Tampa’s Gasparilla Concours d’Elegance weekend of events has been rescheduled due to the outbreak of the coronavirus COVID-19. Originally planned for April 17-19, the event will now be November 6-8 at a new venue: Peter O. Knight Airport, a general aviation facility on the waterfront, just five minutes from downtown Tampa.
Below is the official announcement issued by the Gasparilla Concours organizing committee:
Over the past few weeks, we have been closely monitoring and evaluating the situation around COVID-19 to ensure we are taking the necessary measures to protect the health and well-being of Gasparilla Concours attendees. As a result, we have made the difficult but important decision to reschedule the 2020 Gasparilla Concours d’Elegance to November 6-8, 2020.
While we are disappointed that we will not see you in April, we are excited to see you in the Fall. These next months allow us the opportunity to hopefully resolve the impact of the coronavirus and get back to enjoying our activities together. We have chosen a more expansive outdoor venue that is perfect for our growth in the years to come.We have chosen a more expansive outdoor venue that is perfect for our growth in the years to come, the Peter O. Knight Airport, on Davis Islands.
The new venue allows us to increase our VIP Tent area, add more displays, and even include vintage planes and boats. And it is just 5 minutes from downtown Tampa, so your hotel reservations only need a change of date. We will continue the bus shuttles to/from the hotels, as well as offer golf cart service from the parking areas. The truck/trailer parking will be right on property as well, so no need to worry about transportation or parking.
We know you will fall in love with the 2020 Gasparilla Concours d’Elegance at the Peter O. Knight Airport, on Davis Islands, one of the most prestigious waterfront areas in Tampa. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions. Be well and see you soon!
