Vendors and participants will begin setting up Thursday, August 2nd on the fairgrounds and in the Yakima SunDome.

Reis says, “This year we’ll also have a super car show inside the SunDome with 10 or 12 vehicles that are not driven or driven very rarely.”

The general public can attend the Vintiques Northwest Nationals show from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm on Friday, August 3rd, and 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday.

This year’s event will feature a concert by American Honey, a contemporary and traditional country band, at 7:00 pm on Friday at State Fair Park. The concert is included with paid admission to Vintiques Northwest Nationals.
