What is ZedFest?
The first ZedFest was held in Gilgandra back in 2004, and was organised by members of the Australian 300zx Owners' Assosciation forum as an opportunity for Z32 owners from around Australia to meet in person. This was back in the pre social-media days when bulletin-board type forums were the predmoninat way we communicated online. The event was a hit and has been run over every second Easter long-weekend since. 2024 will mark the 20th year of ZedFest, and the 11th ZedFest event.
What happens at ZedFest?
ZedFest is primarily about catching up in person with people that you might only otherwise interact with online. In 2024 the weekend will include a Friday night meet and greet, a Saturday morning show and shine, a Saturday night cruise through the city, a cruise up the famous Putty Rd on Sunday, and an awards presentation on Sunday night. We usually find time for a coffee, a meal, a drink, and a lot of banter during downtime at the motel. You can find more information about the planned events on the itinerary page.
Who can come to ZedFest?
Anybody! If you own a Z32 300zx, or have an interest in the Z32 300zx, you are welcome to join us at ZedFest. You can come for the weekend (the best way to experience ZedFest!) or just turn up to the events that interest you. Aus300zx is not a financial club, and there are no fees or membership requirements for you to get involved. We do ask you to register by completing a simple google form so that we can plan for the appropriate level of attendance. Interstate and intercity guests are welcome and are encouraged to stay at the Gateway Motel which will be our base of operations for the wekeend. You can find out how to register on this page.
Did somebody mention awards?
Yes! Anybody who attends ZedFest is eligible for an award. The majority of the awards are will be judged at the Saturday morning Show and Shine, but there will be some additional trophies on offer with less conventional criteria....
