Dacia is inviting owners from across the United Kingdom to the fourth annual Dacia Day, taking place on 13th August at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome, Leicestershire. The free event, exclusively for Dacia owners will offer opportunities to meet with other passionate Dacia owners and a fun day out for the whole family.
Organised in conjunction with the Dacia Forum, an independent website for Dacia owners in the UK, attendees can enjoy an active family day out by trying their skills at archery and falconry, experience Rugby League up close with an opportunity to take a look around the new Duster Rugby League special editions, test drive each Dacia model – including the Duster on a dedicated 4x4 off-road course, and tickle their taste buds at a cake emporium for those with a sweet tooth. There will also be a bouncy castle area for the younger members of the family. The fun day out for all of the family also includes a tour around the Aerodrome’s amazing selection of historic aircraft.
Louise O’Sullivan, Head of Dacia UK, said: “Dacia Day promises to be a fun-filled free event with something for everyone. We love to see all of our customers enjoying themselves and many look forward to sharing experiences with other Dacia owners. A strong sense of community is one of the reasons why owners rate Dacia so highly so we’re really pleased to be involved with this fourth annual Dacia Day. We encourage everyone to bring a picnic with them and to make the most of the day!”
Dacia Day follows on from the popular and long-running ‘Dacia Picnic’ events across Europe, where Dacia owners meet for an enjoyable family day out with activities, socialising and picnics. The first Dacia Picnic was held in France in 2008 and they encourage customers and their families to enjoy a day full of events such as volleyball, football, sailing, photo booths and workshops. Dacia organises these events across the world to thank its enthusiastic customers and ever-growing community.
