The Radnor Hunt Concours d’Elegance encompasses three days of activities beginning with the Friday evening Barbecue at Radnor Hunt, followed by the always popular Road Rally through the scenic countryside of Chester County on Saturday morning, culminating in a catered lunch. The Saturday evening Black Tie Gala, Silent Auction and Art Show Preview is the prelude to the main event, the concours d’elegance on Sunday.
Each year, the concours event, an invitation-only show, has a featured marque, a vehicle type or coachbuilder and a motorcycle make. The 2017 event will showcase the most interesting and significant from the featured classes plus a selection of rare and unusual vehicles and motorcycles to complete the show field. This year, the Vintage Tractors class promises to be a first ever departure for the Radnor Hunt Concours d’Elegance.
The event also includes Motorsport Park, providing local marque car clubs the opportunity to gather in an exclusive parking area close to the show field entrance on Sunday, as well as a Cars & Coffee gathering on Saturday concurrent with the road rally. The Marketplace area features a variety of both automotive and non-automotive merchants, and offering specialized shopping for concours attendees.
Advance discount tickets for all activities are available online at www.radnorconcours.org and include the popular VIP Luncheon and the elite Chairman’s VIP reserved seating area overlooking the show field.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Thorncroft Equestrian Center in Malvern, Pennsylvania.
