themed vendors and other special events. Pre and Post events are also being planned including a poker run planned in the towns along California Route 66.
The Historic Green Tree Inn (www.GreenTreeInnVictorville.com) in Victorville is the official site and host hotel and will have special packages (limited availability) for our 66 travelers. Located on historic Route 66, the Green Tree incorporates a Route 66 theme and is a popular stop for travelers along the Mother Road. So join us at the festival and get your 2012 kicks on California Route 66!
