O’fest – Presented By Michelin Oct 31 – Nov 4
Celebrate with Us!
Each year the BMW Car Club of America throws a party—a world famous party known as Oktoberfest and sometimes simply O’fest. This movable celebration of everything BMW occurs at exciting locations throughout the country and is the ultimate motorsport family reunion. This year we are fortunate enough to have our family reunion presented by Michelin once again!
About The 48th Annual BMW CCA Oktoberfest Presented by Michelin
Dates: October 31 – November 4, 2017
Host Hotel: Hyatt New Orleans | Host Track: NOLA Motorsports
O’fest 2017 will be the next chapter in our storied history of celebrating everything BMW. We are traveling down to the Big Easy and you do not want to miss this opportunity to join us on famed Bourbon Street! The host hotel for O’fest will be the Hyatt New Orleans and the track is, NOLA Motorsports.
Where do you go when it is time to get away? What if you knew of a place where the scenery isn’t all that changes? A place where centuries old architecture is the backdrop for a culture so invigorating, it’ll rouse your spirit. Visit the most fun and authentic city in America: New Orleans.
Oktoberfest will run from Tuesday, October 31 through Saturday, November 4, 2017, and will feature many of the staples that longtime attendees have become familiar with at previous gatherings, including the Bridgestone autocross, Concours, rallies, and of course, high-performance driving events. This year’s edition will also feature some very unique social events—a 1940’s themed dinner at the World War II Museum, BMW CCA Nightclub at club XLIV and a night in the French Quarter
This will be a bucket-list week of excitement and fun for any BMW enthusiast. Stay tuned for other surprises that have yet to be announced!
