We’ve come to the close of another great West Coast Subaru Show. The dust has settled, the crowds have parted, and the staff is catching up on some much needed sleep.
At the end of it all this year we set some record numbers. We had a total of 400 cars at the show and a full 600 people attending. It was an incredible showing of support and we are proud to have had all of you as a part of the show.
Subaru of America pulled out all the stops this year and not only sponsored show grounds and brought out a BRZ to show off, they also graced us with the unveiling of the brand new 2013 Subaru XV Cross Trek. Thanks guys!
Camping went better than in just about any year past. You guys were well behaved, cleaned up spotlessly on Sunday, and didn’t keep us up all night. We can’t thank you all enough for minding your manners in the campgrounds this year.
We managed to sell out of nearly every last shirt and sold more raffle tickets than in any year past. The raffle was a great success this year, thanks in large part to all of our vendors that made an incredible showing. You guys brought some beautiful cars, contributed some huge things to the raffle, and wonderful product to show off.
The mud pit turned out to be everything we could ask for, and then some. We’ll have to try hard to not be too spoiled by how incredible this mud pit was in years to come. Congratulations to the winner of the mud drags, and to anyone who lost body pieces in the mud.
Thanks to Dave and his crew for bringing out the Go Karts this year. It was very nice to have a real track set up for everyone to race on. I hope you all got a chance to get out there.
Food turned out spectacular this year. We’ve always worked very hard in the past to get vendors to believe us on how many people we have and bring enough food for everyone, and always had trouble with getting it done. The guys at Gabrielle’s fire really pulled it off (even if they were 15 minutes late) and brought out plenty of great food. Dante of Dante’s Inferno himself came out to serve you guys hot dogs, made some great food, and had a blast himself. You may have seen him hanging around the show later in the evening.
Again, we appreciate every one of you. The show would not be possible without such a great community to support the show. We thank all of our sponsors, vendors, and volunteers for making this possible.
As always, we are open to any suggestions or concerns, we do ask that if you have any you email them to us at WestCoastSubaruShow@gmail.com.
Thanks everyone! We’ll see you all next year!

Can we have Campfires? No. Grounds is under a burn ban. BBQ’s are permitted.
Do I need to bring anything for Registration? No. As long as you have pre-registered you are in our system. We will only need your name, or your number from the confirmation email.
Do we need helmets? Gokarts will have loaners. Mudpit does not require helmets, just proper restraints. However, this does not mean bringing a helmet wouldn’t be a bad idea.
Can I bring my dog? Is your dog well behaved around 100’s of people and loud running cars? If they are, they are more than welcome. If you have any doubts about how they will handle crowds or cars… for their safety and ours, please leave them at home.
Where do I pay for camping? Camping is paid on site at the gate when you arrive.
Do I have my own camping site? We are camping field style, and there is no site designations.
I didn’t order a shirt / glass, but really want one! We will have shirts and glasses for sale at the show.
I didn’t pre-register, can I still come? Yes! It will take just a minute of your time to fill out the registration sheet at the gate, but otherwise its the same cost as pre-registering. However, you do miss out on our awesome goodie bag.
It’s that time of year again. Spring is upon us, and summer is fast approaching. The sound of Subarus converging on a sleepy little northwest town is creeping near. We’ve chosen our site carefully this year, and settled on the small town of Port Townsend, home to the http://www.jeffcofairgrounds.com
Official dates: August 17th to the 19th. As always, Friday is set up for camping. Saturday is the main event, show, mud pit, raffles etc. and Sunday is pack up and go home.
This fairgrounds has much to offer;
-Plentiful camping, and options for more removed camping from the masses.
-An onsite mud pit, and mud drags lanes. (Yes, we have worked out the glorious return of the mudpit!)
-Outdoor covered vendor booths (That will face and combine with the show this year!)
-Plenty of room for activities.-Also sounds like we’ve got a lot of good options for food vendorship this year, which has always been tough in the past.
We look forward to seeing you all there!

Ladies and Gentlemen!
It is that time of year again. The much anticipated West Coast Subaru Show is making it’s grand return for the 13th year running.
With much deliberation, we settled on a location for this years show. It may seem familiar to many, for it is the same location as WCSS 11. We are going back to Skamania County Fair Grounds. This site was, in all the years of this shows history, one of the most accommodating and best run grounds that we have ever worked with. The location is spectacular and central between Washington and Oregon (Which hail a majority of the show attendance). It is a wonderful scenic drive to get there, wheather you approach on the Washington side along highway 14 or the Oregon side on the more direct Interstate 84, you will not be disappointed in the views.
The show will be held August 27th-28th. As usual we will have camping on the Friday before the show, but the main show will be Saturday, and Sunday will be the usual pack up, clean up, and drive home.
There are a few final details to work out, and we will keep you guys posted as the get solidified. We look forward to seeing you all there.
The West Cost Subaru Show Planning Committee
Hey Subaru Fans!
WCSS 12 has officially drawn to a close. Everyone has made it home and shaken the camping dust off their clothes (for the most part). We the organizers are just waking up from recouping lost sleep. This years show certainly did not go off without a hitch, but we still managed to make it one of the best shows we have held to date. A total of 276 cars registered for the show, 176 tents registered to camp, and more fans than could be counted came and went throughout the weekend. That makes this the largest West Coast Subaru Show ever. Kudos to you guys on the awesome showing. There were some amazing cars at the show this year, and some amazing people along with them. We the planners are always humbled and honored to be a part of such an incredible event full of so many wonderful people.
A special thanks to the campers: Upon leaving the campsite Sunday we came to find the site absolutely spotless. Not more than a couple pieces of trash were beyond the trash cans, nothing was left behind. The bathrooms were left clean (someone even mopped up the water on the floor in the ladies room from the leaking sink! You rock.)
Thanks again to everyone that has supported us and the show through the years. It’s always a pleasure to see all the returning fans every year and all the new faces with every new show.
We do still have some merchandise available for sale. We re-ordered some shirts, so we have all sizes available. Smalls, Mediums, Larges, XL, and 2XL.
We have a lot of glasses still available.
You can purchase shirts and glasses from our online store
You can also email us if you have any merchandise questions, or comments on the show at Westcoastsubarushow@gmail.com
Thanks again for a great show! We’ll see everyone next year!

The fires near Cashmere seem to be under control thanks to some good fire fighters and a damp weekend. Good news for us!
We are proud to announce we are going to have River City Catering on site on Saturday. They will be providing Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. Bring cash!
We are also proud to announce an ALL NEW award for this years WCSS, the Smart Choice Award. One of our first ever awards with a cash payout of $100! Thanks to Smart Service for sponsoring this award. Find out out more about the Smart Choice Award, and the other classes we will be awarding trophies in here.
There is a wildfire burning near Cashmere, WA in the Nahahum Canyon. The fire crews are using the fairgrounds as their base camp at the moment. We are unsure at the moment how and if this will affect the show, but if changes have to be made we’ll get the word out as soon as possible.
Let us all hope for the peoples homes that are out there that the fire crews can put this fire out soon, and that the show can go on as planned!
