Vette Fest 2023

September 29th & 30th - Gatlinburg, TN

From Phil Harless – Vette Fest Chairperson


You are cordially invited to spend a Corvette Enthusiast’s Dream Weekend attending the 44th Annual Vette Fest, in the heart of Tennessee’s beautiful Smoky Mountains.  Vette Fest is hosted by the East Tennessee Corvette Club (ETCC) as a Fund-Raising event for our Children’s and Veteran’s charities.


We hope you will join us, and hopefully 200+ other Vette owners from across our nation. The 2023 Glenstone Lodge venue (same as 2022) provides a Large meeting area, and adds the excitement of downtown Gatlinburg, TN.  Vette Fest is a casual dress (jeans, etc.). Very light snacks and beverages will be provided in evenings.  The Glenstone has a NEW lobby restaurant for 2023 serving breakfast and dinner. Several restaurants offer hotel delivery and plenty of restaurants within walking distance.
The 2022 “Pirate’s Cruse” Vette Fest had 157 Folks registered and 18 Corvette clubs represented.  We expect at least that number in 2023.  The 2023 Vette Fest theme will be “Summer of 69”!  We will kick-off the 2023 weekend with a Groovy Meet-&-Greet on Friday night to talk with old friends and make new friends.

Saturday morning, we will start with an “All For Fun” Corvette show to check out everyone’s cars. There will be a Moonshine-Tasting option and something for our “Hippy Chicks” during the car show also.  You are free for self-directed 1969 Road-Trip for the afternoon and dinner with friends.  If you like, wear your best Hippy-Gear (totally optional) to Saturday night’s after-party themed “Return to Woodstock”.  We will have awards and then crank-up the WolfMan-Jack DJ for some 60s groves!


You MUST be registered for Vette Fest to participate in the events!! Vette Fest registration is separate from your hotel reservation. So be sure to register for BOTH the Hotel and Vette Fest.

Please find attached “PDF-Files” for: Information, Registration, and Hotel (Contact, Information, and Details).  Vette Fest Special Weekend Rates at Glenstone start at $129/Night plus Tax, and as low as $99 for Monday through Thursday, if you want to come early or extend your stay.  Please share with your clubs and Vette-Friends!!
