The Willows Car and Bike Show originated in 1986 and was put on by the Willows Chamber of Commerce. In 2005 the Chamber decided to no longer put on the show. A group of volunteers that had helped the Chamber with the show took it over and with a loan of $700.00 kept it going. By the end of 2016, the WIllows Car and Bike Show has given out $20,000 in scholarships and assistance in other ares of public need.
We are a committee of volunteers dedicated to seeing that this Car and Bike Show continues it's tradition of being the "Best Little Show in Nor-Cal". Our show brings people from all over the North State and surrounding areas from Southern California, Oregon and Nevada. People come to spend 2 days with us, with friends and family. We all share several passions. We all love cars and bikes, the quiet setting of Willows, and helping support local causes that include supplying scholarships to deserving Glenn County Graduating Seniors, summer in the park, every 15 minutes and others.
We spend all year planning our show. On the 3rd Friday evening of August each year we close down several blocks of town and invite enthusiast's to join us for our annual Show and Shine. There are vendors, trucks, cars, bikes, lots of great people and music. At 7pm we gather all of the show and shine participants together for a drivers meeting where we discuss the route and rules for our yearly Willows Cruise. The Friday night fun continues until 10pm. The next morning at 7am we open our annual show up to all comers. We have a play area for children, food, music, music trivia, raffles, 3 dot drop game and much much more. At 4pm winners are announced and the show concludes until next year.
