BerettaFest 2022


St. Louis, MO. June 22nd-26th

Here is the itinerary for this year’s BerettaFest!

It’s back! BerettaFest has been held in St. Louis before but that was many moons ago. It has been proposed by multiple people in the last few years but this year we’re making it happen! So here, have a look at what we’ve got lined up for BerettaFest 2022, St. Louis!


Taco Night & Event Check In

  • 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Take your coat off and stay a while. Get comfy, you’ll be here all weekend! Be sure to find the registration tent and get signed in, grab your goodies bags and get any questions you may have answered. 

Everyone will roll into town and get comfortable before making their way to wherever tacos are going down. My hotel room, the parking lot, the dining area in the hotel… if you cook them, they will come. This is an annual tradition started many years ago so if you show up early, grab a taco! The remainder of the evening will be settling in and catching up with your Beretta buddies. 

Event Check In will be available throughout the whole weekend, so don’t worry if you can’t arrive for Taco Night!  Call, text, or FB Message Amy Biagioni-Chmura and let us know when you arrive!  We will let you know where the group is so you can join the fun!

Jefferson Barracks was a U.S. Army post from 1826 to 1946, now turned park and located right on the Mississippi. There are many museums on-site.  The museum buildings were part of the ordnance section built in the 1850s and now contain exhibits, educational programs, and special events are presented.

Group Cruise on the Great River Road National Scenic Byway

The Great River Road stretches so far it can take over 36 hours to drive the entire thing through ten different states! Don’t worry; we’ll stick to a much smaller, local piece of the road to cruise. The road will take us through some small towns right off the river for some great regional experiences.


Pack it up and hit the road! 

Possibly have a group breakfast at a local eatery?

I have a general question. I saved a 1990 Indy 500 from the death junkyard. It has 128000 miles on it from the 1st gen 3.1

I saw how everyone decked theirs out & I couldnt do such a thing. Duggy is a bit raggedy because the previous owner just didn’t care about him anymore & I didn’t want to watch him die. Very mechanically sound, the body on the outside is ok, just the headliner is gone & I had to pay $400 for a company to redo the digital dash (which I rather have the dashboard with the needles instead).

My question is, would I still be able to come down from Chicago for the 2023 getogether? I guess I’m asking. with the way my Indy 500 looks. would I be accepted there?. Or would I be turned away because my car looks NOTHING like all the other ones.

I could never afford this car as a teenager & now I finally got it but I put more into getting back able to drive on the road instead of paint jobs, putting in a new headliner & fixing the seat tracks. Let me know if the “orphan Indy 500” would be accepted to just be there as barely a survivor of the car crusher.

    • There is no condition requirement to attend a Bfest. Show up with what you’ve got or even if you don’t have anything, just register for the event and enjoy the show and company. That’s what this is all about.
