A Car Parked In A Field

Turkey Rod Run

The Turkey Rod Run is a very popular car event held in racing's most celebrated location - Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach. This event occurs twice a year, once during the Spring, on the 4th weekend of March, and again during Thanksgiving Weekend in November. The 47-year-old event is one of the largest in the United States and it showcases more than 7,000 vintage, classic, and custom vehicles. 

This four-day event for car enthusiasts will start on Thanksgiving Day and continue through Sunday with all safety precautions in place for your comfort and enjoyment. It will feature one of the largest swap meets with traders trying to buy and sell hard-to-find auto parts, a Car Corral where you will see thousands of vintage, classic, muscle cars, trucks and other wheeled vehicles displayed for show and purchase as well as handmade arts, crafts, and fashion. 

This year, the Turkey Rod Run will be a little different from the previous years in that it will be held with a number of safety precautions and protocols in-place. Watch the cars drive down the main road, as part of the parade which is fun for the whole family to enjoy. During this parade of hot rod classic cars, you will be safely distanced from other people and still catch a glimpse of these stunning vintage vehicles. 

Take your family out to look at the old cars after a delicious Thanksgiving dinner, and enjoy a memorable experience with your loved ones. Check out over 2,500 Swap Meet spaces, an Artisans Alley, and enjoy live entertainment. The Turkey Rod Run is sure to give you and your families many happy memories to take back home. Attend this fun event with your family when you stay at Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Resort. We hope you make it your new tradition this year and moving forward!
