Make a fun day an elegant day!

  The Concours is an outdoor event that takes place at the beautiful Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park in downtown Tampa, Florida. Attire should be comfortable, cool and convenient for walking. Many people opt for resort casual clothing or even period clothing to match the car they have in the display or the era they wish they were a part of. Either way you dress, we encourage a polished appearance, paired with the perfect hat!  Make it fun!

Every year one of the most fun part of the Schedule of Events is the Vintage Fashion Show. All are invited to participate. It is free and fun and there will be prizes!

Please contact us in advance so we can be sure not to miss you. Our panel of judges will walk the field to asses the period clothing you, your spouse, and even your pet, have worn to join in on the fun.

 If you have a car on display, extra points for matching the period correctness of you with your car.
