EUREKA SPRINGS CORVETTE WEEKEND
October 5 - 8, 2017
We began in 1990 with just a picnic, and 33 Corvettes from Northwestern Arkansas, Springfield, Missouri and Kansas City. Each year the weekend has grown and we have added new events over the years. With well over 1,000 Corvettes in attendance, Eureka Springs Corvette Weekend is now one of the three largest non-commercial annual Corvette events in the United States.
1993 By the third year, we'd expanded to three rather crowded lots, still downtown.
1994 The only year it's rained all day - the city let us use every available parking space along all the streets of downtown. This turned out to be too spread out and the other shoppers were not exactly thrilled with the Corvette Parking Only situation.
By 1995, it was clear there was no longer enough room anywhere downtown so we moved the car show to Pine Mountain Village, where there is room for about 600 cars. But the Vettes kept coming and, as shown in the 1999 photo at the right, even that filled beyond capacity.
In 2000, we moved to The Great Passion Play grounds where we could fit over 1,000 cars.
