29th ARIZONA MILITARY VEHICLE SHOW
Each year this club holds a large military vehicle show which we have done for 29 years. It's usually held Saturday through Sunday, at the end of January. In the early days it was held at the Papago Military Museum at 52nd Street and McDowell, Phoenix. After about 9 years there we moved across the street to the National Guard gymnasium complex, also at 52nd Street and McDowell. Then we out grew that space- and the National Guard could no longer accommodate us due to operations overseas. So we moved first to Peoria Sports complex in the Arrowhead area of Glendale, AZ. Then to MetroCenter Mall at Dunlap and I-17. For 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 we held the show at Tempe Diablo Stadium's East Parking Lot in Tempe, AZ. For 2020, we are now at Turf Paradise in North Phoenix. This classic horse racing venue has one of the largest lots of asphalt in the north Phoenix suburbs. Easy access from I-17 Bell road or from the north end of the 101, take 7th Ave south to Bell road. We're going to fill that parking lot with Military vehicles.
Parking is free, but we charge a small admission of $8 for adults. Kids with adults and active military ID's are free. This is to cover the cost of the fences, tents, restrooms and minimal advertising. We do sell vendor spots in tents or out in the open. We have large spots that you can bring in your vehicle and sell from it, or smaller spots.
If you own a military vehicle and would like to display it at the show, you will get in for free and meet a bunch of MV type people. Email for details, or just show up and ask where to park! Vendor and display setup day is Friday- if you can leave your display vehicle overnight. If you want to just come Saturday for a few hours, that's good too. We are considering improvements. Let us know if you have ideas.
