This year’s Fierorama will be our 17th annual event! The Fierorama show will be taking place on Sunday, September 9, 2012 at Pottawatomie Park which is located at 8 North Ave in St. Charles, IL along the wooded banks of the Fox River near the downtown St. Charles shopping district; Northwest of the intersection of Route 64 (North Ave) and Route 25.

Our host hotel is still the Holiday Inn Express located at 1600 East Main Street (also known as Route 64 or North Avenue) in St. Charles, IL. Call 630-584-5300 to make reservations. Remember to ask for the “Fierorama Special Rate” of $82/night, which includes a free hot breakfast bar, newspaper, fitness center, playground, and heated outdoor pool.
NOTE: You need to make reservations BEFORE August 18, 2012.

There are several car washes located minutes from the show field for your convenience. Tyler Wash at 503 Tyler Road (630-377-6286) is located one block south from the Holiday Inn and has both manual and automatic touch-less facilities.

Join in for two days of fun with your Fiero friends from around the country. St. Charles and its neighboring city, Geneva, both offer a variety of antique shopping, skate parks, and delicious dinning experiences. On Saturday, September 8, 2012, we will have a Poker Run to take you through the surrounding communities. Meet at the Holiday Inn Express parking lot at 2:30pm. The first Fieros will head out at 3:00pm. At 6:00pm our traditional Fierorama pizza party will take place at Gino’s East across the street from the host hotel.

On Sunday, September 9, 2012 you can plan on arriving anytime after 9:00am to enjoy a full day celebrating the Fiero at our Fierorama show. The car show hours are from 12 noon until 5:00pm at Pottawotmie Park. Please pre-register for this event; it is so much easier for all involved to plan activities if we have a good idea of attendance in advance.

All NIFE members and spectators can participate for FREE. Other non-NIFE members choosing to enter their car in the show are welcome with a registration fee of $10. Or for $25, become a NIFE member and receive our award winning Fiero Focus magazine for the balance of 2012 and all of 2013 and attend Fierorama for FREE. Feel free to participate in our Park 4 Fun class if you will not be able to stay with us the entire day. Displaying your Fiero in this class allows you the flexibility to come and go as you please. You do not need to enter your car in the show to participate! All are welcome.

Directions: St. Charles is located in the Fox Valley area about 35 miles west of Chicago. It is easily accessible via several local roadways including Route 64 (North Avenue), Route 25, or Route 31, all with easy connections from I-88, and I-90. Please see the map located on our website. Look for the Fierorama signs!

This is one of the best and largest Fiero shows of the year and always a fun and exciting time. We look forward to seeing you and having you join us for some great times and good fun in St. Charles! See you there!

Thanks to our generous Fierorama Key Sponsors for 2012: The Fiero Store, V8 Archie, Fox Valley Buick/GMC in St. Charles, IL and Village Buick/GMC in Naperville, IL. Because of their significant contributions, we can keep Fierorama a free event for our club members.

Plenty of shopping around St Charles, buy stuff when you get here, then box it up and mail it back home after the weekend

My first Fierorama! I originally thought i'd be going as a non-fiero owner, but i got lucky and bought my first Fiero a few weeks ago from PaulV so now i'm even more stoked about Fierorama! Just bought another Fiero the other day for a kid at work so he'll be tagging along as well (just gotta make him join NIFE). Can't wait. see u guys there!

What exactly is a "poker run?" I've heard them mentioned before but never really understood what they're all about.

One version is driving a specfic route and collect a card at each stop, usually seven stops. Come back and best poker hand wins. A way for a cruise in an area.

I had thought about coming this year to tie it in with a trip tp a Pontiac show in Warwick, RI, but that is nearly a two week interval from the end of Fierorama and the Warwick show. Too much time for me to kill.

Poker run
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A poker run is an organized event where participants, usually using motorcycles, snowmobiles, boats, or Fieros, must visit five to seven checkpoints, drawing a playing card at each one. The object is to have the best poker hand at the end of the run. The event has a time limit, however the participants are not timed—winning is purely a matter of chance.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the record for the largest event was set in 2009 with 2,136 motorcyclists benefiting the Fallen Firefighter Survivors Foundation (FFSF)

In addition to the Saturday events, Fierorama will feature a "Tech Table" from 1-3PM Sunday September 9th. Some of our most versed NIFE members will be on hand to answer questions about brakes, alignment, headlight motors and systems, steering column repairs, and wiper motor operations. (and more!)

Also, Rodney Dickman will be on hand with his vast array of Fiero parts and accessories. If you are coming and need some of Rodney's items, place your order and have him bring your order to the show. Save on shipping!

Hope you can make it!

Anyone worried about dust or a bumpy road due to construction might want to avoid North Avenue (IL 64) - there's about a five-mile stretch of it on the east side of St. Charles that's all torn up due to the long-planned widening. Its OK on weekends but weekday rush-hour traffic can be bad. But it could still be dusty.

The show is for the daily driven Fiero's as well. Does not have to be a perfect show car. We also have a project class for those who are still restoring a Fiero as well.

yeah i know, but she has the wrong front end on her at the moment which really messes with the body lines. (she's an 86 SE with the nose of an 87-88 coupe) It's my favorite Fiero fascia so I'll probably end up getting some tapered ground FX to help out the lines, but either way I really dont think she's ready even against other daily drivers. Too many other little things on her to deal with. A little more TLC and she'll be getting shown. Also this year i'm not sure if i'll be able to stay for the entire day or not. Bringing a friend of mine (who is also my mechanic) along to try to educate him on these wonderful cars a bit, and since we both have kids and wives we may end up having to leave early. This year i'm mostly going just to meet other club members and get some ideas on what to do to my car.

Pics? I really wish I could have gone. My family made the decision not to go as we have just moved into a new house and have painting to do. Instead I had the envious fun of painting my daughters room on Sat. Yes, I know that it is much more fun than a car show so please try to contain any jealousy! In all seriousness, I am sad that I didn't go but will be there next year. Paul V even had me all hooked up with the interior parts I need for my sons car!
