Turkey Run Brings Thanksgiving Fun

Get your rooms booked now at Sea Shells Beach Club for Daytona’s wildly popular Turkey Run event Thanksgiving weekend.

From November 26-29, Daytona will once again welcome the largest combined car show and auto swap meet in the USA, the 42nd Annual Daytona Turkey Run.

Car enthusiasts from across the U.S. and internationally make their way to racing’s most celebrated location, the Daytona International Speedway.

Attendees enjoy more than 6,000 vintage, classic, muscle cars, race cars and trucks for show and sale. The show also includes more than 2,500 swap meet spaces, Artisan Alley, food and entertainment.

Stunning classic cars are everywhere at the Turkey Run.

One of the best features of the event is that in its 41 years, more than $7 million of the profits have funded charitable organizations as well as many local programs, projects and recreational facilities.

The Turkey Run is full of special events, including a rockabilly tribute show and the Dream Build garage, where a team of professionals build a 1955 Chevy in four days.

At the Swap Meet, find new and used auto accessories, clothing, gifts and more.

Find your way to the new Artisan Alley, a fashion and arts bazaar with something for everyone.

Who knows? If you drove into Sea Shells Beach Club with one car, you might leave with another from the Car Corral, where more than 1,000 cars for sale are lined up with owners eager to sell.

There’s even a Little Gobbler’s Play Zone for the kids with bounce houses games and more.

Tickets can be purchased online or at the event. Sea Shells Beach Club is the perfect place to stay close to all the action, but book your room now, they’ll be going fast.
