September 8-12, 2021
Bend, Oregon

The West Coast Holiday is ON again!   Although we won't have a single host hotel or the traditional Concours and Awards Party, we are planning multiple outdoor events, with coordinated drives through breath-taking scenery, focusing on the cars we love and spending time with our friends and fellow 356 enthusiasts. This will be a “driving” event. Unlike previous Holidays, we cannot host large banquet dinners or other indoor events. Attendees are encouraged to book reservations (where available) or hold gatherings with their friends for dinners at area restaurants and Brew Pubs. We are closely monitoring Covid regulations in Bend that may require us to modify the planned events, so please visit back at this site from time to time. In the meantime, here is the updated information on the West Coast Holiday as of June 14, 2021.

Hotel Availability

We are happy to announce that we have negotiated very favorable rates with some great hotels in Bend. These along with AirBnB and VRBO rentals give attendees several options for your accommodations during the West Coast Holiday in September. Feel free to book your hotel rooms now, if needed, using the links provided to our recommended hotels. There is no code or secret password required to get hotel rooms. 

Completel information is available on the Hotels page.

Event Merchandise

In order to keep things simple and event costs to a minumum, there will be no SWAG bag at the West Coast Holiday. However, we have great merchandise for sale through the 356 Registry Goodie Store and is available for pre-order with delivery to the event. Some items (like grill badges) are limited in quantity and when they are gone, they’re gone. If you purchased items last year, they will be updated with the 2021 version of event logos and available for pickup at the event. You may order merchandise now for pickup at the event only; the Goodie Store is unable to ship items to you outside of the event.

Check out the selection of the 2021West Coast Holiday merchandise here.

Registration for the West Coast Holiday

Registration will hopefully open at the end of June. All registrations for the “original” 2020 event which were carried over to 2021 have been deleted, because this is a different event. The new registration process will be quick and simple and not require any payments at the time of registration. There is no hurry to sign up; get your hotel or other accomadations now and register when when the time comes.

In order to register and attend this event, you will need to have:
1) A valid email address.
2) An active 356 Registry membership

If you are not a member of the 356 Registry, take the time now to join so you can attend the Holiday!
