Rumble in the Bay is one of the most eagerly awaited car shows of the summer in the Pacific Northwest. This year we are celebrating the Porsche, in honor of the 60th anniversary of the Porsche 911. We're located in Bigfork, Montana on Flathead Lake, a beautiful village on the bay. Bigfork closes off its main street, Electric Avenue, for the annual Rumble in the Bay Car Show. Participants from near and far roll into town with their beautiful vehicles. Crowds arrive in the early morning hours for food, drinks, and a relaxing stroll through town to enjoy and appreciate the vintage cars, trucks, and motorcycles on display. Preregistration is $25, through Friday, September 1st. Late, or day of registration is $40. Day of vehicle line up is first come first serve. There is no place holding. If you are part of a car club or want to park with friends, you all must arrive together. This event goes on rain or shine, no refunds.
