After 12 years of the BMW-hosted “Roadster Homecoming” at the BMW Factory in Greer South Carolina, BMW NA decided not to continue the event. At that time ZSCCA, Z Series Car Club of America, stepped into the breach and decided to host the event. We renamed it ZFEST.


The first ZFEST was held in 2009 and was the largest independent gathering of BMW Z1, Z3, Z4 and Z8 Roadsters and Coupes anywhere in the world. In subsequent years ZSCCA has continued to host the event and all BMW Z Series enthusiasts are invited whether or not they are members of ZSCCA. The celebration of our Zs is self-supported, relying on registration fees, hundreds of hours of members' volunteer power, and donations from loyal and generous supporters.

2009—Cincinnati, Ohio
