If you read back a few posts there are plans in the works for a Fest in Ypsilanti MI around the time of the Detroit Auto Show in early June, 2020. Not far from Cinci.

Come to Ho5G (House of 5 Garages) in E. Hempstead NH on New Year's Day. If there isn't a thread up about it yet there will be soon.

Awesome! I was not aware of this but I will keep my eyes peeled! East Hampstead is quite close to me!

Considering the time and work it takes to organize a full on TDIFest, and that the same people who did all the work year after year got burned out, I was thinking on how to avoid that. What I have in mind is a scaled down TDIFest, a TDIFest-light so to speak. This would be more of an informal weekend GTG, with a national invite instead of local. Events would have to be scalable depending on attendance. This means that instead of vendors bringing lots of inventory and have booths, they might just offer fest weekend discount codes and only take online orders. No formal banquet. Car show? Sure, but it would be more of a 'cars & coffee' type event. No formal judging or trophies and expect to put some money in a donation jar.

Because TDIFest is a fundraiser, there would be active solicitations and the expectation that attendees would make donations in some amount. The details of that would have to be worked out. Maybe a simple admission fee would be work.

All input is welcome. I'll have a much better idea of how this 'TDIFest-light' might work after this weekend after I talk to some long time fest organizers.

As I mentioned above, folks are thinking about hosting this in Ypsilanti, MI, the first weekend of the 2020 Detroit Auto Show, which I believe would be June 13/14. So there's hope.

I am surprised Fred has enough money to keep the site going without the TDIfest fundraiser.
