Michelin Tower at Night
Time to stir up that imagination for a cool costume, or maybe to dust off that crazy getup you wore a few years ago. Join us for an evening of food and fun mingling with all your Miata friends in the Michelin Tower.
Seating will be in the ground floor Podium Club and up on the Rooftop and includes a buffet dinner (see full menu). There will be cash bars in both locations.
In addition to our special guest speaker we’ll be announcing Car Show award winners. (People enjoying the evening on the Rooftop will still be able to watch and hear everything via closed circuit TV).   6pm to 9pm Saturday Cost: $50pp
Space limited to the first 500 people.


  • We’re fortunate to once again have with us one of our favorite people – Tom Matano! Not only is he the original Chief Designer of the Miata, he’s a heck of a nice guy. There’s a bit of a tradition here, as Tom has joined us for literally every Miata Reunion event we’ve ever held – so it just wouldn’t be a Reunion without him. He’ll be stepping to the mic to say a few words Saturday evening at the party.
