Euro Tripper is back! The inaugural event was a big hit, so we are keeping it going. Euro Tripper 2, will build on that success with some expansion and some updates.
Same location as last year, but we have rented more of the arena grounds.
What is Euro Tripper?
1) Charity event
2) Euros, euros, euros. Air-cooled as well as water-cooled!
3) Relaxed, chill event, more focus on socializing and less focused on winning anything. (yes, we do have awards and classes however).
4) Building the Euro Community in our area including local vendors.
Its a great social day. See some great Euro vehicles, cool people, talk with your local vendors, and do some charity work.
Charity: We are focused on local animal shelters. The show will make a donation to a local animal saving shelter focused on rescuing from kill facilities called Brookes Legacy (http://www.brookeslegacyanimalrescue.org/). We also collect donations the shelter can use (blankets, food, supplies, etc).
Animals ready for adoption are also at the event.
