There’s a LOT going on at the Goodguys 12th Great Northwest Nationals August 16-18 at the Spokane County Fair & Expo Center in Spokane, Washington! In addition to a fun-filled weekend of rods, customs & classics, several new items are on the menu for this year’s event!

In conjunction with hunger relief organization 2nd Harvest, Goodguys will conduct a special “Food Drive Friday” promotion, Friday, August 16th. Fans who bring two cans of food to the tickets gates on 8/16 will get a $3 discount on event admission. One discount per donation and this offer is only valid Friday, August 16th!

The Food Drive is a first for Goodguys. “We continually look for ways to give back to the communities we visit,” said Goodguys Great Northwest Nationals Event Director Betsy Bennett. “The Spokane community as well as the entire inland Northwest has always been such great supporters of our event. We wanted to do something to help feed the hungry – something that everyone could participate in and help a great cause.”
