We want to thank the volunteers, vendors, sponsors, artists, car clubs, spectators, car owners, staff of the fairgrounds, the Chamber of Commerce of Dubuque, and the Convention and Visitors Bureau of Dubuque.
All of these people helped make the show a success.
We learned a lot this first year and we are confident we will be able to iron out some of the kinks that we had to deal with. We have even more in store to keep the festival atmosphere rolling for 2014 and hope you will make plans to join us on May 2, 3, 4.
We are going to try our best to weather proof the show. The fairground has agreed to be flexible with our times on the track. So if the weather looks bad on Saturday – we will be able to get cars out on the track on Friday. If we have weather like we did this past year, then we will be able to get some action in on Sunday before everyone takes off. We plan on doing a Bloody Mary Brunch on Sunday morning and have a possible bluegrass band to send everyone off. Perhaps a couple of other things as well.
This will be just one of the changes next year that we will keep everyone updated on.
Another change will be about camping – giant RVs will have limited space for next year.
This will be given to those who reserve first, and yes, the county fairgrounds are ready to take your reservations now. This will only be around 10 spots so don’t delay.
If you had fun at Vintage Torque Fest and want to attend the same kind of show, we will be hosting
Iron Invasion in Woodstock IL October 11-12 and Retro Rewind an event with Cars & Guitars & Fuel Injected Film Festival. Retro Rewind will be the official pre party for Torque Fest-Jan. 11, 2014 at the Five Flags Theater in downtown Dubuque.
Hope to see you at a show down the road!
