No. There is no early entry this year. Regular entry is $20 per car if you park in the show. Only difference is a $10 walk-in fee if you park somewhere else and walk in. If you own a BMW, you should be parking at the show and split between 2-3 people in one car it is next to nothing

The Rose Bowl will be providing food and drinks on site.

You are parked based on when you arrive and who you arrive with. We recommend meeting up with friends and coming to the event together

There will most likely be a bunch of get togethers with hundreds of BMWs in the area for the show the next day. Keep an eye on the forum for details

Yes, the show is so big we're using multiple lots. Each lot will have at least once entrance to make for a smooth and quick entry into the show


I hope that helps answer your questions!

Excellent answers......thanks for the quick response. I hope this helps other bimmerfest attendees. As I live fairly close to the Rose bowl, I am looking forward to any pre-parties the night before.

Thanks again, Eisenmann

This will be my first Bimmerfest and I got most of my questioned answered by the FAQ page, but I just have one more lol...

I will definitely be parking at the event. Will I get to park my car or does valet do it? I noticed one of the sponsors is Blue Star and based on what I know they are a valet service.

Not to sound like a prude but I'm very attached to my car (even though it's 12 years old) and I never let valet park it for me. lol

My mechanic friend Matt will park your car. And cord your tires.


edit: just to insert a disclaimer here - this is a skilled driver on a closed race course. The last guy who tried doing donuts at a Bimmerfest earned the universal scorn of everyone who saw it, both in person and later, on the web

I would imagine if Blue Star is working the event, their people are there to collect entry fees, direct traffic, and (hopefully) collect attendance statistics.

As Cliff said, Blue Star is there to handle the entry of people into the show but there is no valet service. You drive and park your own car

Niiiiice! I might just let him park if for me then, but I don't think my 528 will give him enough power to do that

Hi, couldn't send Jon S. a message but have a question about setting up...
I'm a professional caricature artist and also a bmw enthusiast.
Samples: http://www.worangejuice.blogspot.com/

Would it be possible to set up a small stand to do caricatures of people and their cars, in front of my car?
Does the event allow this? would I need a vendor/business license?
all that is needed is 2 chairs/umbrella/ and a board to draw on.
Just curious and thought this may be fun for visitors alike.
Thanks,
Warren

Cool idea. To be honest I really don't think it would be a problem, but I would definitely wait for Jon or another moderator to chime in.

Looks like a cool idea.

Enter into negotiations with the Bimmerfest owners. I bet they'd jump at it.

Haven't heard any response to this yet. I'd plan to just setup by the car.drawings only take bout 5 minutes,they'd be black and white of course. Like $15 or $10 a pic+ a little more if any additional people in the pic. I just can't message Jon S. Or start any threads,thanks again guys

Will the stadium parking be available for other people and then walk-in?

We're using the two main stadium parking lots for the show! The inside of the Rose Bowl is just too small for 2,000+ BMWs

See you Saturday,
Tim

Question Parking

Since two of the major Rose Bowl parking lots will be used for the show, where can outside attendees park? I'm a non-BMW owner and want to attend the show, is there a specific place we can park at the Rose Bowl? If so, is there a fee? I'm aware of the $10 entrance fee, just wanted to know about the parking situation.

We're actually using a side part of one of the lots for non-BMWs. The cost is $20 per car or you can park in a surrounding lot and pay the $10 walk in fee.

Can you please clarify what you mean by "surrounding lot?" Are these lots on the Rose Bowl premises or will I need to look for parking in the surrounding neighborhoods? I'd like to come up and walk around but due to prior obligations I won't be able to stay more then 2-3 hours so I didn't want to park "in" the show--and finding helpful information about parking/entrance for non-show participants has been difficult at best.
