In addition to the display of more than 100 collector cars showcased across the grounds the 2019 ChillAxle Car Show and RC Car Race will offer an abundance of activities and attractions for families and children of all ages at the Kittitas Valley Event Center on Saturday June 29, 2019.
Featuring an array of vintage, domestics, imports, and local car clubs, this show will offer a memorable experience with some impressive classic and modern muscle cars. The Grand Boulevard is our picturesque outside venue providing show-goers with a historical walk-through of automotive history with this display of unique and show stopping vehicles from all eras.

With the help of our sponsor, Jerrol’s, our indoor Arena will be set up as a challenging race track where RC car enthusiasts can run several heats throughout the day to compete for bragging rights of the fastest RC in Kittitas County. Zooming, zigging, & zagging around the track at lightening speeds they are something to behold to be sure! If you haven’t seen these RC Cars in action then you must come on down and check them out!
