Event Description

TheĀ Americana International FestivalĀ is Europe’s #1 American lifestyle event and it just keeps on growing. The show regularly attracts more than 30,000 weekender’s, exhibitors and day visitors.

This massive tribute to the USA is unique in its widely ranging attractions that appeal to tens of thousands of like-minded people from all over the world. For well over three decades the event has given its faithful supporters a long weekend of cool American music, great cars, motorcycles, trucks, RV’s from the early 1900s to the present.

Organisers Chris & Bev Jackson, from Stapleford Nottingham, are both confirmed classic car and bike nuts. Long standing club members of the two biggest American car clubs in the country (AACUK & AACNW), they have turned this one time small local show into the biggest and longest running event of its kind in Europe.site_03

By taking a slice of the ‘American Dream’ they have created an amazing weekend that has no equal anywhere outside of the USA. Much more than a car show or music festival it’s all of these combined into one massive fun-filled family event.

The Saturday and Sunday auto/bike displays are second to none with a huge number of top class cars and motorcycles entering the specially judged ‘show and shine’ displays. With forty prestigious awards on offer competition will be strong.

For those who love the music of the 50s, 60s , 70s and 80s the 2013 event had forty-two popular artistes from the USA/EUROPE/UK performing a great mixture of rock’n'roll/country/r&b/blues/alternative music from the last five decades.

Mix all that with hundreds associated trade stands, Fashion Show hosted by boobookitty couture, side-shows, amusements, auto/bike club displays, children’s amusements, talent contests, Ride The Raging Bull, Flight Simulators, tattooist, line-dance & jive tuition, on site camping facilities, four bars, high quality food vendors & so much more to see and do.
