The third annual St. Michaels Concours d’Elegance will be held Sunday, September 27, 2009 on the waterside lawn of the Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels, Maryland.
“This year’s Concours promises to be the best yet,” stated George M. Walish, Jr., Chairman and Founder of the event. “This year’s event will once again showcase 50 of the most rare and award winning examples of rolling sculpture from the Golden Age of Motoring, 1900-1942, along with a fashion show and art exhibit.” A variety of horse-drawn carriages and wooden speedboats from the same era will accompany the automobiles on display.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars will once again be the presenting sponsor, and will exhibit new and vintage classic Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
This year’s event will feature two themes. As a demonstration of support for the American automobile industry, the event will feature pre-war Chrysler Imperial automobiles. The Chrysler Imperials of 1931-1933 represent the most significant Chryslers built during the pre-World War II period, with coachwork by Carrossiers, LeBaron, Derham, Locke, Murphy and Waterhouse. These cars represent the best of 1930’s American automotive design. The 2009 Concours d’ Elegance will also feature French coach built automobiles.
St. Michaels Concours d’Elegance will benefit the American Red Cross of the Delmarva Peninsula, which serves more than 1 million people throughout nine counties in Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore. General admission tickets are $50 and VIP tickets, which include lunch at the Inn at Perry Cabin, are $100. All proceeds benefit the American Red Cross of the Delmarva Peninsula.
