5 Reasons Why You Should Start Making Your Plans Now For The 2012 Porsche Parade
The 2012 Porsche Parade Will Be Held From July 8 -14, 2012
Salt Lake City Utah is the place to be this July for the Porsche Club of America’s national convention. “Crossroads of the West” as the city is affectionately named, has all the amenities of a major metropolitan area; the friendliness and warm hospitality of a small Western city; remarkable history; and unparalleled access to natural recreation (21 national parks and monuments within a few hours’ drive). The city is on land that was once covered by the prehistoric Lake Bonneville. Towering Wasatch Mountains frame this beautiful, safe and vibrant mountain setting.
Salt Lake City will be the perfect destination and backdrop for a Porsche enthusiasts’ “Dream Week.” For more information on what to see and do in Salt Lake City beyond Parade activities click here:

Aside from Rennsport reunion which only happens every four years or so, the Porsche parade is the biggest gathering of Porsches and Porsche people and it happens EVERY YEAR! Thousands of like-minded enthusiasts attend beautiful Porsche-filled destinations.
Reason 2- It’s a great family vacation
Although the Porsche Parade has been held consecutively for over 50 years, we only recently discovered all of the family fun and enjoyment it provides. Last year we had such a great time, we decided this year to make it our yearly family vacation. Each year the Parade is held in a different City, and makes for great fun and excitement.
Reason 3 – The Cars!
What more can be said about that? The annual Porsche parade hosts thousands of Porsche cars of all types.
