GarterBelts & Gasoline 2014 will move to the first weekend in October to align with the Labour Day long weekend, so as to not make the die hard punters suffer withdrawal symptoms from having to wait some 18 months between the 2013 and 2014 festival, there  will be a GarterBelts & Gasoline 2013 1/2 on the first weekend of October next year, this will be a mini version of the festival with just one night of music, a second soap box derby race for the year and a rod and custom gathering to satisfy the hunger and this will then lead into the 12 months until the festival returns in 2014.

For the Soap Box Derby Racers, this will be big news as they will get to race twice next year !
