Camaro5 Fest is a huge get together that occurs once per year. Its where hundred of owner and many vendor meet up at a specific location. Owners spend some cash on mods and the vendors will give great discounts and sometimes even install the parts for you. I believe they do some auto cross/drag strip kind of stuff. Just think of it has a huge 3 day party. I thought last year it was held in Indiana and I thought it is being held at the same location this year as it was last year.

In its most simple terms, Camaro5 Fest is an annual car show & racing event organized by the staff of Camaro5.com. This year it is in Indianapolis Indiana the first weekend of August (Friday the 2nd & Saturday the 3rd, plus 'overflow socializing' on the 1st & 4th)


However, it is far more than that simple description implies. C5Fest is probably the largest single generation carshow/race weekend of any make & model in the world. It brings together enthusiasts from every corner of the United States (as well as many from Canada) who share a passion for the 5th Generation Camaro. These enthusiasts join together for a weekend of comraderie, through racing, sharing stories, and sharing experiences. Not only can you see 1000 different Camaros, but you can talk with a thousand different owners. Ask what they've done, and why they've done it. And you can tell them what you've done & why.

A vendor alley, which is home to a few dozen of the vendors who you encounter on Camaro5 regularly, will be on hand to show off their wares and answer questions you have, and perhaps make a few sales in the process. Additionally, GM will be in attendance with several members of the Camaro team who are always happy to answer any questions you may have about the car and will almost certainly have a few of their 'special' Camaros in attendance: in the past, we've had the SSX Concept, Bumble Bee from FT2, the 1st public 45th Anniversary Special Edition, and a Nation Wide Stock Car -among many others. The GM tent is usually co-located with the Camaro5 Staff/Information booth.

There is 2 full days of racing scheduled, Camaro-cross and drag racing. Classes should range from stock V6 to all out monsters that resemble stock Camaros in little more than sheet-metal & VIN number.


Most importantly, it is about the people. Young and old, owning 10 Camaros or saving up for your first, we all share a common bond. And its that bond which draws us to Camaro5 Fest each year, no matter where it may be.

Allow me to elaborate. Camaro5FEST is THE www.Camaro5.com SOCIAL EVENT of the YEAR. Most automotive events are all about the cars with social activities wrapped around car activities. No matter how much racing, cruising or showing gets done at C5 FEST it has been and will be a SOCIAL Event with car activities wrapped around it.

That is what makes C5 a fantastic event. I've been doing this for some time and hands down C5FEST is at the top of my list and should be on yours too.
