If you can, check the calendar before you set your event date. Although " everyone knows our show is this date " it may not get the attendance you want because there is a " competing " event 25 miles up the road. On line calendars are a great service to our hobby. They can be used to prevent conflicts, and grow your club. Posting your events as soon as possible also helps people plan to participate and vendor's scheduling. Post on as many calendars as you can find, too. We may be one of the biggest, but no one reaches everyone!
Why are the AACA Museum and Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles family events posted on NortheastWheelsEvents.com? Because we support our car museums!
These events serve many positive purposes.
First, they bring in people who would never have visited a car museum. This makes more people aware of the " pretty cars " as well as gets more people through the gates, keeping the museum open and strong.
Second, getting more kids into the museum may light the fire we all share, the passion for all things on wheels.
Third, These events are great reasons why you can enjoy the great cars and buses on display while your family enjoys the added attractions.
These events are win/win situations for all of us! So, plan to attend your local museum with your family and make a memory together.
See you at the show,
