2017 Car Show Instructions for Registered Vehicle Owners

Thank you SO much for registering your vehicle for the 4th Annual Benedict Castle Concours on March 26th benefiting Teen Challenge. We are so excited you will be joining us for this amazing day. Here’s how check in will be handled this year. We’ve made it as simple as possible for you!

The physical address for the Benedict Castle is:
5445 Chicago Avenue
Riverside, CA 92507


We are asking that if possible, place your cars at the Castle on Saturday. Our facility is not “trailer friendly” so please trailer them in on Saturday. Parking will be from 10am to 4pm. We have trailer parking off site at the First Baptist Church (see map) at 5500 Alessandro.

Saturday you will be given your Check in Packet and Goodie Bag upon arrival at our gate on Chicago Ave. Attached to the front of the big packet will be a neon card with the LOT your vehicle is assigned to for the event. You will show this bright neon card to the parking crew who will direct you to the appropriate lot.

  • There will be security all night for trailers at the Baptist Church lot on Alessandro
  • There will be security all night on the Castle grounds with the gates locked for all vehicles parked there
  • The sprinklers will be turned off for 3 days before the show
  • You can cover your car overnight (which we encourage)

Also you will be able to attend the Saturday Evening Gala Honoring the incredible work of Teen Challenge in the Castle Courtyard beginning at 6pm with hors d’oeuvres. Tickets are still available and may be purchased online.


Trailers will begin unloading at 6:00 am and must be off the grounds by 6:30 am. There will be a shuttle to bring you back. The non-trailered cars will begin parking at 7 am. A runner will ask you at the gate the last name of the registrant, and the driver will then be given that specific vehicle’s Check In Packet and Goodie Bag. Each car will have it’s own packet. Attached to the front of the big packet will be a neon card with the LOT your vehicle is assigned for the event. Your car will then be admitted onto the grounds and the parking crew will direct you to your specific lot. Please hold up the neon sign with your lot in a visible spot so the parking crew can direct you.

Included in the Check In Packet:

  • Customized presentation license plate for each car
  • Welcome letter from Nicole and and schedule of events
  • Program
  • Map
  • Exhibitor badges and lanyards
  • High Tea & Fashion Show Tickets (if purchased in advance)
  • Castle Tour Tickets (if purchased in advance)
  • Petersen VIP Pavilion Badges and lanyards (if purchased in advance). You will also receive a red wristband. You need to have both to get in.

Included at Check In is one Goodie bag for each vehicle registered. Hats, T-shirts, High Tea Tickets, Petersen VIP Pavilion tickets, and Castle Tour tickets can be purchased the day of the event at the entrance to the Castle and the Gift Shop.

If you would like to purchase any additional tickets in advance you may do so here.

We are truly grateful that you have taken the time to come out and support our event. We realize the work it takes to get your vehicle “Show Car” ready! That is why you are the most important people at the show and we aim to treat you well. Don’t forget to stop and talk to some of the students in the red t-shirts. Their stories will touch your heart.

If you need to contact us please do so at CrossroadsCarShows@gmail.com
The phone number for reaching us is 949-877-9336 but please understand the line will be very busy. Any person at the front gate, including Janet, will be able to answer any further questions. Let’s have a great safe day and remember 100% of the money raised is for Teen Challenge!
