Seems like if Somali gatherings are OK then we should be able to have an American gathering.

However the MSRA Back to the Fifties car show fits the bill for what you propose. In fact they don't even recommend staying at a hotel in Brooklyn Park/Center, a sound recommendation. Would you stay at a hotel in that area?

Classic car shows are pretty much all American. But I think you are forgetting the upcoming July 4th holiday. Picnics, races, trips to the shooting range, barbecue, etc. About as American as it gets.
