Signature Annual Event
The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, celebrating its 25th Silver Anniversary, is happening March 5-8, 2020. But before then, tune into “Winning Amelia,” an hour long feature about the Amelia Concours, to be broadcast nationally on NBC Sports Network January 28, 2020. The “Winning Amelia,” TV program (watch video trailer further below), will feature footage from past shows plus provide a preview of this year’s 2020 Silver Anniversary show.
Also read more below about two popular, FREE Concours events happening in March 2020. One is “Cars & Coffee At The Concours,” at The Golf Club of Amelia. The other free event is happening in downtown Fernandina Beach, when a selection of Concours d’Elegance cars will be on display along Centre Street.
The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance is held at the Ritz-Carlton and The Golf Club of Amelia Island in March each year. The big event, the “Field of Dreams,” is Sunday, March 8, 2020 (9:30 am to 4:30 pm). It’s the centerpiece event when 300 or so rare collector vehicles — some of the finest in the world — will be on display along the 10th and 18th fairways.
The Amelia Concours delivers the wow factor every year on this northeast Florida barrier island. It’s a mix of glamour, history, intrigue, and aesthetic stimulation everywhere you look. Many who travel to Amelia Island for this annual March event share a common love of automotive history. But you don’t have to be a car buff to enjoy this show.
Shaping Automotive History
The television program to be broadcast on January 28, 2020 isn’t just about winning awards. It’s about the “winning drivers, winning designers, and winning stories,” that have helped shape automotive history.
“Winning Amelia,” NBC Sports Network
NBC Sports Network (NBCSN) will broadcast “Winning Amelia” (presented by Hagerty), on Tuesday, January 28, 2020 at 9 PM EST (with a replay at midnight EST). Watch the video trailer below.
