WHAT’S IN STORE FOR 2016?

- The April 9 show at NYCB Theatre (Westbury Music Fair) will feature some fun extras. Every vehicle entering and checking in by 10:30am will get a FREE breakfast. PLUS you’ll get a free raffle ticket for two tickets to an upcoming show at the Music Fair… PLUS you’ll get a coupon worth 10% off the ticket price to the September Doo-Wop show! 

- The July 17 Summer AutoFest at Sears in Hicksville is now officially the New York AutoFest Long Island Wing Festival and Car Show! This will be a huge food event and wing competition. There will be tons of food trucks, wing cookouts, games for kids, and we'll even have a Beer Garden! We will be working with LI Wing Fest and LIGRA to bring you this great new event. There will be lots of information posted about this event on our new web site created just for this show, www.liwingfest.com. 

- On September 15 for the second year in a row we will be featured at the Long Island Gasoline Retailers Assoc. (LIGRA) Trade show at Leonard's in Great Neck. Those of you who attended last Summer can attest what a great free event this was. They are giving us 3x the parking space this year and, as in 2015, it's free and you even get fed!

REVISED 2016 SHOW CLASSES
Due to the ever increasing number of vehicles in the 1965-1974 class we’ll be splitting it into new 1965-1969 and 1970-1974 classes which gives everone a much better chance at a trophy. We’re also giving Gassers a home of their own combining them with Pro-Street. You can see the proposed new class list here.

NEW YORK AUTOFEST TOY STORE
Well car toys anyway. Yes we have an online store set up for your vehicle needs. Everything from guages to spark plugs to batteries. Take a look, you’ll find our prices very reasonable.

ELECTRONIC SCORE KEEPING IS A HUGE SUCCESS!
Our electronic eScore system was tested and constantly improved upon in 2015 and you can expect to see a much improved, faster, and more informative system for the 2016 show season. We’ll announce many of the improvements at the February annual judging seminar.

CRUISE NIGHT STARTS UP ON MAY 6

Once again we’ll be holdiong our cruise nights at Ransom Beach in Bayville, this year benefiting the Have A Heart Choldren’s Cancer Society.




UP NEXT!
Here is our 2016 VERY TENTATIVE show calendar www.nyautofest.com/NYAF/shows. These dates can  change and others added so ALWAYS check our calendar for updates before heading out. NEVER rely on printed calendars for our shows (or any others for that matter) such as from newspapers or flyer handouts as these may be outdated.


ALL SHOWS CALENDAR OPEN TO EVERYONE
Has your group been prevented from attending the annual President’s Council meeting? A number of groups, clubs, and others have been told that they cannot attend the annual calendar meeting. Many bona fide clubs that have been supporting the Council for years are being excluded while some non-clubs and commercial entities have been listed. It appears to be totally arbitrary.

Fear not, the New York AutoFest online calendar is open to EVERYONE and it’s FREE! All you have to do is go to our calendar page here, fill in some basic information and you’ll be on the calendar for all to see. You can even upload a copy of your show poster. If you want to add this calendar to your web site or Facebook page we’ll be more than happy to set you up. We believe that everyone should be able to post their show info for all to see.


GIFT CERTIFICATES AVAILABLE

Why not give a New York AutoFest Gift Certificate to a friend? Or to yourself or a fellow club member for that matter? Each New York AutoFest Gift Certificate is good for admission of one vehicle to the judged showfield of any New York AutoFest car show and they never expire. The cost is only $15 which is a 25% savings over the standard $20 admission fee.

You can order gift certificates here.


2016 BEST IN SHOW CALENDAR
The 2016 New York AutoFest Best in Show calendar is available on Zazzle. It features every best in show vehicle form our 2015 show season so if you enjoyed the 2015 calendar you’ll surely want this one!
