What are the biggest Corvette only Events in the United States? 
Let's define "Big" as over 500 Corvettes.

I know of these:
If you know of a website and/or dates for the events you list, please mention them.  Also, if you happen to know an approximate count of Vettes in attendance, mention that too.

Thanks!

This is by far the largest Corvette show I've seen in the Great Northwest.  I don't think we have enough vettes to pull off a Carlise type show but 300 or so vettes in one show is a lot for this area. I took a 2nd place last year in 68-82 class.  This years show is August 26th Thumbs%20Up

Ya know, their website said 14,000+ over the course of the weekend, so that may be 14,000 total for 3 days, which maybe means many repeats.  So perhaps it is really more like 5,000 distinct Vettes.

The Black Hills Corvette Classic, hosted by the Souix Falls Corvette Club, is an annual run across South Dakota.  It starts out on the east coast of the state at Souix Falls and caravans west across the state to Spearfish in the northern part of the Black Hills.
 
I don't have a recent count of cars but I know the number has been between 500 and 1,000.  This one is on my list of events to make sometime in the next few years.

I'll see what the boss is doing.  I have it on the calendar, as of today no one has requested that time off for vacations, having a small crew has it's benefits.  Lets talk more about it in Carson City, maybe get a showing of C3vr to cruise in together.
everytime I am at a show with you and your vette, you beat me out of hardware and you also win the flashy vest too.

Norsky, my wife is from Rapid City, and she's got a brother in Western MN.  I'm trying to convince her to make the trip.  Not this year, but I'm hoping maybe in '08.  Would love to see you there.  I'll keep you in mind as planning gets closer.  I figure we stay overnight with her brother, then trip in to Soiux Falls in the morning.  I think it'd be a great trip and I love the idea of driving that whole way in a caravan of Corvettes!!  Even if we don't break the speed limit, we can do 75!!

This year marks the 14th annual "Vettes at the Beach" show in Sylvan Beach on the Eastern shore of Oneida Lake in Central NY. Last years show drew its biggest attendance, 473 entries. It aint no Carlisle either but it's growing. Even as big as Carlisle is, it started out small. Also, this year MidAmerica is sending up some reps. I think they'll be impressed and maybe next year send up "who knows what?" And all of the proceeds have gone to local charities such as the Shriners, Breast Cancer Research, and Food Banks just to name a few. It's the last Sunday in July. Check it out, I think you'll be impressed too. A website connection is posted on this sites show schedule. rick jay2007-06-06 21:07:29
