    It's not just the 510 bucks it's mainly the quality or lack thereof. In recent years CI has really gone downhill. Big time.
    And I've been going since more than 25 years every year.

    Back to the Cavallino discussion then.

    Could not agree more - I went for about 10 years then they started to cut things like the yacht hope and all downhill - price was not the problem just the lack of umph

    I could be wrong, but I don’t think FCA International Meet is usually open to general public nor free to attend.

    I believe it’s for FCA (& International FOC) members only and for example, even to attend the Concours just as a spectator at 2019 Meet (in Scottsdale, AZ) requires members to register for the entire 4-5 day event at minimum of $$325/375.

    I'm unable to attend the FCA meet this year, however I did attend last year in Corning, NY, and I exhibited my 1989 328 GTB in the Concourse d'Elegance. It was open to the publis for free and held on the towns main street.

    The FCA is a non profit event, possibly the only non profit Ferrari event

    I believe (but could be mistaken) that the Corning event was anomaly, due to having been staged on public space/street.
    In my earlier statement, which included "usually", I was referring to similar events held at private venues, like the upcoming Scottsdale meet.

    Again, I could be mistaken, but usually these types of club events are not even publicly advertised for general public attendance and I've been to some that didn't allow spectator entries without being a member and having paid event registration.
    The point of my earlier statement was merely to caution anyone thinking they may be able to just walk-in to any such event and then be disappointed when denied entry or requested an unexpected(?) payment.

    Having been a member for about 10 years, I know FCA being a non-profit organization, but fees collected from attendees of various club events are likely to cover organizing costs, including space/venue rent, like host facilities for seminars, show, track, insurances, catering, etc...

    I have been to FCA annual both as spectators and as participants. You can def show up and not pay anything, it will depend on the location where the even is being held. But even on the ones that were in a private venue such as in Columbus in 2016, people did not have to pay to walk through the concours.
    I guess it will depend on the venue, but FCA typically does not charge anything for spectators.

    I strongly object to the price for spectator admission to the concorso, which was only $75 just a few years ago. The only reason I might go this year is because they are honoring the 328.

    That current price was set a couple years ago, and it’s very appropriate when you compare it to other US Concours D’Elegance in the same league. Cavallino is first rate, staged at a premier (and expensive) venue, and delivers the prestige it promises. I guess I’m a capitalist, so I have no issues with the owner (who’s the one that puts his blood sweat and tears into creating and sustaining this amazing show) making a good profit. I’m always amused when some people think these kind of events just happen and should be open to everyone for very little admission. It isn’t a swap meet. Of course, it isn’t for everyone.
