The first annual Riverside Chattanooga Spring Meet will be held at the First Tennessee Pavilion in Downtown Chattanooga on March 26. Entry is free to spectators. All makes and models are welcome - from Euros, to Japanese imports, to American muscle. There will be motorcycles as well.
Matthew Skudlarek and Mason Gavin have long discussed the thought of bringing an event like Riverside Chattanooga to the Chattanooga area.
The indoor parking at the venue will hold a little over 100 preregistered vehicles and vendors, including SouthrnFresh, Adrift Productions, Atlanta Air Ride and more.
The north parking lot will park around 250 more preregistered vehicles, as well as food vendors from the Chattanooga area.
Organizers said their main priorities are to keep this a Chattanooga-themed event and to support local businesses.
There will be beer sales and many food choices. The Bitter Alibi, co-owned by Mr. Skudlarek, will be donating a few kegs, as well as Chattanooga Brewing Company. Free EPB wifi will be accessible, and the skate park will be open all day.
This is not a competition, but is a place to appreciate each other's cars and to spend time with friends, said organizers.
