Hi Fellow member’s of KKOA, past, present, and never joined yet. Since you’ll see the flyer below, I need not tell you that this is super exciting news to share with you. News that I hope you will consider passing the word around, and most importantly supporting this event.

Due to the fact that there is so many different styles of car and truck related show events, it’s tough to find a location site for KKOA to stage an event at. We here at KKOA respect all other car events and will not book on top of, or close to events like KKOA projects. It’s just not the KKOA way.

With that said, I’m happy to announce that KKOA has secured a small, but kool town in the beautiful smokey mountains of N. Carolina, called Maggie Valley. A kool kustom name, like Kustom Kemps. And, the grassy Festival Grounds show site looks like it’s kustom built for all pre-1969 knock-out kool kustoms, leadsleds, and hotrods to cruise around in and hang-out on.

It gets even better with a big nice stage for concerts, contests, and awards, a food concession stand, permanent restrooms, and lots of electric for vendors. Plus, if you’re lucky enough to get a room at the Comfort Inn, (828) 926-9106, that’ll be the event headquarters, it’s only a 100 yards from the Festival grounds. There’s also other mom & pop lodging’s in Maggie Valley, and just (8) miles down the road is Waynesville, N. C., a nice size town.

Check out Maggie Valley on your map, or computer, it’s on the border of N. Carolina and Tenn., surrounded by lots of big and little towns and cities. Example: 31 miles from Ashville, N.C., 27 from Gatlinburg, Tenn., 31 from Pigeon Forge, Tenn. and Dollywood. Lodging is a big deal in the area due to so many vacationer’s.

 Also, Maggie Valley is home to the “Wheels Through Time Museum”, filled with the worlds premier collection of rare American Vintage motorcycle’s.

 KKOA is proud to be in Maggie Valley, and hope to remain there for year’s to come. We are also on a fantastic spring weekend of the year, (May 18-19), Fri. & Sat. Like any event it’s only as successful as the stars of the event who come and support it, and hopefully like it. These stars being the owners of mild-to-wild kustomized cars and trucks, the traditional tail-draggin’ chopped-top leadsleds, and the wind in your face hotrod roadsters, coupe’s and sedans. Real hotrodding in it’s purist form. Hope you can make it.
