Vets ‘n Vettes presented by Mobil 1

May 11 – May 13, 2023

In 2008 we began a tradition of honoring our veterans with a new event, Vets ‘n Vettes. To coordinate the Museum’s acknowledgment of Military Appreciation Month, we at the National Corvette Museum are planning to move our longstanding Vets ‘n Vettes celebration from November to May 11th – 13th.  We are very excited to include this event in the nationwide celebration of the United States Military.

Thursday kicks off with a half day at the NCM Motorsports Park. Complimentary lunch served to all! We will celebrate Friday and Saturday with road tours and a luncheon. The event offers veterans, servicemen and women and those who want to support them, a comfortable place to meet and share stories and experiences.

Lifetime registration is $35pp, member registration is $40pp and non-member registration is $50pp.

Online registration closes at 9:00am central time on Friday, April 14. There are no refunds for activities after online registration closes. All activities are open to Event Registrants only. On-line registrants will receive a hard card credential, lanyard, and event pin.
