Those of us in the Northeast frontier have a new show on our radar in Southern Québec. Having been largest Eurokracy to date, this year’s will undoubtedly reign as one of the top East Coast shows of the year.
Enthusiasts not only in Montréal, but nearby communities—Canadian and American—lent to this year’s massive growth. As the name implies, this show is evolving from a love for all things European.
Don’t let the Euro influence fool you, though. Non-Euros occupied various nooks and crannies, populated the many activities, and diversified the show’s judging categories. Amongst these activities, you’ll find your classic limbo competition. This year they took the idea even further, incorporating the limbo into an obstacle course called: “The Neckbreaker.” Challenging to anything remotely close to the asphalt, this competition gave the crowds a new way to see how insanely low some of these cars actually are.
Only in its third year of operation, Eurokracy has managed to outgrow each prior venue. Responsible for the shows great success is the formula that fuels it. The individuals in charge are not only some of the nicest fellas I know, but their networking know-how effectively gets word out and hype built. Pair up the successful marketing campaign with indifferent events and you see it start to come together. Their dedication and the willingness of so many fellow enthusiasts to travel from various states and territories is what makes, and will continue to make Eurokracy a damn good time.
