​Why should you 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. Tampa is a nationally known growth city, with all the culture and history that comes with it's well deserved reputation of charm and elegance.

The Gasparilla Concours d'Elegance will be atracting a national audience of automobile collectors and enthusiasts from all over the country in attendance to the Tampa Bay area. These collectors have a real appreciation for a wide variety of finer things in life.

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.
