Welcome to the Cedar Rapids Corvette Club (CRCC). Established in 1963, CRCC is the largest Corvette Club in Iowa!  Join us in our 2016 events and activities celebrating our 53nd year as a philanthropic/social/competition club.


CRCC is dedicated to the joy of Corvette ownership and helping those in need. In addition to our monthly meetings, we enjoy dinner out each month (maybe two), host autocross events at Hawkeye Downs Speedway, drive our Vettes in parades, raise funds for charities, carry homecoming king and queen candidates for local schools, colleges, and universities, dazzle visitors at Lindale Mall during our annual "Cruisin' the Ave Charity Car Show" and generally enjoy life behind the wheel of THE great American sports car - Corvette

The Cedar Rapids Corvette Club is sponsored by Pat McGrath Chevyland.

Note to our visitors:

Every year the Cedar Rapids Corvette Club sponsors a very successful "Cruisin'-the-Ave" Charity Car Show with ALL the net proceeds benefiting four LOCAL charities.  Those charities are:  Miracles-In-Motion, Clothe-A-Child, Catherine McAuley Center, and the Eastern Iowa Brain Injury Association.  We have had request asking how to donate to those charities as part of or thru our car show event.  Donations can be sent directly to our club and we will forward them on to your choice of these four charities or we can divide it up among them.  Checks can be written either to the charity or to "CRCC".  Donations can be sent to our club at:
