Event Information

The Audi Club Carolinas is excited to be hosting the 37th annual AUDI CLUB NATIONALS event at Fontana Village Resort & Marina located near Pisgah National Forest and infamous “Tail of the Dragon”. We invite you to come experience all this area has to offer from great mountain roads, outdoor activities, Moonshine History, local Museums and great local towns and nearby Asheville NC.

Not only will attendees have opportunity to enjoy our roads but you can also customize your experience by registering to join an activity group and participate in activities such as Zip-Lining, Hiking, Local Historical Spot Tours, Wineries/Breweries, Museums and other family-oriented outdoor activities.

Attendees will join fellow Audi lovers for banquet style dinners on Friday and Saturday Evening, as well as a Sunday Brunch offering at Fontana Village Resort & Marina. We invite all guests to embrace the local moonshine history and join us for a “Roaring 20’s” themed Friday evening at the resort; participation is encouraged (but not required) so show up and show off!  


September is a great time of year to visit this area as temperatures are cooler in earlier hours and warm up midday. This weekend is before the peak leaf color change, which will help keep traffic down for more open roads.  Here in the Carolinas we strive to host inclusive and family friendly events. We  hope you take this opportunity to join in on the curvy roads with amazing mountain views, along with a great weekend full of socializing and adventuring with other Audi Club members!

Who We Are.

The original social network for Audi enthusiasts.

Audi Club North America

When he wasn’t doing things like riding his motorcycle to South America or water-skiing the length of the Mississippi River, Audi enthusiast Frank Beddor was importing no less than five Audi Sport quattro models from Germany, then founding Audi Club North America.

With over ten thousand members spread out across the United States and Canada, Audi Club North America is the largest club for Audi owners and enthusiasts in the world. The organization holds 500 events across 33 states and provinces annually, where chapters and dealerships host tech sessions, social events, race viewing events, driver education events and rallies. Audi Club North America members enjoy a wealth of opportunities in their exploration of the Audi ownership experience – from technology and performance to lifestyle and community.

Audi Club Carolinas

The Carolinas Chapter of ACNA was chartered in 2015 and began with over 250 members in North and South Carolina. We have local events where there is a large concentration of members in and around Asheville, Charlotte, Winston Salem and Raleigh, NC as well as Greenville and Charleston-Hilton Head, SC.


Audi Club Carolinas’ goal is to educate Audi owners about their cars and enhance their enjoyment of the Audi lifestyle through social and driving events. Stop by and take in some of our famous southern hospitality.
