Kimber Festival 2020
April 3 -5, 2020

The Kimber Festival brings together enthusiasts who have a keen interest in M.G. history. Organized as an academic conference, the program consists of presentations about all M.G.s with topics that may include design and production, technical discussions, competitors and competitions and more. You do not need to be a NEMGTR member to present or attend. All MG enthusiasts are welcome!

The registration desk for the Kimber Festival will open at 1:00 p.m. Friday at the Buffalo Transportation Pierce-Arrow Museum. You will be able to take a relaxed tour of the facility during the afternoon. Once checked in at registration, those who wish to set up their Flea Market table will be able to do so. Participants must pre-register for flea market space (check box on the registration form to ensure your space). Due to space reasons, no walk-in flea market tables will be available. There will be a buffet dinner and our “Cecil Kimber Birthday Celebration” during the evening. 

On Saturday our seminars will start at the Museum at 9:00 am and continue until 12:00 noon. There will be a break for a buffet lunch and then the seminars will resume at 1:00 pm until about 4:00 pm. After the presentations you’ll have a chance to meet other participants and presenters, visit the flea market until our social hour. Our final dinner will be served at 6:00 pm. A cash bar will be available from the end of presentations until the event closes at approximately 9:00 pm.

For those who may not be a car nut, an alternate program is offered on Saturday and will include a tour to Frank Lloyd Wright’s fantastic Martin House, a Private Lunch at a Buffalo club and a visit to the world-famous Buffalo Basilica. The activities for this program are $35 per person. 

In addition to the presenters we will be having our Audience “Best Book” Presentation – Tell us about YOUR best automotive book of the year or the best MG book you’ve read/used. Bring it along and tell us about it!

Your registration fee of $175 covers all museum entry fees, presentations and meals on Friday night and Saturday, flea market table (if required), the special Cecil Kimber birthday celebration. A cash bar will be available Friday and Saturday nights during the dinners.
