Tehachapi’s “Thunder on the Mountain” Car & Truck Show August 20th 2017

Kern County's Thunder on the Mountain Car & Truck Show calls Tehachapi home

Tehachapi's Thunder on the Mountain takes place in Mid-August

Going on it’s 20th season, Kern County’s “Thunder on the Mountain” is the grand daddy of Tehachapi Car Shows. Thunder is held in mid-August every year on the same weekend as Tehachapi’s Mountain Festival. In addition to the excellent organization of this Car & Truck Show, Tehachapi’s milder climate makes Thunder one of Kern County’s premiere summer events.

Held in the Historic Downtown area, in and around Green and F Streets, Thunder on the Mountain has hosted up to 325 top quality vehicles. This is an all day show that lasts from 9am to 3pm. With food, raffles, live music and fun, thousands of people attend every year. The 20th annual event is priced at $35 ($40 at the door,) which includes entry and a t-shirt (First 150 registered.) Sponsored by the Tehachapi Car Club, Thunder on the Mountain is a fundraising event with 100 percent of the proceeds going directly to local charities and benevolent organizations, including the “Eileen McPhee Memorial Scholarship” fund (next year’s goal is to exceed the previous high of $22,000!)
