      This year is going to be better than ever..


      There are no reservations for camping, there will be plenty of space. Picture a small Woodstock. Peace and Love

      We are still currently working with a few hotels/motels for reduced pricing however depending on how much you want to spend there are several nice hotels in the downtown Burlington area that I would definitely recommend. DT life is excellent off street parking. As far as the ferry low cars should be fine except the "speed bump" getting on and off the ferry itself, however go slow and at an angle and you should be fine. I have taken the ferry many times and haven’t really had any issues.

      check out our facebook page and website (website will be up within the next weeks)

      Working on it

      When you say "Nice" are you saying Hilton or Courtyard? ($$$$) or more like the Double tree or Ramada? ($$)

      Or info in general? I've yet to come to this show and hope to make it this year, but need to be able to plan ahead for it, and the website is still not up. Any base info, specifically on camping, that I may be able to get?

      Camping lot is pretty big. Last year it wasn't near full. My girlfriend and I got one for the weekend and it was decently cheap. Not sure on exact amount but definitely worth it.

      Where are these hotels in relation to the show? The no campfires thing pretty much kills the idea of camping for me.

      The Hotels are a midway point from being dowtown Burlington and from the show.
      Show location is 105 Pearl Street, Essex Junction, VT 05452.

      Directions from Hotels to show:

      No campfires I'll take, but are we allowed to grille/cook? If that's not allowed I may have to think twice about this trip.

      I dont see why not, let me double check.

      The reason we say no campfires is because last year people decided to rip down a wooden fence and use it to kindle the fire. Thus no more campfires..

      Destruction of property is usually frowned upon

      Thank you for your question. We made some changes on our website and we have decided to make the Enthusiast parking into an "ENTHUSIAST class" for all foreign or domestic cars. We will judge for the "Best of ENTHUSIAST" trophy. The price to participate in the "ENTHUSIAST" class will be the same as all other show cars.

      So tell your buddy with his Subaru to get that hoopty cleaned and shinny
