Upcoming Porsche Car Show

To be honest I always get super excited for one car show during the year and that's the Oktoberfast Car Show.  This year it has been moved from it's cramped down town location out to Eagle, ID in the parking lot of the recently opened Ling and Louie's Asian Bar and Grill.  This will be my fourth year of attending the show to take pictures and I expect to see a lot of stuff that I've already seen and hopefully a lot of stuff that I haven't seen.

The Oktoberfast Car Show is the one and only Porsche specific car show in the area and is run by the Silver Sage Region of the Porsche Club of America.  The car show is open to any and all Porsche models and Porsche owners.  You don't need to be a member of the Silver Sage PCA (or any PCA region) to enter your car into the show.

This year's Oktoberfast will be on Sunday Oct. 9, 2011. Registration (they don't have pricing or online entry forms available yet, it's free for spectators) will start at 11am with judging held at 2pm.  The show it self will go from noon until 4pm.  There will be 4 classes judged: early 356, 911, late models and best of show.  In addition to the car show participating show entrants will be able to enjoy great food while listening to Bavarian music.  There will also be a raffle with some great prizes including a dinner for 4 at Chandler's Steakhouse the proceeds from the raffle will benefit Beds for Vets.

They recently updated the site and have put the online registration up along with pricing.  It's $10 to pre-register and $15 to register at the gate.  That is a really good deal for a car show by the way so I can't see anyone having an excuse not to bring their car down.  Register Here

If you are from out of town and looking for a hotel room I work at the Holiday Inn Express (night shift 11pm-7am) which is just across the way from the event site and would be more than willing to offer some great rates for the weekend.  Ask for Greg.

 I'll be there bright and early to take in the site with camera in hand to take lots of pictures like I always do and hopefully there will be a large turn out of interesting Porsche cars to check out in the mean time you can check out the previous year's events.
