British Field Day 2017 at Liberty Park, Saturday, June 17, 9 AM – 2 PM
British Field Day (BFD) will be held at Liberty Park again this year. All British cars and bikes in any condition from 100-point restorations to works in progress or an old daily beater are welcome. All area British car/bike owners and clubs are invited to participate. Call your friends and fellow club members to get them coming to the event!
There will be a road course set up on a closed access road inside the park. It promises to be as noisy and challenging as in previous years!
Liberty Park has many amenities including one of the largest and best playgrounds in the city, the Tracy Aviary and a small amusement park with a Ferris wheel and merry-go-round. Even if your family doesn’t share your passion for LBCs (little British cars), there will be plenty for them to do while you are getting your fix!
The Salt Lake Arts Academy, a public charter school with emphasis on the arts, will be providing volunteers to assist with the event so the organizers can have more time for some fun, too! Publicity for BFD and the running of the event that day with BFD oversight will be handled by the Liberty Wells Community Council. Liberty Park is part of their neighborhood community.
There will be food available at the event. Plans are for a breakfast oriented food truck and a second more lunch oriented truck to be there.
Liberty Park is located between 500 East & 700 East, and 900 South & 1300 South. The BFD event will be held in the northeast quadrant of the park. Enter off 1300 South and drive east and north about a quarter of the way around the park. You will see the event on the left.
Please help support the Salt Lake Arts Academy and Liberty Wells Community Council by bringing your cars and bikes out to join in the fun. Registration starts at 8 AM. We hope to have most bikes and cars in place by 9 AM. We encourage folks displaying vehicles to try to stay until 3 PM, but if you can only make it for a couple of hours, that is fine, too! The registration fee is $10 per bike or car. The maximum registration fee is $20 per registrant regardless of the number of cars or bikes they bring. A $5 donation is requested per adult admission. Kids 12 and under are free.
Although it is not required, you can speed up the registration process by printing out the registration form, filling it out, and bringing it along with you on the 17th of June.
For questions regarding BFD or American with Disabilities (ADA) accommodation please contact: Bill Davis, 801-860-6975.
Setup is Friday evening at 6:00 pm, and if you would like to volunteer just show up and bring a hammer and a staple gun. The BFD event itself is on Saturday June 17.
