Obtainium Works Presents Obtainium Cup - FREE EVENT!

VALLEJO, CALIFORNIA, MAY 26, 2019 -- Come to historic Mare Island and downtown Vallejo for a fun day featuring art cars, pedal powered vehicles, and steampunk art.

On July 28th from 11am-6pm, celebrating its 8th year, the Obtainium Cup Contraptors Rally is a hand-built sculptural vehicle rally and festival on Mare Island in Vallejo, California. Inspired by the Kinetic Grand Championship in Arcata, CA the Obtainium Cup will highlight the abandoned splendor of the historic Naval Shipyard and historic mansions.

Located on Mare Island in Vallejo, the racers will assemble at Alden Park and at 3pm will drive along Walnut Avenue and through 4 silly challenges including Flying Monkeys, Robots, Zombies, and the Mad Hatters all designed to stymie and frustrate the competitors and entertain spectators! The course will only be along Walnut Avenue...but within walking distance of Alden Park for the public!

This family-friendly, free event will include bicycles and art vehicles that are motor-driven, pedal powered, or altered in some fashion. Spectators are encouraged to travel with the rally to view the various challenges.

At both events, there will be food, refreshments, live and DJ entertainment, and steampunk vendors.

Obtainium Works is the premier art car factory in the San Francisco Bay Area and has created a number of vehicles that have been to Burning Man, Maker Faire and on a number of television shows including SF Oddities and Tiny House Nation. They have been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, Wired Magazine, Time Magazine, Huffington Post, and Daily Mail UK.
