The rallye is moving this year to Diamond Don’s campground 1 mile north of Jefferson on Highway 49. This is a beautiful campground located in the woods of East Texas. It is only 1 mile from Jefferson with all its antique shops, stores, and restaurants. The campground sits on 100 acres and has 50 RV hook ups along with a dump station. There are clean restrooms and free Wi-Fi. The center of the campground has a huge covered pavilion with a stage, sound system, lighting, and a bar with a fridge. The pavilion will be operating hub of the rallye where we will have the awards ceremony and dinner Saturday night. It has seating for 200 people. There are sprinklers throughout the campground which makes it a nice grassy location with no dust. There is a campground PA system as well. A river runs along the western edge of the campground which is also the route for Don’s vintage train that can be boarded in downtown Jefferson. This location has a large central open area that is perfect for our new field events being held on Friday and for our traditional bike show and rolling concours to be held on Saturday. As an added attraction there is a fenced in alligator pit! We are very excited to be able to move our successful rallye to this new location that will enable us to grow and add more events. Please pass this along to everyone you know and invite them to the rallye. Feel free to contact me for more information.

Billed as Europe's largest vintage vehicle market and technical show, the first one was in 1975. Due to the popularity of the event, there are two Veterama events - now April and October. These events have saved countless vintage and antique vehicles from being lost; the availability of parts and knowledge breathes new life into many historical vehicles.
Hours are 8:30a-6:00p on Saturday and 8:30a-4:00p on Sunday. Tickets start at 12 euros per day with reduced rates for multiple days. Parking is available. Insider tickets can be purchased to allow access on Friday from 12:00p-8:00p.
