Caffeine and Octane At The Beach
Posted: Aug 01 2016
Atlanta’s largest & most unique monthly car show, Caffeine and Octane, is hitting the road! Jekyll Island, one of Georgia’s “Golden Isles”, will host the inaugural Caffeine and Octane At The Beach March 17-19, 2017. This will be a unique three day event chock full of all things mechanized and cool, just as people have come to expect from Caffeine and Octane. Founders Bruce Piefke and Bryan Fuller will be ratcheting things up a notch with a full schedule of activities for gearheads and their families.
Get revved up starting Friday morning with a community breakfast and family bicycle ride (bikes available for rent or bring your own), then go polish up your skills with workshops hosted by some of the top talent in the automotive industry. Workshops include: TIG Welding with Mark Prosser, Modern Supercar Engineering with Kevin Byrd, Techniques in Design, Automotive Tuning and more! Finish up Friday by celebrating St. Patrick’s day with us at Jekyll Island’s brand new Beachside Village.
Hit the ground running on Saturday with a classic car parade and all day car show! The excitement builds as top custom motorcycle builders from around the country compete in The Forged Invitational. Held inside the Jekyll Island Convention Center rows of hand crafted motorcycles will be on display as Jekyll’s Great Dunes Park beach provides an amazing backdrop. Only the most creative and skilled builders will qualify for this unique high end motorcycle exhibition. Of course there will still be plenty of time to polish up your skills as the workshops continue. Kids can also get hands-on and learn building & customization skills with build events geared specifically for kids. Wrap up the day with southern-style Shrimp and Grits at the prestigious Jekyll Island Club followed by a free movie on the lawn. Night owls won’t want to miss the special after party starting at 10:00 pm.
