THE ED WETTACH LOVE OF THE AUTOMOBILE AWARD

We apologize for not listing all of the Wettach and Collums family in our Recap of the 13th Annual Renaissance Euro Fest, then it occurred to me that many Euro Fest participants don't know about Ed and therefore we share the following with you.

This year's award went to the Turner Family, Kent, Becky & Stephen

Included in the photo is Eleanor Wettach, her son Webb Collums his wife Holly and their daughter Hanna. Also pictured is Ed & Eleanor's son Eddie the IVth and their grandson, Master Edward the Vth.

This award is presented to a person or family that has supported the Renaissance in a significant way with entries, volunteerism, year around efforts and many other ways of helping raise the bar yearly.

Ed was the Ferrari dealer in Jackson and then he and Eleanor purchased Ferrari of Atlanta. They were instrumental in the formation of The Renaissance Euro Fest from day one. Without being asked, Ed volunteered, "I can bring some cars over from Atlanta to help you" and indeed he did. In our first year, 2008, most of us were on pins and needles with a wait and see attitude but he rolled in with his big tractor trailer rig, with it's exciting Ferrari logos on the sides. As the ramp was lowered, first off was an Enzo, followed by a Dino, then The Spice Race car and finally a 250 GT. I could hardly breathe or talk, I and all there that day were excited beyond description! Needless to say Ed had us coming off of the starting line in a Grand Style. He will never be forgotten and his memory abounds in the Renaissance Euro Fest.

GREAT DAY, GREAT SHOW FOR THE 13TH ANNUAL RENAISSANCE EURO-FEST OCTOBER 1st-2nd, 2021

The weather had the 13th Annual Renaissance Euro Fest off to an iffy start Saturday, October 2nd, but as the day went on, the skies cleared and the crowd started building. Once again the smiles and excitement were abound and we were thankful for a great day. Hats off and thanks to the many who make this event possible, The Renaissance and it's outstanding staff team, sponsors, volunteers, Ridgeland Police Department, the many appreciative merchants at The Renaissance and finally, a great group of owners who graciously shared their passion with us. Visit our Homepage to view the 2021 show winners and also click the photo album links to see hundreds of photos from the show.

Oh What a Day!

Beautiful autos and motorcycles, coupled with perfect weather, brought thousands of fans to the 2020 Renaissance Euro Fest for a most enjoyable day. The rescheduling from the previous Saturday proved to be a fortunate choice, as the weather and atmosphere could not have been better! A large Thank You to all those that made it happen, sharing their Passion with others.

Friday's Renaissance Road Rally Escorted Drive hosted approximately 25 autos driving through Madison County, then back to the Renaissance for the Packet Pick Up Reception. The next day entries began parking at 7:00 and by 9:00 a beautiful site was set.

The Legends of the Interstates had an impressive turn out as well, with approximately 75 autos gathered in the Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and BMW Corrals on the East Lawn of the Renaissance. This event is primarily for newer autos or for those owners who just want to relax with their cars and friends.
