Description:  The National Corvette Museum has announced the 2024 National Corvette Caravan will be held on Aug 29th thru Aug 31st. Corvette Club of Utah will be part of the Northern Nevada, Wyoming, and Northern Utah Caravan. Our Caravan Captain is Kevin McBride from Wyoming. The Caravan Captain will plan the route and stops for the caravan from Reno, Nevada to Bowling Green, Kentucky. CCU may or may not travel with the caravan. It has done both in the past. CCU will designate a Caravan Co-Captain who will coordinate CCU’s participation with the Caravan Captain.

You must signup for the Caravan through the museum to receive your caravan credentials and the club website. NCM provides the Caravan Captain with roster of their Caravan Participants so they can communicate with the participants. You need to sign-up with CCU so the CCU Co-Captain can account for you and take care of you. These sign-ups will start sometime during 2023. Motel reservations and route information will also be placed on the web sometime in 2023.

The caravan will probably depart Reno, NV on Friday, Aug 23rd and arrive in Utah that evening. The club and other Northern Utah participants will join the caravan on Saturday, Aug 24th as it heads North to West Yellowstone for a drive through Yellowstone Park on the way to Cody, WY. From there it will head East to Cheyenne, WY; Lincoln, NE, and Effingham, IL where Mid America Motorworks usually holds a Caravan Bash. The caravan will then depart from Effingham, IL on Thursday, Aug 29th with several other caravans for the final run to Bowling Green.

Thursday and Friday will be at the National Corvette Museum to check-in, pickup your credentials, and participate in any museum activities you signed up for. You can also watch the caravans come in, visit the museum exhibits, and shop at the Corvette Store. Friday Night has traditionally been the concert and fireworks at the museum.

Once you are in Bowling Green, you will have Thursday and Friday to visit the museum, Corvette Store, and the various other vendors at the museum. Friday night ends with a concert and fireworks at the museum. There will also be other tours, meetings, and events you can sign-up for with the museum. You can also visit the NCM Motor Sports Park and drive a few laps in your Corvette. Hopefully, you will also be able to tour the Corvette Factory while you are there. There are also distilleries to visit, caves to explore, and museums to see. You will find there is more to see than the time you will be there. Saturday morning we depart for home and will arrive back in SLC on Monday, Sept 2nd, Labor Day. If you are still working, this means you will only have to take a week off from work to participate in the caravan.

Put the dates on your calendar and watch the website for new details as the planning takes place.
