JOIN FELLOW 914 OWNERS AS WE CELEBRATE THE 50th ANNIVERSARY of the LIMITED EDITION CAN AM 914s!

IPB Image
SEPTEMBER 12-15, 2024
TOWNSEND, TN



Okteenerfest will once again be held in Townsend, TN – the peaceful side of the Smokies. With a location bordering Great Smoky Mountains National Park and within a 30 minute drive along the wonderful Foothills Parkway to the world-famous Dragon and its 318 curves in 11 miles, the mountain roads in the area are some of the best in the southeast. Where else can you experience multiple series of twisties, sweepers, elevation changes, and amazing views? All just a short drive from the host hotel.

THURSDAY – The fun begins with event check-in. Meet up with 914 friends new and old to catch up on what’s been going on throughout the past year. Optional “Sunset Drive” to view the sun setting over the Smokies.
FRIDAY – The “main event” – a drive on the area’s fantastic mountain roads. With planned rest and lunch stops along the way, the daylong drive will feature challenging mountain roads and amazing scenery.
SATURDAY – Marvel at the “rainbow of colors” at the Car Show. Find that much needed part at the Swap Meet (or sell some of your junk stuff). Attend a Tech Session or two. Go for a drive. Take a nap. Feast at the awards banquet. It’s a day filled with activities!
SUNDAY – Revel in the sounds and smells of dozens of 914s firing up to hit the road for home.

YOUR REGISTRATION FEE INCLUDES:
Check-in Packet w/ Event Details
Thursday Evening Sunset Drive (optional)
Friday Drive
Saturday entry to Peoples Choice Car Show & Swap Meet
914 Tech Quiz entry
Informative Tech Sessions
Saturday Evening Awards Banquet

Lifetime of memories, meeting up with friends new & old, and a chance to bond with your 914

Just made reservation at Highland Manor Hotel attempting to use their web site, and it stated No Reservations Available. The hotel has blocked all rooms for the event, so have to make reservations by phone. Done! It was a perfect location last year, good breakfast at Pancake House right across the road from the hotel. chowtime.gif

Call them to reserve a room. Dont go on their web site to check for rooms. They blocked out the rooms for us so it shows no availability. Hope to make it this year.

Yes, you should have received an email with event info including the password to that section of the web site. Let me know if you can't find it and I'll send to you.

I'm surprised by the lack of activity in this thread.

In past years the Okteenerfest thread was highlighted in Orange to call attention to it. Maybe this could be done again.
Dr Evil
Booked and registered. Let me know what you want me to talk about regarding transmissions. I can bring examples, again.

So bummed I can’t make it. Sounds like an awesome gathering. I plan to sell my BB soon to make room for the -6, so hopefully someone else will take my car smile.gif

I don't know of any specific places but there are plenty of lodging choices in Townsend from hotels to airbnb types.
Wish I could be of more help.

Bought the car 15 years ago during his freshman year of college as a project, but due to school, grad school and work schedules hes not been able to make it, so i am excited for a fun Father/Son outing this year!!

Hmm, I will look into that. I've been having other issues on other sites as well. One was fixed by turning back PHP from recently updated 8.2 down to 8.1.

See you in the fall,

For those who have registered for Okteenerfest but have not received an email containing the password to the attendees list... I was running some tests and found out that messages were held in queue for some reason. Several went out not long ago. Clay... one of them was to you.

So if you registered and have not received an email with event info including the password, check your junk folder if you haven't already. Otherwise, PM me here and I will gladly send it.

See you in the fall,
