You had me at Beer Garden!
With just over 2 months to go until showtime, we’re learning more of what’s in store at this year’s Bloomington Gold event in Indianapolis. With almost a full year to plan with the new venue this time, the Bloomington team has come up with several new activities throughout the June 18th and 19th event at the Lucas Oil Stadium.
First up is the Beer Garden. This new attraction will be located right outside of the Certification Concourse and feature plenty of ice-cold adult beverages of your choosing. You’ll have the choice of hanging out there and enjoying some live music or taking your tasty treat to roam about the show. Not a beer fan? Don’t fret, they’ll have other delicious liquid refreshments on hand as well.
Need a break from looking at impeccable Corvettes, countless vendors, and rows of Corvette parts and accessories? Then head on down to the Bloomington Gold Theater. This year you’ll be able to snag some popcorn and the aforementioned beverage and have a seat down on the field level of Lucas Oil Stadium to take in some Corvette-centric movies. Some of the current topics include: 1984 – The Bloomington Gold Version, Mecum Auctions Top 10 Corvette Sales, Pure Gold- The Best of Bloomington Gold, The Story of the National Corvette Museum’s sinkhole, and the 2018 L88 Explosion among other shows to be announced later.
Instead of just 1 road tour, there are now 3 driving tours for participants to partake in. The first tour rolls out from Indy to Titan Lifts. Tour number 2 runs out to Griot’s Garage over in Plainfield, IL for a tour and barbeque. The 3rd tour will hit several historic sites in downtown Indy on Saturday before patrons begin to make their way home after a great show weekend.
A couple of older events are making a comeback as well. The Gold School returns covering topics from both the technical and the historical sides of the hobby. A complete list of seminars will be released soon. The Silver Salute event is also returning for 2021. Once again it will be celebrating Corvettes turning 25 years old in 2021. That means 1996 Corvette’s will get special parking and recognition throughout the weekend.
Finally, there’s a new way to support the Granddaddy of Corvette shows. You don’t need to be part of the automotive industry to sponsor Bloomington Gold. Through the “Friends of Bloomington Gold” program, long time Bloomington supporters can sponsor an event or activity and help make a great event even greater. For more information on the program (or anything else Bloomington related) you can reach out to [email protected].
All of these new events complement the staple events like Certification judging, the GoldMine Corvettes for Sale, vendors, swap meet, and Gold Collection.
Bloomington Gold’s 2021 Indianapolis show will take place at the Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. The 2-day event will run Friday, June 18th, and Saturday, June 19th. Registration is now open so head on over to their website to buy tickets or register for Certification judging.
