I bought a ’30 Ford wagon and we call it a woody (Surf City, here we come) You know it’s not very cherry, it’s an oldie but a goody (Surf City, here we come) – Jan & Dean
Come to Santa Cruz and meet the Woodie, the original late ’20s to the ’50s, “boring ol’ station wagon.” In the ’60s, the Santa Cruz beach kids realized it’s cheap, roomy and great for hauling surf boards; ergo, an American icon was born.
Explore Northern California’s largest woodie show that features more than 200 stylish, pre-1952 wood-bodied cars.
2017 Surf City Classic: Woodies on the Wharf
Saturday, June 24, 2017 | 10 am to 3:30 pm
Santa Cruz Wharf
At the 23rd annual Woodies on the Wharf, over 200 of these beasts have been restored to their very cherry condition with beautiful wood paneling and all of the period details. The show is free to gawk at and there will be music, T-shirts, memorabilia and prize drawings. Stroll the wharf and enjoy dozens of Wharf shops and restaurants and stellar coastal views while you soak up the sun and beauty of Northern California’s premier woodie show.
The Parade off the Wharf begins promptly at 3:30 pm. This is a highlight of the show both for Woodie owners and for the thousands of people who come to the wharf to see the cars.
