Please read all of the disclaimers on the registration regarding COVID concerns and itinerary changes. A major change is to how we normally do our “Picnic”. It has been moved to an evening event and is also being catered. You will be required to indicate on your registration what packaged meal you want in addition to what your passengers want. Meal choices are listed in the itinerary.

As in previous years if you are not bringing a Beretta you are still welcome to come, just choose the “Spectator Only” option for registration.

Berettafest 2020 Registration

Postponed to 2021

Due to issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and with concern of the health and safety of our attending members, it is with a heavy heart that we are informing the community that BerettaFest 2020 will be postponed until 2021. We will keep the same event location and itinerary for 2021 as was planned for this year (Rapid City, SD). The event dates for next year will be June 23rd-27th, 2021.

As an event that brings people close together, the BerettaFest Committee just couldn’t figure out how to ensure the viability of the event and safety to its patrons. The Committee explored all options, including cancelling some of the events to save on costs. Several venues cancelled our reservations, and we were informed that the state parks would be closed until mid-July. In the end, it was decided that removing some of the defining events from the itinerary would take too much away from what makes BerettaFest, BerettaFest.

Refunds will be issued to all individuals that have already paid for registration.

The yearly calendar will still be going on, so use this time to get your creative spirit in gear and get some amazing shots ready to submit!

Now let’s take the extra time to make sure your Beretta’s are ready for next year, so we can come back with a bang in 2021!
