Official CamaroFest VII announcement thread

First off, thanks for your patience.

The next CamaroFest will be in spring 2017. We are targeting the month of April.

The last fest was extremely well attended and enjoyed in Bowling Green. We could have easily turned it around and done a repeat in 2016, but we didn't want to return to BG unless it was huge and nothing less. They support us well there, and no doubt we will be back someday and do it right.

We are very excited to say that we've made the decision to set our sites West, again! But to make that happen, it needs to be in the Spring as we did with Valdosta, Chandler and Baytown due to heat. Unfortunately that didn't leave us with enough time between Fest IV, in BG, and now to put that together for 2016 - even though we have been trying hard.

Now in the meantime, on to what IS happening in 2016…Holley was a huge supporter at Fest VI and we hope to get as many Camaros out to LS Fest as we can. The Holley LS Fest is being held the weekend after Labor Day, September 9 through the 11th...If we get enough interest they will provide us with "Camaro Corral" parking on the track side (Please "Sign up" in the next post). We also want to gauge interest in a Camaro5/6 Track Day at the National Corvette Museum track the same weekend, so you can do both...sort of a "mini fest". Discussions are ongoing between us and the great folks with Holley - and more details to come - but we do need some feedback from everyone who wants to run this awesome track again!

Finally, we wanted to share with you all that we're working with a new partner this year to provide a very unique experience for you in the Michigan area, later this summer. Because of the nature of the event and the partnership, we cannot discuss the details, location, or date before everything is written in stone. However, we can tell you about this special event, and that it is the "big deal" we've been hinting at for a few months..

Thanks Mike! I already planned on LS Fest so count me in. Also, I figured something was up for the big event. I am still calling my prediction it has to do with GM and the 6th gen.

Quick question...when I go to the LS Fest website and click register it carries me to the 2015 registration page. I would assume 2016 would be open to register but I am not sure. Anyone have a better link that this one?

Feel fortunate that I just snagged a room at the Holiday Inn in BG for the LS Fest. Didnt look like many left. Thats the host hotel and is a great spot for another parking lot party! Or two! Or three!
Come on guys. We can turn this into a CamaroFest. Just show up!

Maybe another hotel could be snagged as host for the Camaro5/6 crowd?
