The BMW Car Club of America today announced the cancellation of this year’s O’Fest Forever, presented by Michelin, scheduled for September 15–19, 2020 in Palm Springs, California. However, we are excited to go ahead and release the dates and location for the 2021 edition of O’Fest. Next year’s event will take place in beautiful Hilton Head, South Carolina, in conjunction with the Hilton Head Island Concours on November 3–6, 2021! In addition, we are making plans for O’Fest Forever to return to Palm Springs in 2022!
“It is with deepest regret and with the utmost concern for the health and welfare of our members that we announce the cancellation of O’Fest Forever 2020,” said Frank Patek, BMW CCA Executive Director.
O’Fest Forever—the ultimate BMW event—is the continuation of the club’s time-honored annual gathering, which was first held in 1969. With a slightly new spin on the name and new additions, we look forward to celebrating O’Fest once again in 2021 in South Carolina with the support of our presenting sponsor, Michelin.
Next year, attendees can look forward to all of the traditional events, including themed dinners, receptions, tech talks, vendor hall, concours and car show, driving tours, TSD rally, and much, much more!
Our annual gathering wouldn’t have achieved such prominence and longevity without the support of many including our members, volunteers, and sponsors. Although, this year’s event will not take place, we cannot go without specifically thanking our sponsors who have shown unwavering support including BMW of North America, Michelin, XPEL, Akrapovič, Hagerty, Griot’s Garage, Dinan, Lockton Motorsport, Motul, the BMW Performance Driving School, Forgeline, and M Car Covers.
Please make plans to join us for next year’s event in Hilton Head for some BMW fun and relaxation on the coast. Further updates regarding the 2021 edition of O’Fest Forever will be announced in late 2020 on BMWCCA.org and BimmerLife.—Chris Hennecy
