 Thirdgen Fest '22!!


Thirdgen Fest is held every Memorial Day weekend in Crete, IL (about 35 minutes south of Chicago). This year it is Friday and Saturday, May 27th and 28th. (It will be pushed back to Sunday or Monday in the event of rain.) 2022 is the 21st year of this great event.  Last year we had our best turnout ever with 73 cars and are expecting another great event this year.

Here what's planned for this year:

Friday, May 27th 7:00pm --- Pre-party

Friday night is the party night. The Friday night party is basically just your average summer party. We will have a bonfire, pop, chips, etc. We will also have bean bag boards and other things to do. The party isn't really about the cars, it just gives people a chance to hang around and talk with other people who love thirdgens. It works great for people coming in from out of town that have nothing to do Friday night.

Saturday, May 28th Noon --- Thirdgen Fest '22

Saturday is the actual event day. The first 75 cars registered will receive a Thirdgen Fest '22 shirt. We provide ALL YOU CAN EAT food and drink all day. Each car attending is assigned a number and you will get a car information sheet to display will your car.

Trophies are awarded in ten categories:

Best Camaro: Stock

Best Camaro: Modified

Best Firebird: Stock

Best Firebird: Modified

Best Paint

Best Interior

Best Engine

Best Restoration

Best Project

Best of Show

The stock and modified classes have trophies awarded for first through third place. The other six classes are first place only. Winners are chosen through participant voting. Each registration packet includes a ballot for the owner to vote for the car they feel is best in each category.

We will also have a swap meet will run all day Saturday for people looking to buy/sell parts and swap meet spots will be available.  Of course, we will also be on hand with huge amounts of new and used parts.

We also have a raffle at the end of the day. (Prizes have not been decided yet.) Each registration packet includes one raffle ticket and additional tickets are available.

The day will end with a car cruise to one of the local cruise spots.

Registration packets for Thirdgen Fest '22 go on sale April 1st and are available through the day of the event. The registration packets also include a map and directions as well as motel/campground information for people coming from out of town.

This is an '82-'92 Camaro/Firebird only event. All other cars will be parked in a separate area.  The same registration fees apply to ALL cars.

Thirdgen Fest is the largest and longest running thirdgen event in the world. This is a great event and continues to get better every year!!!

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
