THIRDGEN FEST '14 registration packets are now available
Thirdgen Fest is held every Memorial Day weekend in Crete, IL (about 40 minutes south of Chicago). This year it is Friday and Saturday, May 23th and 24th. (It will be pushed back to Sunday or Monday in the event of rain.) 2014 will be our 13th year and the event continues to get bigger and better every year. We have had over 70 cars a year attend in the past and hope to have a better turnout this year.
Here what's planned for this year:
Friday, May 23rd 7:00 pm --- Friday night 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 24th Noon --- Thirdgen Fest '14
Saturday is the actual event day. The first 100 cars registered will receive a goodie bag. 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 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 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 '14 go on sale April 1st and are available through the day of the event. The early registration price is $35 per car and is available April 1st - May 10th. The cost increases to $45 per car if you register May 10th through the day of the event so it pays to register early. Your registration fee gets you into both days. Remember the fee is PER CAR, it doesn't matter how many people you have in your car. 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. You can still attend without bringing a thirdgen, however, the same registration fees apply.
Thirdgen Fest is the biggest 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.
