About this event
The BMW 3 Series, E46 chassis, is an iconic car. It is beloved throughout the world and is universally adored much like the E30 chassis. The Pacific Northwest is especially passionate for E46's in all the chassis variations. This E46 Picnic as we are calling it, is modeled after the hugely successful E30 Picnic. That event started from humble beginnings as a picnic and the name has continued. So the E46 is getting a "Picnic," and just like the event it's modeled after, the E46 Picnic is just for E46's to honor the cars and fanatics who care for them. We want to invite everyone with an E46, no matter the condition, to come to our "Picnic" at Golden Valley Brewery. This is all about the celebration of the E46! If you don't have an E46 please come as a free spectator.
The BMW E46 was the 4th generation of the 3 Series and they were produced from 1999-2005. The convertibles lasted one year longer to 2006. The BMW E46 chassis was very diverse, offering 2-door, 4-door, Touring and Cabriolet models. The sporty M3 was available in coupe and convertible models. A compact model was even offered in Europe. We invite all E46 models and versions at the very first E46 Picnic!
