Beachcomber Logo

Often referred to as the world’s largest moving automotive event, the National Corvette Caravan is a celebration of America’s Sports Car, culminating in Bowling Green, Kentucky for the anniversary celebration of the National Corvette Museum. Hosted only once every five years, the next event is slated for Labor Day Weekend 2024 and will mark the Museum’s 30th Anniversary.

Here is a YouTube link to get a glimpse of what this event is about!!!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xL0IOmdJwuA.

If you’re interested in joining the Caravan event, you can register with our region’s caravan.  We are part of the North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Maryland region. Below is the itinerary for our region:

  • Monday August 26, 2024: Asheville NC. Registration packet pickup. Evening Meet and Greet.
  • Tuesday August 27, 2024: Asheville NC. Registration packet pickup. Lunch at Deer Park Inn at the Biltmore. Depart for Sevierville TN.
  • Wednesday August 28, 2024: Sevierville TN. Depart for Bowling Green KY.

To join our regional caravan, you need to fill out and mail in the form located here ($150/person).  Know that when you fill out this regional form to mail, you can check a box if you need a room in Bowling Green and what is your departure date from Bowling green.  Other Beachcombers who have done so, received information about the hotel arrangements to be made in Bowling Green, Asheville and Sevierville (more below).  Know that Kim Sheldon is our regional Captain.  Her e-mail is: kimsheldonsc@gmail.com and Bob Meyer is the Virginia Captain. His email is: bobmeyerva@gmail.com.

Regional caravans will form and join other caravans as they travel across the United States to meet in Bowling Green, Kentucky for four days of festivities at the National Corvette Museum. The Museum is located at I-65, exit 28 in South Central Kentucky and is open daily, 8am to 5pm Central Time. Stay up to date with the Museum by subscribing to emails online here.

You will also need to register with the National Corvette Museum here (per person: Lifetime NCM Members – $50, NCM Members – $60, Non-members – $85).  Once registered the Museum should help with hotels in Bowling Green.  While in Bowling Green, expect to check in on Wednesday, August 28th, checking out on Saturday (August 31st), Sunday (September 1st), or however long you wish to stay in the area.  Beachcombers who are going may organize a follow-on trip or arrange a group to drive home (more to follow).

Here’s what I know…  REGISTER AND BOOK NOW!!!

Register for both the regional caravan and at the Museum with the links provided above.  Book your hotel night in Asheville, NC.  Book your hotel night in Sevierville, TN.  Book your nights in Bowling Green, KY.  As we get closer BCC will announce what will follow as related to the drive home or another follow-on trip itinerary.

Other Beachcombers have blazed the trail through the registrations and hotel bookings.  Regional Caravan information for hotels in Bowling Green, KY, Asheville, NC and Sevierville, TN is here.  Note also, the hotels in Asheville, NC also have the same rate for the Sunday night before (August 25th) for those who wish to start early!  I also believe that if you register at the Museum, the registration package/email will help with room arrangements during your stay in Bowling Green.

Heldur Liivak has booked the following: Monday, August 26th in Asheville – the Double Tree by Hilton-Biltmore ($139 plus taxes and fees), Tuesday, August 27th in Sevierville, TN – Comfort Suites ($109 plus taxes and fees), Wed-Sun, August 28th, September 1st in Bowling Green KY – Hampton Inn ($247/night INCLUDING taxes and fees). We can all follow suit.  To receive these rates for all of the bookings through the regional caravan, tell the reservationist that you’re with the Carolinas/Virginia/Maryland caravan.

On December 1st, I called the Asheville DoubleTree hotel directly at 828-274-1800.  They are not sold out for check in on Monday, August 26th, so don’t delay!

Here are the hotels for Tuesday night, August 27th in Sevierville, TN:

  • Comfort Inn $109 + taxes and fees, phone#: 865-933-3131
  • Hampton Inn $129 + taxes and fees, phone#: 865-465-0590

Mentioned for Sevierville for Tuesday night was the Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott but do not have rates there.  Their phone number is: 865-933-3033.

I’m not planning to go, so for anyone who has navigated through these registrations and bookings, please let me know what you’ve found.  I’ll also start a sign-up/RSVP soon to help all know who is going.
