AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. – The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance is still happening in 2021, but it’s moving closer to summertime.

Instead of being held in March, the annual car show that attracts people from around the world is moving to May 20-23.

A statement from the Amelia Island Concours reads in part:

“At the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance Foundation made a promise to put the safety of our spectators, volunteers, entrants, judges, vendors, sponsors, staff and board of directors first. Every day since, our team has consulted experts, followed local and national developments and weighed our options. We worked tirelessly to create a plan that would allow us to move forward. We also set benchmarks that would require us to pause.”

The Concours says moving the date will allow more time for the distribution of coronavirus vaccines, and it hopes that moving the date will increase attendance.

Tickets and event packages purchased directly from the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance Foundation will automatically be carried forward to the corresponding events during the week of May 20-23.
