The Rock 'n Rods on 66 Festival will feature an Exhibits Hall curated by celebrated Illinois historian and author John Weiss, winner of the John Steinbeck Award. John organized the Exhibits Hall for previous Rock 'n Rods festivals and has contacts across the country including all eight Route 66 states. Route 66 Magazine will anchor the exhibit Hall where festival goers will have the opportunity to meet the founders and publishers of Route 66 Magazine, Paul and Sandi Taylor who will be offering back issues and other merchandise for sale. Route 66 Magazine has founded in 1993. Mr Weiss expects to bring representatives of the Route 66 Associations of all eight Route 66 states as well as collectors displaying memorabilia. Other Special Exhibits are being planned to be announced.
Vintage Campers will be a feature attraction at the Rock 'n Rods on 66 Festival. Retro Camper manufacturers and accessory vendors will be arrayed in a Vintage Camper Midway. Grouped together with the vendors will be a Vintage Camper Show where owners and entusiasts will display their personal Vintage Campers. Whether its "canned hams" or sleek aluminum streamliners, there will be the best and most creative on display.
