This event celebrates “100 Years of Automotive Excellence” annually with a new centennial automobile as its featured vehicle. The original, 2019, marquee was President Woodrow Wilson’s 1919 Pierce Arrow limousine on loan from the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum in Staunton, Virginia, his birthplace.
Patterned after Pebble Beach and Amelia Island, this Concours will offer a multi-day schedule of events with exquisite classic vehicles worth millions of dollars (both cars and motorcycles). This is the only true Concours d’Elegance for Tampa, and for those unfamiliar with Concours d’Elegances, they differ from a regular car show, as it is an invitation-only event. This is where extraordinary vehicles, many never seen in public, are invited to take part and be judged for prestigious awards in the automotive community.
The festivities kick off Friday night. The ceremony will host a “Cars-in-the-Park” Cocktail Party & Charity Auction. This will be a family-friendly, fun night where exquisite cars, hot rods, retromods, exotics, the latest and greatest from dealerships, all will be on display. It will also offer food, live music, and a live and silent charity auction.
On Saturday, the Concours d’Elegance, will take place with exciting and beautiful automobiles and motorcycles on display and judged. Food and live music will be on scene to provide meals, refreshments, and entertainment. An elaborate Red-Carpet Awards Ceremony will complete the day.
On Sunday, the weekend will wrap up with a 3-hour Nickel Tour of Historic Tampa touring along the beautiful Tampa neighborhoods ending with lunch.
The Gasparilla Concours d’Elegance is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with proceeds going to charity. This year’s benefactor will be the Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA).
