The Amelia Island Concours d’ Elegance is now well established as the premier event of this sort for the Eastern part of North America. 

Mercedes-Benz was the first and continues as the most prominent sponsor with an awesome pavilion on the show field and a star studded gala at the Ritz Carlton on Saturday evening. 

If you have an invitation to the gala, this is your pass to the pavilion.  These places have been filled for some time. 

MBCA members gather for dinner Friday night and Saturday night as well as at the Saturday morning Cars and Coffee at the concours. If you don’t already have a car entry confirmed for this, forget it.   It has been filled for quite some time. 

MBCA will, however have a tent in the area of the Mercedes-Benz pavilion.  You are welcome to see the historic Mercedes-Benz display both Saturday and Sunday.  We would also welcome your help with recruiting new members among the visitors to the Mercedes-Benz area.  Just tell Enthusiast Committee Chair Josie Lesler or any of the MBCA board members you would like to help. 

National Director at Large, Jim Roberts and the Alabama/ N.W. Florida Section have arranged traditional Fri & Sat evening dinners for MBCA members and guests.

Friday, 6 March at 6:30pm We will be at the Jacksonville Airport Doubletree Hotel’s banquet facilities.  This will feature an extensive buffet. The hotel will collect from you at the door. 

Note: This replaces our traditional event in Kingsland, GA, as “The Millhouse” restaurant there has closed.  The Jacksonville Airport is about 25 min from Kingsland (i.e. the same time as it is to Amelia Island). 

Saturday, 7 March at 6pm we will be at the Crab Trap in historic Fernandina Beach.  This is also about 25 min from Kingsland or the Jacksonville airport. You will be able to order from the extensive menu. 

Each year these events have grown.  In order for the facilities to plan it is important that you let Jim know each of the nights you will be attending at [email protected].  These are all great events to see and visit with your MBCA friends from all over North America.
