Schedule Change - Car Show2/15/2017 The Sturgis Falls Celebration Board announces that the 2017 annual car show will be suspended as the Board continues to seek another lead organization to coordinate and manage the car show event.
For the past 10 years the PIPAC organization, assisted by the Cedar Valley Jeep Owners club, has managed the Car Show for Sturgis Falls. In November 2016, both organizations announced their retirement from the Car Show coordination. The Sturgis Falls Board greatly appreciates the years of service to the Car Show by PIPAC and CV Jeep Owners.
“We knew the timing to transition another organization to manage the Car Show was crucial”, said Jay Stoddard, Board President. “When you have the potential for 300+ cars with 66 categories to coordinate, review, vote and award in one day, the process is daunting. We (the Board) are confident that an organization will step forward to continue the tradition.”
The 42nd Annual Celebration, themed: Let the Bands Play On, begins Friday, June 23 and closes on Sunday, June 25.
