BERETTAFEST 2019: BOWLING GREEN, KENTUCKY

Welcome to Bowling Green, Kentucky! Planes and trains… Cars and guitars… Caves and waves… Rails and trails… Thrills and chills… Charm and farms… We could keep going for days, and that’s just what it would take to see and do everything in the Bowling Green area. As the Home of the Corvette, Bowling Green sure loves fast cars, but the city offers so much more that we think you will be surprised by how much is happening here. Bowling Green is geared for couples, families, and groups with this many options. BerettaFest 2019 is destined for greatness in this classic American destination…

Why Bowling Green?? Although Bowling Green has never been an official BerettaFest destination, it is no stranger to BerettaFest! In 2001, during BerettaFest: Louisville, we visited Bowling Green, toured the Corvette Museum and even did some racing at Beech Bend. It was an amazing time, just ask anyone who was there! Bowling Green has all of the amenities that our group could need or want, without the hassle of the ‘big city’ locale. Its central location should help to enable more people to attend and hopefully ensure a large turnout, making for an unforgettable BerettaFest experience. The cars are what brought us all together, but it’s the people and experiences that keep everyone coming back year after year. I hope you’ll consider bringing BerettaFest 2019 to Bowling Green!

Beretta Fest 2016 will be held in Ocean City MD!

Congratulations to Brian Kimmit and Andy McKevitz for your winning proposal!

BerettaFest 2016: OCEAN CITY, MARYLAND.  June 23rd – 26th

Ocean City MD

Welcome to Ocean City, Maryland, an oceanfront vacation destination along the Atlantic coast that features 10 miles of FREE, clean beaches and world famous Boardwalk. With a variety of accommodations and things to do, there is truly something for everyone in Ocean City! Stroll the three-mile Boardwalk along the seafront, enjoy shopping and games while sampling salt water taffy along with other old fashioned treats. The summer season explodes with special concerts, beach bonfires and kids’ activities. Nature enthusiasts will love nearby Assateague Island, home to deer and wild ponies.

BerettaFest 2016 will mark the 20th Anniversary for our national event! We want to make this one an extra special event and have a few surprises in store for the group! One of the things we are going to TRY and make happen is a slight change in accommodations. We are currently investigating the feasibility of renting a block of condos or perhaps some type of large rental home(s) in lieu of a traditional hotel/motel as we’ve done historically. We cannot promise anything yet as many of the 2016 rental contracts do not renew until the end of the current season. If the condo idea proves impossible, we will have our tried and true hotel accommodations as a fallback. We welcome your input! Please give us your feedback on this idea.
