Past ZFEST Info
After 12 years of the BMW Hosted "Roadster Homecoming" at the BMW Factory in Greer South Carolina, BMW NA decided not to continue the event. At this time, ZSCCA stepped into the breach and decided to continue to host the event and renamed it ZFEST.

ZFEST 2009 was the largest independent gathering of BMW Z1, Z3, Z4 and Z8 Roadsters and Coupes anywhere in the world. ZFEST is an event planned and implemented by the ZSCCA, BMW Z Series Car Club of America and all BMW Z Series Enthusiasts were invited.

The first ZFEST was held at The King's Island Resort in Cincinnati. Many events and drives were planned throughout the weekend. Highlights included cruising on the Ohio river on the Belle of Cincinnati Riverboat on Friday evening and an awards dinner at the host hotel on Saturday night.

For ZFEST 2010, we took a trip to the West coast and the Hyatt Hotel in Valencia, CA. This location just north of Los Angeles offered a great location with access to some famous roads like Mulholland Drive, Malibu Canyon and the Pacific Coast Highway.

For ZFEST 2011, 2012 and 2013 the event return to it's roots and Embassy Suites in Greenville, SC. Highlights included access to the BMW Factory, with special ZSCCA/ZFEST personal group tours to ICAR and all the Great Curvy Roads in the Upstate South Carolina and Western North Carolina area.  

ZFEST 2014 and 2015 were held at The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel in State College, PA. The team provided a wide array of events and activities that were matched by the great roads in the local area.

ZFEST 2016 headed back south of the Mason-Dixon line to beautiful and eclectic Asheville, NC.  From the secluded setting of the Crowne Plaza - Asheville, the event was extended to a full week to take advantage of all the amazing roads and activities in the area. 

ZFEST 2017 swung back to the West Coast, landing in the coastal city of Ventura and the Ventura Beach Marriott.  There were breathtaking canyon carving drives, a boat trip to the Channel Islands, and some truly spectacular dining experiences. 

ZFEST 2018 traveled to middle America for the first time.  The bustling city of Branson, Missouri during May, 2018.  Our host hotel was the amazing Chateau on the Lake.
