CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (June 16, 2020) – The 2020 Chattanooga Motorcar Festival will remain on schedule for Oct. 16-18, 2020, in downtown Chattanooga, event founder Byron DeFoor announced today.
“We are continuing our plans and preparations to hold our second Chattanooga Motorcar Festival this October with the expectation that all businesses will be operating by then and sporting events will be back on schedule, so that we can all enjoy the many activities that bring us together,” said DeFoor.
“We look forward to welcoming everyone back to Chattanooga. It will be a busy month, as many sporting events have been rescheduled for October. We thank all our fans, car collectors, racers and local business owners for continuing to support the Chattanooga Motorcar Festival, which benefits neuroscience research. We will do everything in our power to ensure a successful, safe and fun event for everyone.”
Added DeFoor, “Here’s something you should know: Chattanooga’s motto, years ago, was ‘Chattanooga Can Do.’ After EPB Telecom, a local firm, developed the fastest Internet in the Western Hemisphere, Chattanooga came to be known as ‘GIG City.’ That led us to the motto of the Chattanooga Motorcar Festival: ‘Get In and Go.’
“We Can Do, so let’s Get In and Go!”
