The 32nd Annual United Capital Corporation AutoFest and Street Festival, hosted by the Great Neck Plaza Business Improvement District (BID), will feature classic and special-edition vehicles, along with live entertainment and fun events for the whole family on Sunday, Oct. 16, from 12 to 5 p.m., with a rain date of Sunday, Oct. 23.
This year’s event will showcase classic BMW motorcycles and cars from the internationally acclaimed collection of Long Island’s own Peter Nettesheim, who is recognized as one of the world’s foremost classic BMW motorcycle experts, and is often called upon to consult with BMW Germany.
“We are thrilled to include Peter’s collection in our lineup for this year’s AutoFest,” said Jay Corn, Great Neck Plaza BID vice president and events committee chairperson. “Our show has always provided a unique, close-up look at these classic and special-edition cars for our festival visitors. This year, with the edition of several of Peter’s priceless BMW motorcycles, our festivalgoers will be treated to a truly special experience.”
The daylong AutoFest and Street Festival will offer live entertainment and activities. Performances will include the Meade Brothers, a favorite local band from Manhasset; Nina Et Cetera, a well-known singer of ’60s music; and Banjo Rascals, a popular group that performs music from all generations. Children will be happily entertained with rock-climbing walls, a petting zoo, carnival games and inflatable bouncers—along with performances by Katya’s School of Dance.
“Every year, we support the Great Neck Plaza BID’s AutoFest because it’s a unique way to give back to our community,” said Michael Lamoretti, president of United Capital Corporation, the festival’s name sponsor. “It’s great to see members of the Great Neck community and people from the entire metropolitan area come together to enjoy the day.”
