Photos: Vintage Torque Fest 2023
Truly one of THE coolest events is taking over the Dubuque County Fairgrounds this Friday, May 5th, and Saturday, May 6th, in Vintage Torque Fest. It's a mix of the vintage lifestyle and a huge fund raiser for families of children that are suffering heart defects.
This is a great way to kick-off the warm weather season with amazing bands, a swap meet, mini-bike races, vintage cycle exhibition, dirt drag racing, demo derby action, vendors from around the country, camping, good food, and lots of classic cars & motorcycles.
Spectator drags start at 5pm today. Winner of Spectator Drags will receive $200 in Summit Gift Cards and 2nd place will receive $100 in Summit Gift Cards. Friday night the Demo Derby takes over at the Dubuque County Fairgrounds. Smashing, crashing and cruising; all to raise funds for kids with heart problems. Amazing. And don’t miss the flame-throwing car exhibition at 9pm.
And I mentioned music, right? Loads of bands take you through the evening hours. Hair-metal, blue-grass, country, rockabilly, and jam band. You name it and you can hear it at Vintage Torque Fest.
Today I got to spend a few hours hanging around Vintage Torque Fest. The smell of delicious food fills the camp grounds. Music is everywhere! 3 stages of unique tunes keep the party hopping. Classic cars, mini bikes, drag races, and loads of amazing vendors and classic cars to take in. If you happen to be on the fence about this event, hopefully the following photos will get you to the fairgrounds for Vintage Torque Fest 2023. Check it out!
