“Goldendale Has Always Been A Car Town”
Goldendale is All About Cool Cars.
With the Oregon Trail Rally in May & November, the Goldendale Motorsports Association Show ‘n Shine car show in in July, the car show in nearby Bickleton in September, and finally the popular Concours de Maryhill in early October, visitors can feast their eyes on old classics, shining muscle cars, and watch the rally cars speed along back roads from spring through the fall.
Yep, we like our cars, especially when they kick up some dust. The smooth Maryhill Loops road is a favorite too, so bring your car and enjoy the ride.
The Oregon Trail Rally Comes to Goldendale
Since 2017, the Oregon Trail Rally headquarters in Goldendale twice each year to race the back roads with headliners such as Travis Pastrana, Ken Block and up to 75 other rally teams. For the first time, in November of 2021, the rally kicked off with a car show on Main Street to the delight of hundreds of fans.
