LCOC to Visit CA State Fair, Sacramento, on Friday, July 26; The Beach Boys Will Perform! @ CA State Fair/Expo

LCOC is invited back to the California State Fair on Friday afternoon, July 26!  If you are looking for just a great all-American experience with family and friends and a bargain to boot, this is the one to visit.

This is a totally free event.  Your registration includes free admission to the fair for as many people as we can fit in our cars.  We’re allowed to bring our own food and drinks, and they even give us a nice roped off area with a shade tent to hang out near our cars. We have in and out privileges and they’ll even give us free parking for a modern car.

We will meet at the Century Theatre, 1590 Ethan Way at 2:40 p.m.  We’ll all drive in together at 3:00.  We’ll be showing our cars near the entrance to the race track.  They’ll be protected behind ropes and we get a shade tent right there with our cars.  We are free to roam the fair and see all the exhibits.  All the buildings are air conditioned. 

The Beach Boys are playing that day, but tickets to their performance will need to be purchased.  We will drive in at 3:00 in the afternoon and stay until around 9:00 p.m. when the horse races end.  They are now starting the horse races at five.  The races start at 5:00 and run until around 9:00.  We have to stay until after the last race, when the grandstands empty out.  Tickets for The Beach Boys must be purchased separately if you decide to see the concert.  

Please RSVP to Steve Walker, email, call or text 916-833-6111 ASAP so we can let the fair know how many are coming.

The 2024 Don Frolich Memorial National Meet, Cupertino, Returns on July 28; Register Now @ Portal Park
Jul 28 @ 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

LCOC is once again teaming up with the Cadillac & LaSalle Club (CLC) and several other car groups to celebrate a wonderful mid-summer casual social event—a day of BBQ, tire kicking and fun at Portal Park, 10299 N Portal Ave. Cupertino. All LCOC Lincoln owners are invited to bring their classic cars and attend. A great mix of Lincolns, Cadillacs, LaSalles and other makes such as Buicks, Packards, Imperials, Hudsons, Pierce Arrows and several others is expected.






Known as the Don Frolich Memorial National Meet, this event had been an area staple for years, but was discontinued during Covid. Happily it returns for 2024 and gates open at 9 a.m., with the BBQ lunch scheduled for noon. For optimum enjoyment guests are advised to bring drinks, chairs, portable tables, tents or umbrellas to assure shaded comfort.

Checks and registration information are required by July 21. 

The Cupertino BBQ’s outdoor format is family friendly and kids 6 and under may attend for free. Those age 7-12 will be $17 each and adults $27. Don’t miss this fun outing!
