About Palooza 2020
Based on CDC recommendations, input from our local Porsche dealer, our own understanding and knowledge of science and virology, and a general desire to protect the health of all the friends of Palooza, it is our determination that cancellation of Porsche Palooza 2020 is the safest choice for everyone.
Palooza has been an annual highlight for all of us since 2005 and we are sincerely saddened by this decision, but the health and well-being of our family and friends is our priority. The host hotel, Best Western Inn of the Ozarks, is operating at a reduced capacity and will honor the Palooza room rates if anyone wishes to make the trip in November. Driving routes from Palooza 2019 are all available here.
We hope you are all doing well while staying safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. We look forward to seeing our Palooza friends again in 2021 – November 11-14th.
