Is there much parking available at the museum for non E30 visitors who want to check out the event? My E30 is currently a subframe-less shell but I want to come check out the cars.

There is usually a large grass field for non-e30 parking a short distance from the picnic.

Yes, tons of parking for non-E30s. You'll enter at the main LeMay entrance.

non-E30s coming to the E30 Picnic

The E30 Picnic still tries to be a private party. But other people do like to come see the show. Last year about 100 BMWs that were not E30s showed up. For those people, you will enter at the main gate at LeMay Marymount. You will pay a discounted rate of $10 per person to LeMay staff which will get you access to the LeMay Car Museum at Marymount and you can walk over to the East Lawn to see the E30 Picnic.

Note: We are at LeMay Marymount in Spanaway. NOT the Lemay ACM museum next to the Tacoma Dome.

For Navigation, the address for the main gate for non-E30 arrival is:

LeMay Collections at Marymount
325 - 152nd Street E,
Spanaway, WA 98445

Special address for E30 arrival at the E30 Picnic

For E30s that want to use Navigation to get to the E30 Picnic, you will not enter at the main gate for LeMay Marymount. Rather, there is a secondary entrance about 200 yards to the East that the E30s will enter at. This is the same entrance the E30s have always entered. I never knew it had its own address. LOL

The special address for the E30-only entrance is:

LeMay Collections at Marymount,
423 - 152nd Street E,
Spanaway, WA 98445

Gearswitch cupholder for E30

Super cool E30 cupholder from GearSwitch LLC. This is the one I have in my personal E30.

Two Food Trucks at the Picnic

There will be two food trucks at the Picnic (same trucks as last year). One serving BBQ, the other fish & chips. Both take credit cards, though cash always works.

Special Tours of LeMay and Model T Rides!

LeMay staff will have a tent at the Picnic and will be scheduling special one hour tours of the LeMay Marymount museum. Cost is discounted to $10 each. They will run them on the half hour, as demand dictates.

Also, their Model T crew will be giving rides in their fleet of Model Ts. LeMay has 77 acres, you will get a ride in a Model T through their woods, out on a big field, it is a really interesting experience. There is a nominal cost for a ride, the proceeds help pay for parts for keeping the Model Ts running! Highly recommended!
