Porsche Club of America is one of the most active car clubs with over 140,000 members and they put on some fun events!
PCA Treffen North America Tour
It is now called Treffen but used to be called Escape. Treffen is German for “getting together”. It happens twice a year and attracts between 200-400 Porsches. It is a non competitive touring event.
BCIR was proud to have the event in 2010 at SunPeaks Resort outside of Kamloops BC.
It was the first time the event was held in Canada.

PCA Porsche Parade
It happens once a year and is the big Porsche Club event drawing members from all across North America. It is a week of competitive events, to socialize and enjoy their cars with seminars and tours. Parades are typically held in the summer, and each year the Parade moves to a different part of the country.
Parade Locations – Past and Present:
The term “Parade” evolved in August 1956, when 64 enthusiastic entrants gathered at a suburban Washington, D.C. motel for four days of Porsche enjoyment and friendship. A “parade” of Porsches through the countryside caused everyone to refer to the event as the Parade and the name has stuck. Besides entrants, representatives from the Porsche factory in Stuttgart, and from Porsche Cars North America also attend, along with numerous automotive-related spokespeople.

PCA European Treffen
In the 1960’s the fledgling Porsche Club of America arranged charter flights for its members to Germany. When PCA members arrived at the Stuttgart airport, Porsche AG had dozens of 356s lined up, awaiting their new owners. Today, PCA Treffen Tours are designed to provide PCA members with the total, all-inclusive Porsche experience in Germany.
