Unfortunately, we just heard the news that Holley made the call to cancel LS Fest West in Las Vegas due to the Covid-19 situation. Nevada, like many other states, is reopening businesses with a phased approach. At this time, no one has any idea of when large crowds will be permitted to gather. However, Holley will be refunding those who prepurchased tickets as soon as possible.
Blane Burnett, Holley’s events & content manager, says, “We’re grateful for our loyal Holley LS Fest fans that didn’t give up on the event. We know they were really looking forward to the event, and so were we. We pour our hearts into this event and love seeing everyone enjoy it as much as we do. Rest assured, we will be back in 2021, delivering more fun than ever!”
However, there is good news. According to Burnett, LS Fest West pre-registered participants will receive a courtesy care package from Holley. It will contain an event T-shirt, event poster, and a collectible pin. If you weren’t pre-registered and still want a t-shirt, you can still purchase one. Burnett says, “This 2020 LS Fest West shirt will also be available at www.holley.com in recognition of ‘The Most Awesome Event That Never Happened.’ Stay tuned to LS Fest’s social media over the June 12-14 weekend, as we virtually celebrate the awesome LS engine with content from previous event years, LS Fest West related giveaways, product giveaways, and more!”
The good news is LS Fest East is still on schedule for September 11-13 in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and Holley is doing something special. Burnett affirms, “Holley will also randomly select ten lucky LS Fest West pre-registrants to receive a free entry into this fall’s LS Fest East event, along with some travel money to help get them there!”
We expect this event will be bigger than ever and we hope to see you there.
