Glidden Tours® usually include six days of scheduled activities beginning on a Sunday and ending on the following Friday and are usually held late September or October.  Starting in 2002, VMCCA has welcomed the AAA as a co-sponsor of this event and the two organizations celebrated the 100th Anniversary of AAA during the 2002 AAA Glidden Tour®, bringing Glidden Tour® history full circle!
