The annual Thunderfest Car Show and Music Festival is coming to downtown Covina for another year of hot rods, brews, burgers, shopping, and family fun! This is the 22nd year of our annual event and we're expecting more people than last year! Here's a quick guide on how to make the most of your day.
Arrive on Time
There's tons of free parking available in Downtown Covina. Use our parking map to find the best spot. We also have $10 Preferred Parking that puts you at the heart of the festival as soon as you step out of your car.
Walk the Whole Citrus Ave.
Start on Badillo and Citrus and make your way north to see every car. Or, if you're starting on San Bernardino and Citrus, head south towards Badillo and you won't miss a thing. You don't want to miss out on the car of your dreams or the perfect instagram opportunity! The car owners are always friendly and happy to talk with you about their customizations and all the hard work they put in, so ask questions.
Head To Vendor's Row On College
Not only will all of our shops, restaurants, and bars be open, but you can also visit the vendors on College Street, just East of Citrus Ave. Browse through antiques, sports collectibles, clothes, jerseys, books, hobbies and gifts, makeup, home goods, or even buy a car from one of our sponsors!
Beer, Wine, & Food Garden
Head over to the Beer, Wine, and Gourmet Food Garden on Citrus Ave. and San Bernardino St. Taking place at Heritage Park (you can't miss it!) this garden of deliciousness is full of local beer, wine, and great food. Just purchase tickets at the front for beer and wine servings from the local breweries, wineries, and restaurants.
It's Not Over Until You Say It's Over!
The Thunderfest Car Show and Music Festival ends at 9pm but your evening doesn't have to! Beat the traffic and take refuge in one of our restaurants or bars that are open late night. Try some gourmet burgers, homemade meatballs, Mexican, Greek, sushi, or classic Italian. And if you're already full, just hang out at one of our bars.
