Flyer Fest West

Each year there is a "Fest" held in California. It is rotated among three clubs, namely the Golden Gate American Flyer Club, the Sacramento Valley American Flyer Club, and the Southern California S Gaugers. When it is held by the Golden Gate or Sacramento Valley club, the event is called the "Flyer Fest West"; when it is held by the Southern California S Gaugers, it is called the "S Fest West". The Flyer Fest West is a gathering of American Flyer and hi-rail enthusiasts. It is held for several days, and offers how-to clinics, contests, vendors, local layout tours, etc.

Even though the NASG is not directly involved with Flyer Fest West shows, we still wanted to have a page dedicated to this annual meeting. If you want to stay up on the latest related to Flyer Fest West shows, bookmark this page.
