Euro Fest postponed one week to Oct. 17
RIDGELAND — Organizers say that although the Euro Fest Car and Motorcycle Show at the Renaissance has been postponed a week, they do not expect the event to be any less extravagant.
“We will probably lose some presenters and pick some up since we are moving it but we still expect this to be one of the biggest shows we have ever had,” Mike Marsh, the event organizer said Tuesday afternoon.
The show was originally slated for this Saturday, Oct.10 but has been rescheduled until next weekend Oct. 17 due to a high chance of rain expected this weekend associated with Hurricane Delta. Organizers said that early projections show sunny skies for the weekend of Oct. 17.
Marsh said that they expect to have roughly 125 vehicles on display next weekend. Past events have drawn between 12,000 and 15,000 guests to the Renaissance. Marsh aid the event is still expected to go as planned with cars parading in the evening of Friday, Oct. 16.
“The weekend may have changed but it will still be a fun, free, family event,” Marsh said.
Countries represented are expected to range from Italy, Germany, Britain and Sweden and makes are expected to include Volkswagen, BMW, Alfa Romeo, Daimler, Norton, Ducati, Royal Enfield, BMW, Bugatti, Talbot Lago, Marcos, and Henson to name a few.
Most vehicles will have been produced before 1991, although they do offer a special "Nouvo" designation for cars produced after that date that are of a particular spectacle or rarity.
This will make the 12th iteration of the regularly occurring event.
The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Renaissance. The show is open to all European Marques with no registration fees and is free to the public as well. Go to euro-fest.net for more information.
