Appalachian Adventure - 2016

Event Type: 

The Appalachian Region - Porsche Club of America announces Appalachian Adventure-2016 at the Fontana Village Resort, Fontana Dam, North Carolina, August 12-14, 2016. This new event promises to be a true fun-filled, laid-back weekend in the cool breezy mountains of western North Carolina - right in the middle of some of the best driving roads in the country. The Appalachian Adventure offers a great blend of driving, sightseeing, tire kicking, and socializing, with over 65 Porsches expected for the event. Porsche Asheville is the primary sponsor for the event.

Register at from 3/1/16 through 6/15/16.

Highlights of this special weekend include:

  • People’s Choice Concours on the resort grounds. Awards are planned for 9± classes (depending on the vehicles registered) plus Best of Show. Voting will be by registered participants.
  • Tours, tours, and more tours! Roads in the area are simply the best around. We will offer a guided tour (scenic, at a relaxed pace) on Friday afternoon and a drive early Sunday morning (where we will tackle some challenging asphalt with a focus on the road/drive.) A number of self-guided tours will be available to nearby destinations that you’ll find interesting and scenic.
  • Socializing with fellow Porsche owners at a Friday night kickoff mixer and optional BBQ. Saturday events include lunch and Concours, complimentary wine tasting, and evening awards dinner. An optional guided Fontana Lake cruise will be available on Saturday afternoon.
  • Charity raffle of a variety of valuable automotive items and accessories. Participation is limited to registered participants with all raffle proceeds to benefit MANNA FoodBank.
  • Porsche historic and technical quiz is on the agenda with an award to the top finisher.
  • Goodie Store featuring Appalachian Region - PCA and manufacturer merchandise/garments will be open. Other suppliers on site will feature displays including new Porsche vehicles from Porsche Asheville.
