You’ll be able to fill out order forms at the show. Cash/credit only; no checks. Gloria will be taking win photos wirelessly, so you’ll be able to select the photo you want on the spot! She’s a different kind of show photographer and we think everyone will be pleased with her approach. Click the logo at left to read her policies.

VHTS Requirements The MBTCA Board recently accepted new guidelines for the Van Hildrikhusen Trophy Show that are aligned with the original wishes of VHTS founder Lotte Frank. The two biggest changes: No more health requirement and the show will now have three judges. Click here to read the full guidelines on the MBTCA website.

Travel

By Air
San Francisco, San Jose, and Oakland are all about two hours from Modesto. Oakland is the easiest major international airport in terms of traffic. Sacramento is closest, but has limited direct flights.

ABC Airporter shuttle serves all three airports.

By Train
Modesto is on Amtrak‘s San Joaquins route that connects Sacramento to Bakersfield. Travelers from the East and upper Midwest can reach Sacramento via the California Zephyr. Those from the South and Southwest can take the Texas Eagle, Sunset Limited, or Southwest Chief to Los Angeles and then either catch the Coast Starlight to the Bay Area or hop a flight.

Make it a vacation!

Some of the country’s greatest landmarks are less than 2 hours from Modesto. See all the places you can go while you’re in the region!
