I didnt see a thread in here about it, but BAM has been announced for this year.
Its going to be at the San Jose Giants stadium like last year.
Cool event, here is the FB event.
Here is the description from there:
BAM is by far the best Subaru specific show if you want to feel welcomed. It's a grassroots event run by the Subaru community for the Subaru community. It's fun for the whole family, so bring the kids. It's a charity event with a huge raffle full of donated items, from your favorite local speed shops to the big brand name parts suppliers. And every raffle ticket sold funds the charity, not the pockets of the organizers. It's a little friendly competition in the car show. I dare another major Subaru specific car show to raise as much for charity as we do, while having half as much fun. Other shows are run for profit and you can feel that when you go... BAM is all about community.

On site food vendors will be open, so eat whenever you're ready.
Raffle times will depend on how many prizes we can get but the last raffle will be just before the event ends and will contain some of the larger items.
The event technically ends at 3pm. You're welcome to stay later if you choose but the event will start shutting down and cleaning up.

Jacob’s Heart Foundation. They do great work and we're very happy to partner with them once again. Since the current crew took over BAM we have made the charity a major focus. We've increased our donation every year to date and we're really hoping to do that again this year. 4 years ago it was $7,000. 3 years ago, $9,700. 2 years go, $12,500, last year we hit an amazing $18k! Let's break $20k this year!
