The State Farm Center in Campaign, Illinois is currently being renovated, which doesn’t make for a great venue for a long-running car show. As a consequence, the Bloomington Gold Corvette show will have to find new digs for the 2015 show season.
According to The News-Gazette, the President and CEO of Visit Champaign County, Jayne DeLuce, announced on a radio show today that Bloomington Gold vendors have decided not to return to Champaign as they were upset with having to “compete with construction.”
However, DeLuce added that vendors haven’t completely written off Champaign, as they would like to have the show return to the Chicago area. She said it’s possible that Visit Champaign County will approach the Corvette vendors again once renovations of the State Farm Center are complete.
A location has yet to be set for the 2015 Bloomington Gold event, but the dates will be June 25-27, 2015.
