Summer heats up at Vail HQ with June events

As COVID-19 restrictions begin to relax, more and more in-person events are returning throughout the Temecula Valley and at Vail Headquarters, 32115 Temecula Parkway, summer is beginning to heat up with a plethora of events designed to be fun for the entire family.

Rebecca Farnbach, past president of the Temecula Valley Historical Society said she is looking forward to the return of in-person programming at Vail Headquarters.

"What a satisfying feeling to reopen Vail HQ without restrictions, to move about freely and to exchange smiles," she said.

Farnbach cautioned that even with the state fully reopening there will still be precautions in place to protect those in attendance.

"We will still be cautious with how close in proximity we are to each other and we will be respectful to those who still feel they must wear masks," she said.

The summer events lineup kicks off this weekend with a VW club meet up Friday, June 4, from 6-9 p.m. Members of the club will park their cars on property during the event allowing for VW aficionados to come by and see a variety of one of Southern California's favorite cars. The event will be repeated Friday, June 18.

Then Saturday, June 5, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. there will be a Swap+Shop. Residents and visitors alike are welcome to the community swap meet where visitors can peruse goods while they look for those one-of-a-kind items for themselves or as a gift for others.

For those looking for some good family fun, Sunday, June 6, will be Vail Headquarters' weekly family event, Sunday Funday. Complete with vendors, food, train rides and demonstrations, Sunday Funday is a guaranteed good time. The event, which will also be held June 13, 20, and 27, runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Movie lovers should head over to Vail Headquarters Friday, June 11, at 8 p.m. for an outdoor viewing of the movie, "Love and Monsters," rated PG13. Remember to bring some chairs for this free event.

The Thistle & Sage Vegan Market will return to Vail HQ Saturday, June 19, from 2-7 p.m. when Thistle & Sage Marketplace brings favorite vegan foods, makers, and more together in one place for an afternoon of sweet treats, live music, artisan vendors, workshops and more.

Starlight Bazaar at Vail HQ will take place Friday, June 25, from 6 to 10 p.m. The monthly vendor market will feature a DJ, street performers and will be fun for the entire family.

New this year at Vail HQ will be Monday historical programs brought to life by the Temecula Valley Historical Society.

The first program in the series, "Two Women Who Dared," takes place Monday, June 28, at 6 p.m. and features Bonnie Martland and Karen Michaud who will depict the stories of Alva Vanderbilt Belmont and Alice Paul who were suffragists 100 years ago.

"The topics will vary between actors impersonating historical Temecula characters to a talk about meteors and meteorites," Farnbach said of the series.
