The 14th year of the annual Barber Vintage Festival was presented by the Triumph Dealers of North America at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama. There was a Fan Guide available. It had a schedule of events that was very helpful and informative.





 
The promotors said this was their best year to date with a record breaking 79,336 people in attendance over the 3-day event of October 5 to 7, 2018











 
The 880-acre park is a multi-purpose racing facility built by George W. Barber and includes the museum with over 1,600 motorcycles which is open year-round and has more than a quarter million visitors each
year.




 
The area is well groomed and cool things to see everywhere.






 
While the event is about Vintage Motorcycles and Racing it also has the largest swap meet I have ever seen, and I attended with Berry Wardlaw of Accurate Engineering in Dothan, Alabama who set up a booth.

Traveling around from area to area was made easy by the event supplied trams.

Stopping in the paddock and seeing and talking to friends was a highlight. Sitting in one of these machines, like you would be if actually riding it was awesome.








 
As was being there when Glen fired up Double Trouble.

If you have never seen the Wall Of Death Show I highly recommend you do if you ever get the chance.

There was just so much to see and do that there is not room to list all of it here, so I suggest visiting the museum website.
