2014 NCM 20th Anniversary Celebration

Celebrating 20 years of growth and changes, the 20th Anniversary of the National Corvette Museum August 27-30, 2014, will be celebrated with the arrival of the National Corvette Caravans with participants from around the globe.  As with past Labor Days this celebration is a member-driven event, which unites friends, family and enthusiasts for a look back on the Museum’s history and future! Those registered can enjoy the Museum with its many displays. Join us for our Grand Opening of the new NCM Motorsports Park with scheduled parade laps around the road course. Many scenic self guided road tours to choose from, special video presentations and seminars, raffles, the annual open Membership meeting and more during this event in honor of your help and support! The event will also include the Lifetime/VIP dinner, 10-year/15-year/20-year member recognition, Ambassador Luncheon, and the “Corvette Hall of Fame” Induction Ceremony and banquet where we will induct John Heinricy, Jerry Burton, & Dave MacDonald into the prestigious and elite group of recipients who have made a significant contribution to Corvette history. 

On-line registration is now closed. All activities are open to Event Registrants only. You MUST BE REGISTERED for the event to attend the seminars and participate in MSP parade laps. Those pre-registered will receive a personalized event credential, lanyard, event pin and dash plaque. Lifetime registration is no-charge, member registration is $15pp and non-member registration is $25pp. Registration $5 per person to join a caravan.

All Caravans will enter Gate A upon arrival and exit at Gate D for parade lap around the Museum. No stopping.
