The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance has taken steps to counter the Covid-19 pandemic. Originally slated for a March date, the show has been pushed back further into the spring season for safety concerns.
The 26th Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance will now take place May 20-23, 2001.
The Amelia Concours d’Elegance released the following statement:
Jacksonville, FL - In light of the current developments both locally and around the globe, the 26th Annual Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance will move to May 20-23, 2001.
At the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance Foundation made a promise to put the safety of our spectators, volunteers, entrants, judges, vendors, sponsors, staff and board directors first. Every day since, our team has consulted experts, followed local and national developments and weighed our options. We worked tirelessly to create a plan that would allow us to move forward. We also set benchmarks that would require us to pause.
Moving the date allows more time for the vaccine to be distributed. Additionally, hosting the concours in May will likely increase attendance and the corporate partnerships that allow out 501(c)(3) charitable foundation to continue its mission of providing resources for those in need on Florida’s First Coast and beyond.
We know the date change will present challenges for some. But we believe the health and well-being of those involved outweighs the inconvenience. Tickets and event packages purchased directly from The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance Foundation will automatically be worried forward tot he corresponding events during the week of May 20-23, 2021. Current vendor and sponsor agreements will also be honored for the new dates.
Thanks for your faithful support of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance Foundation.
- Founder and chairman, Bill Warner, and the Team of The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance.
