Philadelphia’s premier Concours event is gearing up for this year’s Father’s Day weekend. The feature marque this year will be Bentley, as the 2019 Philadelphia Concours d’Elegance celebrates the 100th anniversary of Bentley Motors.
On Saturday, June 15, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., nonprofit Cool Cars for Kids, Inc. (CCfK) presents the third annual Philadelphia Concours d’Elegance at the world-class Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum. A Preview Gala will be held the night before, on Friday, June 14, from 6:30 to 10 p.m. The two-day event benefits the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) in providing help and hope to children with rare genetic diagnoses and their families, and to support research that will identify the best possible treatments.
The 2019 Philadelphia Concours d’Elegance will showcase an invitation-only assembly of 30-plus American and European classic and historic automobiles and race cars. The day-long, fundraising event includes professional judging and awards presented for historical accuracy, technical merit, and style. This year’s classes are: Bentley, Open Cars, Closed Cars, Prewar Cars, Postwar Cars, Sports Cars, and Muscle Cars.
The day will also include family-friendly activities; celebrity guests, among whom will be Honorary Chair, Super Bowl-winning Coach Dick Vermeil; a Car Corral open for local car enthusiasts to exhibit their classic cars; food and specialty vendors; and access to the Simeone Museum – one of the world’s greatest collections of racing sports cars. Public admission, $25; FREE for students and children under 18
