What are some of offroad events/venues with a large audience size, Ford market penetration and lots of media exposure in this coming year? Particulary big time stuff in the Southeast, Northwest and Texas/Oklahoma? A brief description of the event (1-2 lines) and the approximate location and it you know, the date (not needed, can find if you don't have it).

Your feedback will be welcome, and I'll let you in on what it's for towards the end of the thread (I don't want to skew the replies).

The events need to draw thousands, not hundreds. Do these shows fit that?

I don't think Mudfest ever had thousands of people in there at once, also, there is talk in the Florida Chapter that they're not doing Mudfest anymore. I sure wish they would cause I've always wanted to go there when David Allen Coe was there.

Now I guess the new place to go is in Central Florida and called Muddigras. I'm trying to talk Steve into going even if the Bronco isn't ready. We can always take the Jeep or 4 wheeler.
MuddiGras! | Welcome

I don't see how anyone could do an Offroad event that would draw thousands that would have the place to put that many people and their vehicles. Would need a lot of land and a lot more policing.

It doesn't need to be an event like racing, or where people drive, shows are fine.

Carlene i belive you are right, but mudfest did draw thousands of people. This year they started charging to enter though, it was like 25 dollars a day, then the one in the fall it went up to like 75 a day, i think mudfest as we know it is dead, mudigras will be the next big one.

Been there, done that already. Need other avenues in other parts of the country - not more desert racing.
