2023 Wavecrest Woodie Meet

September 21 - 24

 

The world’s longest running woodie festival takes place September 21st through the 24th in Encinitas. This is the 44th annual event!

 

The Wavecrest Woodie Meet kicks off Thursday evening with the last of the Encinitas Classic Car Nights for 2023 from 4:30 – 8:00. This event is in downtown Encinitas along the Coast Road (N. Coast Highway 101).

 

Friday night is the “Meet and Greet” at 4:30 to 6:30 pm at the host hotel, the Encinitan Hotel and Suites (formerly the Best Western). The hotel is just a short distance from Moonlight Beach, just east of the Coast Road.

 

Saturday is the big Woodie Meet with a couple hundred Woodies on display in the parking lot above Moonlight Beach from 8 am until 3 pm. You’ll find a DJ, Food Trucks and a Raffle. (photo is of Moonlight Beach.)

Saturday ends with a catered dinner (there are limited tickets) at the Encinitan Hotel. The dinner starts at 5:00 pm followed by an auction and a raffle.

 

The Wavecrest Woodie Meet is reportedly the largest of its kind in the world. So you’re sure to see plenty of car admirers and collectors, along with a couple hundred or so beautiful cars.

 

Expect lots of people gathering to admire these magnificent cars, trade stories, and enjoy the beach and surf. And you get to hang out at one of the best beaches in the San Diego area.

 

The Wavecrest Woodie Meet ends Sunday morning starting at 8:00 with a cruise of Woodies up the Coast Road. Meet at the Encinitas City Hall on Vulcan.

Hello Jeff - it seems like it's surfin' safari time once again with more than a bit of wood paneling.  Lots of automative eye candy - that's for sure.

The forerunner of the modern SUV. They were special and the ones that have been restored speak of a great love by the owners.

Thank you Dorie Dillard Austin TX 

My bet is the Woodie lovers and collectors know all about this event - it's a big deal - but some may need reminders.

Have a great weekend!

It looks really cool but I don't think that I would want to be driving around in one of those, haha.

Good morning, Jeff... I know you post about this Woodie event most years. And I believe you've attended it. Are you going again this year?

Hi Nina Hollander, Broker 

Yes I write about this most years and have been in the past. No plans for this year as I have plans to be out of town for several of those days.

Enjoy your weekend!

Hi Jeff,

When I see a Wood paneled vehicle, it reminds me of being a teenager at Huntington Beach watching the surfers.
