Porsches in Shenandoah Valley The Shenandoah Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA) is dedicated to enjoying Porsche cars in central Virginia. While Porsches are the common element, our members provide the club with variety and enthusiasm. We organize scenic driving tours, run six autocrosses each year, and take part in high-performance driver's education (DE) events at the Virginia International Raceway and other tracks. Our premier event is the Richmond Porsche Meet (RPM), a June weekend including a concours, lunch, driving tour, tech session, banquet, and an autocross at the Southside Speedway. We also hold a Christmas party and several other social meetings annually.

Nonmembers are welcome to participate in a social meeting, a driving tour, or an autocross. Learn more about the Shenandoah Region PCA and our upcoming events, the PCA Zone 2 comprising 10 nearby regions, the national PCA, and how to JOIN PCA.

Nemacolin/Fallingwater Tour:

Now's Your Chance to Join the 2018 Nemacolin / Fallingwater Tour (sponsored by Potomac Region!). This popular event from July 5 — 8 combines an enjoyable drive to Pennsylvania's Laurel Highlands, either 2 or 3 nights at the incredibly beautiful Nemacolin Resort, fine dining, scenic drives, and for those who have never seen them — a jawdropping tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's legendary Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob homes.

The Nemacolin resort is one of only six hotels and resorts in the world to host Forbes Five-Star, AAA Five-Diamond lodging and dining, and has been upgraded continuously over the past decade. For this year we have once again negotiated a $279 per night room rate (not including taxes / resort fees) in the luxurious Chateau Lafayette building, a substantial savings over the rack rate.

For those who have not been on this trip before, it is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy yourself and your Porsche in the mountains and to meet other Club Members and Porsche enthusiasts. In the past, this has been one of the biggest overnight gatherings in the Region, with upwards of 30–40 vehicles and around 70 attendees. And remember — Nemacolin has a dog spa (Nemacolin Wooflands) and many family activities!

For those who would like to make it a three-day weekend, we will organize a group for a scenic drive from the Frederick area toward Nemacolin on Thursday, July 5. The group will meet for cocktails that night, and a driving/touring day to some of the nearby resort towns on Friday. For those coming up on Nemacolin on Friday, July 6, we will organize a group to take a scenic drive from Northern Virginia.

More information on the tour and hotel as well as well as registration is at For any questions, please contact

Your tour registration fee will include our Friday night BBQ on the deck of Mulligan's clubhouse overlooking the Golf Course, as well as a nice tour garment. You will be expected to show up in your finest casual Porsche finery, with an award provided for the most Porsche-bedecked person as voted on by the attendees, who, it is warned, may or may not be in various states of inebriation. So break out your Porsche socks, watches and tattoos (!?). You will also be able to register online for a Saturday tour of Kentuck Knob and a Sunday tour of Fallingwater (group discount rates).

Saturday night dinner will be on your own but we will make reservations at several venues on and off the hotel grounds so different groups will be able to dine together.

The registration cost for 2018 will be $125 per person (discounted $15 from last year) which covers the Friday BBQ dinner, as well as an official commemorative souvenir article of clothing! Kentuck Knob tour fees are $20 per person and Fallingwater tour fees are $25 per person, both representing substantial discounts over the purchase of single tickets. Advance registration is required by June 5 in order to ensure adequate planning for tours and the dinner. We will charge credit cards on file for this event on June 13.

PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO BOOK YOUR HOTEL ROOM AT NEMACOLIN IMMEDIATELY! To book your room, please call Nemacolin reservations at (800) 422-2736 and press "2" which will get you to a hotel-based operator instead of the outsourced operator who does not have the block information. Our room block is reserved under "Porsche Club", and you can also state the group code of ID # 10D30C. Hotel reservations can be made through June 6 unless the block goes more quickly. While at the resort, participants have the choice of participating in one or more activities, including golf, a mountain drive, and a Clay Shooting Tournament. There is also ziplining, an art collection, the animal park, off-roading, and more. Guests can also just relax and enjoy the spa, blow their earnings at the casino, and enjoy other hotel facilities. Check out (Note that extra fees may apply for the above activities.)

Porsche Parade:

The 63rd annual Porsche Parade will take place on July 8–14 at the Lake of the Ozarks Tan-Tar-A Resort. For all the details, see the Parade website.
