2017 Southeast Sharkfest

April 27, 2017 - April 30, 2017

ABOUT SOUTHEAST SHARKFEST 2017

This Year at Southeast Sharkfest

Join us to celebrate all that is “Big Coupe” in the foothills of the Appalacian Mountains at beautiful Chateau Elan in Braselton, GA. This year marks the 15th anniversary of Southeast Sharkfest!  With some wonderful driving nearby, a full service resort, and an unbeatable backdrop for our Saturday concours, this location should be thoroughly satisfying for the whole family.  In 2014, we officially opened judging categories for the e31 8-series and e9 CS coupe and have had participation from some beautiful examples.  We are looking forward to continuing to include and grow our big-coupe following.  The primary display area will be available for all e24’s, e31’s and e9’s; however – as has always been our philosophy – all registered BMW’s that do not fall into the primary categories will still be included and displayed (and eligible for the peoples choice and crusty award).

The Inn at Chateau Elan will offer us our centralized location for registartion with easy access to onsite dining.  The bulk of our rooms will be at the onsite Hampton Inn which opened just this year.

Southeast Sharkfest History

Southeast Sharkfest began as an annual, weekend-long BMW gathering, focused primary on one of BMW’s most beautiful, classic automobiles: The BMW 6 series. With a production run of 13 years, the 6-series was the premier touring coupe of the 1980’s (produced from 1976 to 1989). The 6 series body was offered in various forms ranging from the original carbureted 630Cs to the M6 and M635CSi supercars (of their time). The full e24 model lineup includes the 628CSi, 630Cs, 633CSi, 635CSi, L6, M6 and Euro M635CSi. In 2004, the 6-series was re-introduced with all the form and function of a modern luxury vehicle. With a sexy redesign for 2013, the modern iteration of the big coupe is still produced to this day.

In 2014, Southeast Sharkfest was happy to welcome into the fold the e9 CS and e31 8-Series and introduced specific judging classes for these chassis.

Southeast Sharkfest allows owners of these rare and beautiful vehicles to gather in an atmosphere of common interest and discuss all things BMW (and many things not). In previous years, we have incorporated vintage motorcycles and some amazing examples of BMW’s finest and most historic designs. Though historically “six-centric,” registration is open to ALL models of BMW’s – we are – and will continue to be – wholly non-exclusive.
