Although we’re still a few months away, MINI has announced the date for its MINI united festival. It’s going to be from May 11-13 next year. In Lakeland, used MINI owners have been eagerly awaiting news of its official date, especially after it was listed (but soon removed) on a French racetrack’s online calendar of events.

So, what are MINI fans so excited about? MINI United is an open-air festival that’s a must-see for MINI fans and music lovers alike. At the Circuit Paul Ricard in France, more than 25,000 MINI fans will gather to enjoy live music, motor sport, and MINI community activities.

For MINI Countryman dealers in America, the festival is a big deal, but it seems a little out of reach. However, MINI has promised something special for any US owners that take the trip across the pond.

The MINI United is all about bringing together the automaker’s fans for a fun, action-packed weekend. There’s really something for everyone, even younger MINI drivers. The automaker has outlined an entire entertainment package including various restaurants, bars and catering stations.

If you’re lucky enough to find yourself overseas, the MINI United is a something you can’t afford to miss.
