Dear Sandhills Motoring Festival Supporter,

The health and safety of our supporters remains our highest priority, and we hope you, your family and friends are managing to stay safe and healthy as the worldwide battle with COVID-19 shows no sign of slowing.

Based on information gathered, the Sandhills Motoring Festival has been rescheduled for Labor Day Weekend, September 4-6. The venues and run time for the event remain the same – only the date has changed. We thank the Village of Pinehurst, as well as all our sponsors, for their dedication to the success of our event. It simply would not be possible without them.

In the coming weeks, we will be in touch with each entrant, sponsor and venue insuring we are all on the same page. The Sandhills Motoring Festival website – – will continue to be the best resource for updates and information. Also, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at 910-315-2918 with any questions you may have leading up to the event on September 4-6.

We feel the appetite for getting outside and enjoying the automobile will be stronger than ever when we emerge from this crisis. Until then, please be well and stay safe.

When the popular Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance ended in 2017 after a five-year run, several car enthusiasts felt something was needed to fill that void.

In 2018, Porsche Club of America member, Marvin Waters, and Mercedes Benz Club of America members, Steve Redwine and Bill Faison stepped in to create the Sandhills Motoring Festival, a 3-day event held over Memorial Day Weekend.

Activities culminate on Sunday, May 26, with the “Concours in the Village” and Awards Dinner.

This year, the Village Council unanimously voted to become a title sponsor, allowing the event to utilize Tufts Park and the streets surrounding the village green.  Read about the decision in The Pilot, the local news source:

“We are excited to see the Sandhills Motoring Festival come to the village of Pinehurst over Memorial Day weekend,” said Mayor Nancy Fiorillo. “The village will provide a wonderful backdrop for the showing of the finest automobile club vehicles in the Carolinas and the surrounding regions. This a perfect opportunity to showcase our community.”

As was the case with the Concours, the Sandhills Motoring Festival donates all of its proceeds to the Sandhills Community College Foundation to fund scholarships for students in automotive technologies program. Last year, the festival donated $5,000, Waters told the council.
