BERETTAFEST 2019: BOWLING GREEN, KENTUCKY
Welcome to Bowling Green, Kentucky! Planes and trains... Cars and guitars... Caves and waves... Rails and trails... Thrills and chills... Charm and farms... We could keep going for days, and that's just what it would take to see and do everything in the Bowling Green area. As the Home of the Corvette, Bowling Green sure loves fast cars, but the city offers so much more that we think you will be surprised by how much is happening here. Bowling Green is geared for couples, families, and groups with this many options. BerettaFest 2019 is destined for greatness in this classic American destination…
Why Bowling Green?? Although Bowling Green has never been an official BerettaFest destination, it is no stranger to BerettaFest! In 2001, during BerettaFest: Louisville, we visited Bowling Green, toured the Corvette Museum and even did some racing at Beech Bend. It was an amazing time, just ask anyone who was there! Bowling Green has all of the amenities that our group could need or want, without the hassle of the 'big city' locale. Its central location should help to enable more people to attend and hopefully ensure a large turnout, making for an unforgettable BerettaFest experience. The cars are what brought us all together, but it's the people and experiences that keep everyone coming back year after year. I hope you'll consider bringing BerettaFest 2019 to Bowling Green!
