The organizers of the 2020 Camaro Fest have decided to postpone the event due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
In a statement released Friday, Camaro Fest organizers said the 2020 edition of the event, which was to be the show’s 10th anniversary gathering, would be pushed back until 2021.
“We have been looking forward to hosting out 10th anniversary event since the very end of last year’s gathering,” the statement said. “As we began to put some exciting new ideas and plans into motion, the novel coronavirus struck in the United States. The Camaro Fest event was not to be held until July, but we do expect people to have completely recovered from the COVID-19 impact buy then, which includes key team members we are in touch with.”
“Neither of us are medical professionals, but we feel the writing is on the wall this year and we simply can’t take the risk. We consider you all to be our Camaro family; and the well being of our participants, vendors and partners are of the utmost importance to us.”
Organizers said all payments for pre-purchased event items, such as wristbands, shirts and event coins will be refunded via PayPal within the week.
It’s not yet clear when the event will be held in 2021, with organizers only saying it will be sometime in the summer.
Camaro Fest is an annual gathering for Camaro owners and enthusiasts and includes a car show, drag racing, autocross and road course driving. This year’s event was to be held at the Beechbend Raceway Park in Richardsville, Kentucky, with road course driving to be held at the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park, which sits adjacent to the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
