Your Sponsorship is requested for the 1st Annual Gasparilla Concours d’Elegance.

Following the century-old Tampa tradition of Gasparilla excitement and celebration, and with decades of experience with Concours d'Elegance events, we are excited to present to you a first for Tampa,

The Gasparilla Concours d'Elegance. 

While other promoters may use the term "concours d'elegance" for their personal benefit when promoting their car show, a true Concours d’Elegance is very different then your average car show:

  • Participation is invitation only, guaranteeing the finest, most rare, unique classic cars and vintage motorcycles to be displayed and judged. Often Participants must commit to not showing their cars for months prior to the event to insure the uniqueness of the events special display.
  • Entrants are judged by accredited Judges certified by CCCA (Classic Car Club of America) and AACA (Antique Car Club of America).
  • Original condition is paramount when organizing a proper Concours d'Elegance show field.


Why should your business partner with the Gasparilla Concours d'Elegance...

The name "Gasparilla" says it all! Since 1904, Tampa has celebrated the legend of Jose Gaspar with the Mardi Gras styled festivities of Gasparilla. It attracts millions of visitors, and has become a premier event in the USA, spanning an entire social season.

  • Attracting a national audience of automobile collectors and enthusiasts from all over the country in attendance to the Tampa Bay area.
  • The event is hosted in the most picturesque venue, Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, nestled between the Tampa Museum of Art, Florida Museum of Photographic Arts and the Glazer Children’s Museum and against a backdrop of the University of Tampa minarets and the Hillsborough River.
