    I'll be staying with a friend in Hendersonville if I attend. I'm kinda nw here so I'd appreciate it if someone would tell me what Minipalooza is. Is it similar to MOTD on a smaller scale?

    MINIPalooza is an event that we have done for 7 years (this year). It is a bit different from MOTD as the number of cars are much less, there are usually no vendors, and the venue shifts. For the first 5 years, the event started in old Salem in Winston Salem. We would drive north of town up to and over the VA border on nice twisty roads. The day would end at a local NC winery for a cookout. Last year we decided to shift locations and called the September event, "MINIPalooza at the Beach." Held in Wilmington, NC, we had our Saturday dinner on the stern of the Battleship North Carolina. We had a group picture taken in front of the ship with 114 MINIs and a participant total of nearly 200. This year we are holding, "MINIPalooza in the Mountains," with our venue in and around Asheville, NC. There will be a number of drives and events.

    The cut off date for holding the pricing and our block of rooms has passed.

    But fear not!

    The General Manager at the Ramada River Ridge has agreed to honor our group rate, if they have a room available for the date(s) you are requesting.

    Get Your MINIPalooza Rooms Before They're All Gone!

    As Lorraine noted above, the cut off date for holding the pricing and our block of rooms has passed. However, I just checked and the Ramada River Ridge has agreed to honor our group rate, if they have a room available for the date(s) you are requesting.

    As of today (8/24) they have 10 Double Queens: $96 + tax for each evening, Friday 9/5 and Saturday 9/6, and 2 Suites: $125 + tax for each evening, Friday 9/5 and Saturday 9/6.

    Please book soon
    as these rooms are not reserved for our group but are being rate matched by the General Manager. Mention the MINIPalooza event and THMMC to get these prices.
