WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — (January 26, 2021): Thanks to a generous financial gift from Hagerty to cover the cost of admission, patrons will have the opportunity to attend the featured Concours at The Greenbrier Concours d’Elegance free of charge on Sunday, May 2, 2021.
“We were fortunate to offer complimentary tickets for the first time last year, and a large number of new attendees were able to come out and enjoy The Greenbrier and see these incredible automobiles,” said Cam Huffman, a member of the Steering Committee for The Greenbrier Concours d’Elegance. “We are extremely grateful that Hagerty has stepped up to make this possible once again, and we look forward to welcoming new attendees, as well as old friends.”
Registration is required for the complimentary tickets and can be completed online at GreenbrierConcours.com/freetickets. Registered guests will need only display proper identification at the entrance to gain admission. All COVID-19 guidelines will be strictly followed, including mandatory masks and distancing.
“We will allow registration at the entrance on the day of the event, but to avoid any wait, patrons should register now,” said Huffman. “Registration will be cut off to ensure proper capacity under COVID guidelines. We will have a strict COVID plan in place to keep everyone safe, just as we did for the 2020 event last September, which was a great success.”
Now in its fourth year, The Greenbrier Concours d’Elegance has grown to become one of the most anticipated and talked-about automobile events on the East Coast. The annual showcase is a celebration of the automobile and its rich tradition at The Greenbrier.
This year’s event will begin on Friday, April 30, with the Summit Drive, which allows car enthusiasts the opportunity to experience the incredible mountain roads of the two Virginias with a spirited drive to the Virginia Museum of Transportation in Roanoke, Va. Drivers will enjoy a brunch at the exclusive Summit Lodge at The Greenbrier Sporting Club before hitting the road. Upon arrival in Roanoke, drivers will tour the museum, before returning to The Greenbrier via a different route.
That same evening, car owners, judges and car enthusiasts will gather at Kate’s Mountain Lodge for the official Welcome Reception.
The schedule for Saturday, May 1, features Cars and Cocktails, a show giving car owners of all types an opportunity to gather on The Greenbrier’s famed golf courses and enjoy beautiful cars, fine spirits and fellowship. The cost to enter a car is $25, and admission is free to anybody who wants to come see these incredible automobiles.
Later that evening, the Charitable Dinner will feature cuisine from the world-renowned chefs at America’s Resort, as well as an opportunity to raise funds for The Greenbrier Concours d’Elegance featured charities — the AACA Library and Research Center, the Mountaineer Autism Project and the First Responders Children’s Foundation.
The featured event, the concours, takes place on Sunday, May 2, when close to 100 collector cars and motorcycles from around the world gather in and around The Greenbrier’s iconic front circle. These cars are judged by a carefully selected panel of automotive experts, with awards handed out at the conclusion of the show.
“The buzz on Sunday’s is always amazing, and we want to share it with as many people as possible under the COVID guidelines,” said Huffman. “The cars that are on display are always unique, and we’re incredibly excited about this year’s featured class of Television and Movie Cars.”
Registration is still open for qualified cars for Sunday's concours. To register your car, visit GreenbrierConcours.com/concoursregistration.
