It is that time of year again!  For MBCA to announce its Largest National Event, StarFest®

The Mercedes-Benz Club or America holds the largest gathering of Mercedes-Benz Enthusiasts on the even years, so for 2012, StarFest® will be...….

Drum Roll Please……..

For 2012 StarFest® will be held at the “Jewel of the Desert” The Arizona Biltmore Resort in Phoenix Arizona September 28 to October 3!

The Biltmore with its 39 acres of lush gardens will be the host for all StarFest® activities including the StarFest® 2012 Mercedes-Benz Concours which will be held on the hotel's Squaw Peak Lawn and the Cottage Court. This is sure to make for one of the most striking and beautiful Concours venues in the history of MBCA.

This world-class venue will be an exciting place for members and their families. On the Biltmore’s grounds are seven tennis courts, gardens and eight swimming pools and a full-service resort spa, salon and fitness center, adjacent are two 18 hole PGA golf courses. The Arizona Biltmore is not only a great place to stay; it is a destination all its own! Bring the kids, grandkids, bring the entire family, and with the Biltmore’s discounted StarFest® hotel rates, you have no reason not to enjoy this kind of resort!

StarFest® 2012 will feature an expanded two-day Mercedes-Benz Concours d’Elegance. Saturday will feature the judging and then Sunday, the vehicles will be on display for the public to view, along with celebrity guests and media interviews. The StarFest® weekend will also feature a series of seminars and exhibits on automotive restoration, presentation, and preservation.

Firebird International Raceway will be the site for the StarFest® Track events. Accelerations runs will be run on the same 1/4 mile drag-strip used for NHRA events complete with Christmas Tree Starter Lights and Electronic Timing Scoreboard. Just like the NHRA rails and funny cars! Time Trials will be on Firebird's 1.6 mile main track. So lots of fun for both drivers and spectators!
