We are extremely excited to announce that Bimmerfest will be coming to the east coast on August 6, 2011 at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen, Maryland! BMW enthusiasts have been asking for an east coast show for years and we are thrilled that Bimmerfest East 2011 will be the answer to those requests.

We really need everyone's help in getting the word out, so please tell your friends, friends on Facebook, anyone in your lives who you know to be a BMW enthusiast. If you are a member of any other relevant automotive forums online, please post a link to the show!

Wow. Great question.

Some people think the caravans of BMWs driving (racing) to the show together en masse is the best part. At the show it's sorta like being at a rock concert, but the cars are the stars. People who have only previously known each other as their User ID/ forum nicknames get to actually meet face-to-face and hang out. Everything from stock E92s to classic E9s to the wildest modified M3s on the planet all come together for just one day to celebrate all things BMW.

There is so much more than that, though. Just go to You Tube and search the key word Bimmerfest.

Treat yourself to hundreds of videos to get a feel for it...

Will there be any events? Autocross? Drag (here's the closest 1/4 mile track: http://www.cecilcountydragway.com/trackinfo.shtml)? Or is it just a show up and look at pretty cars thing?

This is totally AWESOME!

"Bimmerfest from sea to shining sea!" (I call rights if anyone decides to use that phrase )

I live in CA and I feel for all our brothers and sisters who either can never attend Bimmerfest due to distance, or have to suffer the long drive to get here.

I can already tell this year is going to be a great event year x2 as well as a great year of swapping 'fest stories with members from both coasts!

Huh? What do you mean? Did you look at the pull down menu for vehicle model? (i.e., What are you driving?)

Bimmerfest is like Mecca for BMW enthusiasts. The greatest day (now two) of my life. I just have to say that I love the fest more than my own birthday/christmas combined. I'm so excited that there is going to be one on the East Coast! Good call BF!

This seems to be the place most discussed; it's very close and inexpensive, and I've read that they're planning a BBQ here the night before for BMW enthusiasts.

This is awesome news -- something to plan around no doubt. Just liked and tweeted. Hmm, should I drive the E36 or the E39...

323I00 commented:
March 15, 2011, 8:45 am

323I00 from E46 FANATICS.COM

Officially booked at the Travelodge 1.5 miles from Ripken stadium
Did I get a good rate ? (54$ plus tax a night )

Now for the fun part .........

Seeing most of you guys know that Im from Montreal Quebec , Ill be shooting down with the 323i and the wifey , I have a dilema , I hope some one here can help me out with my next set of questions .

Which way would be best for me to come down apart from going through the state of NY , I belive I can drive Into the state of VERMONT and work my way around that , I have 2 out standing tickets In the state of NY and from what Im told If Im caught driving In the state of NY Its a hefty fine pluse a sieze of car plus jail time , Which I dont need !

Question 2

From looking at the event stats , I saw many of you from NY will be going down , My wifey will be attending the event with me , If worst case senario as much as I dont want to do this Ill make her drive my car from the MONTREAL border entering the state of NY till JERSEY, Can I meet up with the NY & JERSEY group and join the run ?

PhillyNate commented:

Of course I will be there but I just noticed in the event statistics there will be over 280 E46 variants attending the event. That is over 25% of cars attending. There is no better testament to how good a car it is. And what a dedicated fan base they have. Bravo.

Hopefully it will turn out to be a success! It sounds like a lot of fun... today met up with Turner Motorsports guys at BMW NA! I would like to attend one next year if it is happening on the East Coast. This year, cannot make it.

Thanks!
