Barber Vintage Festival 2012
 
Who is going this year?

Which campground are you staying at?

Who is going to have a slot in the Vendor section?

Anyone in the race?

Is there an "ADV Central" set up anywhere?

I'm fired up.

The 8th Annual

Barber Vintage Festival

Presented by Triumph Dealers of North America
October 12, 13, & 14, 2012


t's less than a month away and this year's Barber Vintage Festival is even Bigger than ever before. New this year is Jerry Wood's Cyclemarket & Auction. The America's First Federal Credit Union Fan Zone is overflowing. We've added the Ace Cafe at the Ace Corner too! The motorcycle swap meet has over 250 vendors that can help you locate that last part needed or perhaps inspire you to start something new. There are special programs take place in the museum and this is one of the few times when the Restoration Level is open to visitors. Get your festival tickets, camping passes and Motorcycles by Moonlight tickets as they are all selling fast. Please check back for updates and more information.

I'll be there - not camping though. Love this event! :clap

I'll be a day tripper, myself. I live in the next county over and will have a nice 50-mile ride out to the track.

One of my brothers-in-law and I are considering coming down from Missouri for 1 day, probably Saturday. Not being familiar with the area and how much strain the festival puts on hotel room availability, we're thinking of staying 50 or so miles out of Birmingham and then ride over for the day. No particular plans yet, but arriving from the Northwest, it looked like Jasper(?) might be a spot to stop on Friday night. Any suggestions from someone fairly local to the area?

Thanks

Is there anyone going from here who could pick up and send out a t-shirt for me, as due to work and family comitments, I will not be able to get to the US again this year. I will paypal the money over as a gift.

I would buy one from the Barber shop, but alas it does not allow non USA buyers.

It is no big deal if you can't, I shall just have to wait until my next visit.:evil

Sure. Check your PM.

If you have a three day pass, you can be a guest and share a campsite if you know another inmate or friend who is willing.

It's been getting more and more popular every year. I usually get my day-pass tickets at the door, but I might go ahead and do them electronically this year, just in case. Also, I remember a long wait in a long line at the ticket gate last year and it's be nice to (possibly) avoid that.

Bill, if you do it online, you print the tickets and bypass the ticket booth all together. When you roll up to the gates they scan your printout an hand you a wristband and a program.

Yes! The idea of filtering to the head of a mile long line of bikes simply appeals to me.

And the older I get, the grumpier I get in line... :(

Bill Harris 09-18-2012 01:58 PM

Easy Peezy, yes indeedie. The at-home printed ticket looks exactly like the at-track printed one (IIRC) and no long line.

Anyone know what the Ace Corner http://www.barbervintagefestival.org/ace-corner.php (an extra-cost added feature) is? Sounds like a welcome change for tired feets.
