Dripfest 6
« on: June 11, 2013, 11:35:36 pm »

Old City Oil Drippers' Dripfest 6 is on! Set your calendars for July 20. The show this year will be expanding to include all air-cooled cars and motorcycles (pre-1975). The show will be held at Hibernia County Park in Coatesville, just minutes from Rt. 30 and Rt. 82. Grounds will be grass with shade (around the perimeter), camping will be on the field in a designated area. I will be posting a link to download maps and driving directions. This year there will be a small admission fee for show cars ($5); the donation will be going to both the Chester County Food Bank and the Friends of Hibernia, who are co-sponsoring with D'Ambrosio Automall. Food will be available starting around 8A with breakfast fare (probably coffee and donuts for the set-up crew) and will be there all day. Showtime will be between 10 and 3. If it rains, the show will be moved to a paved lot nearby - so let's hope for a clear day!

Additional information:

Camping is available on site. Camping area is a group area with plenty of room for campers and/or tents. Fire pits are on site for cooking and campfires. Larger rigs (motor homes/trailers, for the adventurous) can be accommodated right on the show field. Other camping facilities are available for those who wish to spend a weekend in the woods; you will need to contact Hibernia Park directly to secure locations as they are on a first come - first served basis. Maps of the area will be posted shortly. There is a lake available for boating and fishing within walking distance of the show field.

Live bands will be performing all day and food will be provided by the Friends of Hibernia, a group dedicated to preserving the Park's heritage as an iron plantation. The Hibernia Mansion, a historic ironmaster estate, will be open for tours on Saturday.

Here's an aerial map of the grounds showing our preliminary parking plan. Campers have the advantage of being under cover of trees for the most part; space available will accommodate quite a few vehicles (shown in purple). Overflow can park on the field itself, and fires are permitted (on the field) in a fire pit. No large bonfires however... Vendors we'll try to keep on the edge near the shade, everyone else is on the grass field. I will have more detailed maps of the outlying camping areas if anyone wants not to be part of the group camp area, however, you must contact the Park directly to reserve a spot. The outlying campgrounds are primitive (no hookups) with pit facilities. Entryway roads are rocky and rutted, so low riders are on their own. Watch those oil pans!

Group camping is both in the trees and in the field. Loop road campground is within a short (50 yds) distance to the show field. The lake campground is a little longer hike, maybe 150 yards. The lake campground is more suited to small campers and tents (pop-ups, teardrop trailers, etc). The loop road campground can accommodate slightly larger vehicles, but I would venture that a motor home of 24' would be the maximum or a truck/trailer combo of the same length.
