Saturday evening there is a VIP reception that will grant attendees access to the 2020 Corvette Stingray in the flesh. In addition to seeing the C8 live, attendees will have a chance to mix and mingle with Corvette community members and #influencers.

Sunday morning folks can join Constellation Rally on a drive from Pasadena to the Petersen, where the museum will hold a Corvette-themed Cruise-In. I won’t be able to attend due to my monthly Carcadia at Route 66 cars and coffee — but I will be encouraging our regulars with ‘Vettes to make the drive.

  • Sunday, July 28 at 7:30 a.m. –  Three iconic Corvettes from the Petersen collection will take part in the rally
