About the Event

The FirebirdFest is a new and one of a kind event!  

Our local Firebird Car Club, called the I-55 FIREBIRDS, saw a big demand for a Firebird and Trans Am only event here in the Midwest!  But we wanted to keep it affordable and packed it all into one full 3 day weekend!   So we partnered with many popular attractions and businesses to put this inaugural event together for you to meet other Firebird lovers, make some new friends, and experience the best that our Gateway city has to offer.  It is also our hope to have over 200 Pontiac Firebirds and we expect to have one from every single year from 1967-2002!

Located entirely in the St Louis region, this event will include 5 FIREBIRD ONLY car shows, 70 mpg pace laps on a real oval Nascar/Indy track in your Firebird, entry to Nostalgia drags event, Smokey and the Bandit movie night at the Drive-in, Mississippi River Jump, 2 local museum tours, Cruise with Bandit and Buford, Salute to First Responders and approximately 200 miles of cruises!   

OUR MAIN OBJECTIVE:   We are donating approximately 20% of all proceeds to the BACKSTOPPERS INC organization which helps support families of fallen Fire Fighters, Police and First Responders, as well as the CCCO program which helps many in the community of St. Peters who have been faced with some tough challenges in life.   Thanks so much for your help with our chosen charities, it means a lot to us all, especially to these families who have sacraficed so much for their communities.

REFUND POLICY:  This is a rain or shine event with no refunds.  In the event there is continuous incliment weather, we may have to reschedule the event for later in the fall of 2021.    In the event that the CDC guidelines change and restirct us from gathering, it would be rescheduled also at a later date.
