    Detail Fest 2013 Recap - What Would YOU Like to See Next Year?

    Were you at Detail Fest this year?? If so please read this and give us some feedback...



    It's hard to believe that our 8th annual Detail Fest is nearly a month behind us. This year the theme was GO BIG OR GO HOME and that's exactly what we did.




    Celebrities

    This year we had more tents (bigger ones too!), more cars at the car show on both days and a slew of TV celebrities including:

    Barry Meguiar - photo courtesy of forum member Bunky





    Bruno Massel and Matte Steele from TruckU with forum member 57BORNTORUN




    Wayne Carini from Chasing Classic Cars



    Detailing Classes

    We hosted several classes both days that featured detailing experts Mike Phillips, Todd Helme, Jason Rose from Meguiars, Mothers and more!

    Big Tents & New Vendors!

    In addition to more tents this year, they were also larger in size to accommodate a host of vendors that have never been to Detail Fest.

    Thanks to forum member Bunky for taking such excellent photos!





    Food!

    You can't have a car show without world-class hot dogs! This year's Detail Fest featured two food vendors:

    Curbside Gourmet


    P561 (better known as the "hot dog guy")

    If you attended Detail Fest this year, what did you like about it? What would you like to see changed for next year? Different classes? More celebrities? Different layout? As we plan for next year we want to make sure to keep one thing in mind.... what do YOU want at YOUR Detail Fest 2014!

    Share your thoughts!

    Cooler weather.On a serious note maybe a special area for the cars that were in the SHOW CAR GARAGE.My family and I had a blast.My 6 year old Son had so much fun chasing down the Celbs. that he sees on TV and getting his photo taken with them.Dont reinvent the wheel as I loved it.IMHO.

    I would say maybe a demonstration tent outside so people who are not registered for a class inside can still get some learning and demonstrating of techniques and products outside. Maybe like an outdoor show car garage tent / classroom area. Open it up for classes by some of the experts and to vendors to talk about their particular products or technologies to somewhat of a focused audience.

    I'd LOVE to see classes on wetsanding, dampsanding, colorsanding, proper technique and when to do it/when not to.

    Overall AG Detail Fest was amazing! And thanks again Nick for the last minute help!!
