Imagine a festival that celebrates anything and everything Mazda Miata. No, we’re not talking about your local autocross, we’re talking about the annual Miata Reunion.

Set for October 20-22 at Sonoma Raceway, the 2023 Miata Reunion will be celebrating 25 years of the NB-chassis Mazda Miata.

The event promises something for pretty much every Miata enthusiast, including the chance to drive your Miata for a parade lap around Sonoma Raceway, test your driving skills in the Flyin' Miata Autocross Challenge, participate in the Moss Miata Car Show and much more.

Tickets start at $25 for general admission for the whole weekend.

Just checked the build date on the NB in my garage: 4/98. It's mildly upsetting to realize my "newer" Miata is technically a classic.

There is no way than an NB can be that old.

Sure is hard to believe.  

I have one year left to get my car back on the road before it turns 25.  (but we bought our Alfa when it was just 23, and very much a classic)

My NB also has an 04/98 build date, and has been to all of the previous west coast events (which were just called Miatas@Laguna Seca).  It's retired from track duty at this point, though.
