A little more about the Grand Invitational…

Lambda Car Club Int’l is the largest collector car club for gay and lesbian people in North America. Membership is at 2,200, and there are 32 active regions throughout the U.S. and Canada. The club’s annual gathering — The Grand Invitational — is held in a different city each year and is hosted by their respective chapter. In 2018, Music City will be hosting this event! It’s an exciting time for Nashville to host, since becoming the “It” city in recent years. Several hundred classic and collectible automobile enthusiasts and their cars from all over the country will converge on Nashville for an entire week visiting local businesses and attractions. The Grand Invitational is also open to our sister car club members in the Freewheelers and Great Autos clubs. This is an event you won’t want to miss!​
