Autogeek’s 6th Annual Detail Fest & Car Show

It’s that time of year again! Autogeek’s 6th Annual Detail Fest is coming up on March 26-27, 2011.

We like to celebrate the arrival of Spring in our own unique way here at Autogeek: by hosting a detailing expo and car show! Every year since 2006 we’ve hosted a gathering of leading manufacturers, enthusiasts and, of course, their cars for a day of education, detailing, and fun.

Detail Fest 2011 is being held on March 26-27 at our Stuart, Florida headquarters. There’s no better way to get your vehicle ready for Spring than to learn from the pros and from fellow hobbyists about the latest techniques and products. Meet your favorite manufacturers and see their products in action. Detail Fest is also a great opportunity to meet fellow forum members face to face and see their handiwork up close.

Detail Fest is open to anyone wanting to walk around and check out the products and demos. For a small registration fee, you can enter your car into our Detail Fest Car Show!

Detail Fest is 9 am -4 pm on Saturday and Sunday.

This year, we’re pleased to have two fantastic charities involved with Detail Fest:

Operation Comfort is a support organization for wounded veterans.

We’re excited to bring in three individuals from Operation Comfort to join us for Detail Fest weekend!

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education, and patient services.

All the vendors that will be present at Detail Fest have made donations to these two great organizations! We’ll be raising money at Detail Fest. Thank you to our vendors and to everyone who has contributed to Operation Comfort and LLS. We look forward to seeing you at Detail Fest!
