September 27th & 28th - Gatlinburg, TN

From Phil Harless – Vette Fest Chairperson


You are cordially invited to spend a Corvette Enthusiast’s Dream Weekend attending the 45th 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 2024 Glenstone Lodge venue (same as 2023) provides a Large Meeting area, isolated parking, 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 Lobby Restaurant serving Breakfast and Dinner. Several area Restaurants offer Hotel Delivery and plenty of Restaurants are within walking distance.


The 2023 “Summer of 69” Vette Fest had 171 Folks Registered and 18 Corvette Clubs Represented. We expect to increase that number in 2024. The 2024 Vette Fest Theme is “1950s Birth of a Legend!” We will kick-off the 2024 weekend with a “Drive-In Themed Meet-&-Greet” evening 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 “Ladies”! You are free for Self-Directed Road-Trip for the afternoon and dinner with old or new friends. If you like, wear your Best 1950s attire (totally optional) to Saturday night’s After-Party themed “Sock-Hop”. We will have Awards and then crank-up the Wolf-Man Jack DJ for some 50s Music!


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 Registration and Hotel (Contact, Information, and Details).
Vette Fest Special Weekend Rates at Glenstone start at $134/Night plus Tax, and as low as $99 for Monday through Thursday, if you want to come early or extend your stay.


Vette Fest Registration Check-In will be from 1-6 PM on Friday, 8-10 AM on Saturday.
