ITINERARY:

We will depart Friday April 17 at 10:30 am from south of Frederick MD (location to be provided once you register), and then together take a scenic drive northeastward along a new and fun route through the hills and valleys of Maryland and Pennsylvania toward Hershey. This year we will completely avoid the Interstate going into Harrisburg!  We'll stop along the way for lunch and then a little later we'll stop off for some ice cream before we drive the last stretch into Hershey.

After checking in at THE HOTEL HERSHEY, relax and check out the surroundings.  At about 6:30, we will meet in the lobby and head off to our traditional casual dinner Friday night April 17 at the fabulous Fenicci's!

April 18 Morning: We will caravan from the hotel after breakfast to the Swap Meet  where we will try to get there early enough (before 9 am or so) so people who are not displaying (or selling) their car in the Corral can park together and wave the Potomac banner. Concours entrants should also head over there early to get your desired spot. Enjoy the festivities, eat some corndogs and funnel cake, and buy that key fob for your 928 you've been looking for 1992, or have a look at that single-seal IMS-equipped engine block from a 996 you were hoping to decorate your mancave with. And remember, this is the only Drive and Dine event where you can arrive in one Porsche and go home in another!


 

Depending on how long you are at the Swap Meet, you might have time to enjoy the hotel's amenities (like the pool, golf, archery, etc., and something called the Chocolate Spa). Or visit attractions, all with a chocolate theme.  There is rumored to also some kind of theme park in Hershey........ 

Saturday night, we’ll enjoy our traditional business-casual dinner at the Mill of Hershey at 7:30 pm.

April 19 - Sunday morning, enjoy breakfast and for those of you who registered,  we will head out from the Hotel about 9:30 (tentative) for the Antique Automobile Club of America Museum.Hershey2 Admission is $12 (paid on site), including a guided tour for our group.  Visit their "Age of Aquarius"  exhibit to visit various counterculture vehicles of the 60s, and conversely you can also see historic police cars of the same era (how's that for taking care of all customers).....plus they will have a DeSOTO display and their permanent TUCKER exhibit (for those of few of you who are into rear-engine cars....oh wait),  And  of course, Forest Gump's bus is there along with their BUS exhibits (the latter all crammed into one basement!) and Whitney Houston's limo,  plus we may get lucky and see the Hershey Kissmobile out front.......

After the museum, those who are interested may enjoy a stragglers lunch at the Troeg brewhouse, or feel free to do some stuff in Hershey at your leisure, or head on home.

Signup is open now through April 13.  However, you must make your Hotel Hershey reservation by March 6.  We have a limited number of rooms.

Great cars, great roads, great fun and all with great people!

Please join us for one of our Drive and Dine traditions, meet fellow car enthusiasts, make new friends and remake old friends.
