4ngiefest 2012 welcomes All German Cars.
What is 4ngiefest you speak of?
4ngiefest started in 2007 as a casual local area BMW fanatic meet. It expanded through venues such as the online car forum community, and magazine articles. In 2008, in association with ClubBimmer.com we drew a crowd of over 300 BMWs and successfully set a record in the Guinness World Record books.
Being the 6th annual 4ngiefest, we are striving to make it appealing to everyone attending. Every year we collect donations and send money to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Through merchandise sales and private donations, 4ngiefest was able to donate nearly $2,000 to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society last year and we plan to exceed that again this year.
And this is a German Car Show?
Yes! 4ngiefest is THE east coast german car show everyone is talking about. For 6 years running, we have gathered people from all over the US (and even europe!) for our german car meet. Really, the intent of the event is for our Atlanta charity benfit, so we can donate to the LLS. Rather than advertising an atlanta charity and compete with everyone else looking for it; we draw attention by having an event that the whole family can enjoy for the day. We have hundreds of cars from all over the US, just to attend 4ngiefest, the original east coast bmw atlanta charity event. Prizes from our various sponsors are given out at our annual raffle, and visitors can check out sponsor tables and booths to see whats new in the performance german auto world.
Why the donate to the LLS?
We have dedicated our time to promoting and organizing every event in memory of a loved one that our founder lost to Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) in 2004. Since then, our mission has be to gather people and proceeds for the benefit of cancer research. 4ngiefest will always be held in respect for cancer research and donating to the LLS. This atlanta based charity car show hopes you all attend so see what we have to offer. Even if you dont have a finely tuned german car, thats no problem we welcome all guests.
Why is it called 4NGIEfest?
We hear this question more than anything else.. Angie, (known as 4ngie on several BMW/ import online communities) started this event for BMW enthusiasts like herself. 4ngiefest was named after Angie by a fellow fanatic because we hope to one day be the East Coast version of Bimmerfest.. although we have a long way to go. Also because saying the 5th Annual Atlanta BMW meet in Atlanta, GA is just too much to say.
It is important for people who don’t know 4ngie to understand the humor behind the name. 4ngie does not host this event for attention or recognition. In fact, many people have attended every year and still don’t know her. We do this for the love of German Cars and to raise money in memory of a loved one.
As the infamous Kpeng once said: “4ngies are hard to find at 4ngiefest. Kpengs are everywherez.”
What’s New for 2012?
We finally have a venue chosen! 4ngiefest ‘12 will be held at North Georgia State Fair, Marietta, GA
