  • Oct. 18 – 20, ’24 — West Coast Rendezvous —  Merced, CA. Annual event, this year organized by the San Francisco Regional Citroën Car Club (SFRCCC). A youthful and diverse community, Merced is located in the heart of California’s agricultural Central Valley and was historically known as the “Gateway to Yosemite”. The revitalized downtown is emerging as the arts and entertainment centre of the area. Home base for the weekend will be the historic 114-room El Capitan Hotel. Designed by architect Edward T. Foulkes, whose résumé includes the grand Oakland Tribune office tower in downtown Oakland, the El Capitan was a favourite in the 1920s of Mary Pickford, America’s sweetheart of the silent film era, and her husband, Douglas Fairbanks. The hotel was renovated and completely modernized in 2021. Our group rate ranges from $139 to $165/night depending on the room selected. If you need an ADA-compliant room, please contact the hotel directly AFTER booking to ensure that they take that into account. Breakfast is not included in the room rate, but is available in either of the hotel’s two restaurants (Rainbird or the more casual Native Son), at nearby restaurants, or at the Saturday morning Farmer’s Market a block away from the hotel.

    IMPORTANT: in addition to registering for the Rendez-Vous event here: https://forms.gle/yrdFgfxBZQ7DS8tp8, you MUST separately make a hotel booking.
