Goodguys Releases 2023 Event Schedule

Goodguys Rod & Custom Association has revealed its 2023 show schedule, which will also include a new series of events held in a two-day format, the organization announced.

The upcoming 40th-anniversary 2023 Goodguys season will feature 12 three-day National events and two two-day Get-Togethers in Pleasanton, California, Goodguys’ original headquarters. All 14 events are scheduled as close to their traditional weekends as possible, with no venue changes for the upcoming season, the organization said.

Each of the 14 events will include burnout competitions, kids’ zones, live entertainment and more while showcasing hot rods, muscle cars, customs, classics and trucks from 1998 and prior, Goodguys repersentatives said. Additionally, all 12 National events will incorporate All-American Sunday, welcoming all-American-made or -powered vehicles of all years into the event.

In addition to the 14-event schedule, 2023 will see the addition of an all-new show format for Goodguys which will include a series of two-day events to be hosted in additional cities across the United States. The all-new series of events aims to increase accessibility to more automotive enthusiasts across America and provide an opportunity for participation by local communities, car builders, car clubs, enthusiasts and more, the event organizers said. Individual show features will include cruising, gatherings at local points of interest, build shops and collections, live music, parties and more. Dates, cities and details for the new localized event series will be announced in the coming months.

“We’re excited to get back to the roots of hot-rod gatherings and really interact with these communities on a deeper level,” said Andrew Ebel, COO of Goodguys. “Curating our list of large-scale events in 2023 allows us to spend our energy expanding into some huge car markets that we haven’t previously been able to reach and really welcome more of our membership and fanbase into the Goodguys family.”

Additionally, the Summer Get-Together in Pleasanton, California, the Great Northwest Nationals in Spokane, Washington and the So-Cal Nationals in Del Mar, California, have been removed from the event calendar.
