COVID-19 causes Greenbrier Conccours to reschedule
Greenbrier Concours d’Elegance moves to September 4-6 for 2020 to 3/19/2020
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — (March 19, 2020): Out of an abundance of caution and in cooperation with the guidelines from the CDC and other local and national health and government agencies, The 2020 Greenbrier Concours d’Elegance, originally scheduled for May 1-3 at The Greenbrier, is rescheduled for September 4-6.
“With all that is happening across our nation, it was clear that it wouldn’t be prudent to hold The Greenbrier Concours d’Elegance on its original date,” said Cam Huffman, a member of the event’s Steering Committee. “We felt it was important not to cancel, but instead to reschedule for a later date, and we’re excited about welcoming car enthusiasts from across the country to America’s Resort on Labor Day Weekend.”
All tickets and event registrations made for May will be automatically transferred to the new dates. Those who are unable to attend are asked to contact The Greenbrier Concours Concierge Alyssa Hill at email@example.com or 304-661-1245.
The celebration will begin on Friday, September 4, with the Summit Drive, which allows car enthusiasts the opportunity to experience West Virginia’s incredible mountain roads with a spirited drive to Cass Scenic Railroad State Park. Drivers will enjoy a brunch at the exclusive Summit Lodge at The Greenbrier Sporting Club before hitting the road. Upon arrival at Cass, drivers will take a ride up the mountain in a vintage steam engine, then return 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, September 5, features Cars & Cocktails by Smooth Ambler Spirits, 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 from Smooth Ambler and fellowship. The cost to enter a car is $25, and admission is free to anybody who wants to come view these incredible automobiles.
Later that evening, the Charitable Dinner will feature cuisine from the world-renowned chefs at America’s Resort, as well as entertainment and an opportunity to raise funds for The Greenbrier Concours d’Elegance featured charities — the AACA Library and Research Center and the Mountaineer Autism Project. At a reception prior to the dinner, ticket holders will have the opportunity to watch the Kentucky Derby on giant screens, while sipping mint juleps and mingling with other car enthusiasts.
The featured event, the concours, takes place on Sunday, September 6, when more than 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 end of the day.
Thanks to generous financial gifts to cover the cost of admission by two proud sponsors — Greenbrier Automotive Group and Hagerty — patrons will have the opportunity to attend the featured Concours free of charge. Registration is required for the complimentary tickets and can be completed online at GreenbrierConcours.com. Registered guests will need only display proper identification at the entrance to gain admission.
