“People really enjoyed seeing these classic cars on the museum’s waterfront campus last year,” commented Concours Chairman David North. “So we’re delighted to have the museum host the event again, and to support their worthwhile mission of sharing the way people live, work and play on the Bay.”

The St. Michaels Concours d’Elegance is a celebration of automotive style and excellence featuring Grand Classic automobiles (1900-1942) along with vintage motor boats, art, fashion, and enjoyment. New to this year’s event is an automobile class featuring post-World War II sports and racing cars through 1960.

The Concours includes several participant-only events beginning on Friday, September, 23, with a golf tournament at Harbourtowne Golf Resort and Conference Center in St. Michaels. Saturday, September 24 features a tour of automobiles from St. Michaels to the Robert Morris Inn in Oxford, followed by a gala fundraising dinner at the Harbourtowne Golf Resort and Conference Center.

On Sunday, September 25, the main event comes to the museum and is open to the public, with the display and judging of participating automobiles and an accompanying fashion show. Food and beverages throughout the day will be provided by St. Michaels Harbour Inn’s Harbour Lights Restaurant, a lead sponsor of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.

Museum admission for Sunday’s event, which takes place from 10am to 4pm on September 25, is $30 for CBMM members and $35 for non-members, with all proceeds benefiting the historic boat restoration and educational programs of the museum.
