The Atlanta Concours d’Elegance</br>October 19-20, 2019

About the Atlanta Concours d'Elegance

Over five years ago, lifelong friends and business associates, Bill Wallet and Harry Krix shared a dream of producing a major classic automobile show for the Atlanta community. With a mutual passion for classic cars, Bill and Harry set out to create a unique, high-end classic automobile exposition that dazzles the senses and surpasses expectations. In 2016, they launched their first Atlanta Concours d’Elegance, living up to the high standards set by concourses throughout the world, establishing Atlanta as a true Concours.

Announcing Our new Venue for 2019!
Tyler Perry Studios

The Atlanta Concours d’Elegance blazes a new trail in 2019 as it relocates to Tyler Perry Studios in downtown Atlanta—growing its significant weekend of events to include the first annual Caffeine and Octane Invitational and highlighting Bentley as the featured marque in honor of the brand’s 100th anniversary. The 2019 show, set for October 19th and 20th, blends the historic atmosphere of our new location with the vibrant City of Atlanta, all while showcasing vintage and modern-day vehicles from some of the rarest collections to be found nationwide. Additionally, the Metropolitan Chapters of 100 Black Men are adding their support to this year’s event. The Atlanta Concours d’Elegance looks forward to partnering with such an important organization and the positive impact their participation will have on this event.

Tyler Perry Studios Aerial

“The move to Tyler Perry Studios provides an absolutely unique, history-rich environment that is conveniently located—while placing the entrant vehicles in a setting reflecting the time period during the earliest years of automotive production.”

The Tyler Perry Studios location builds upon the heritage aspect of the respected Concours and instills a true ‘personality’ for the show. Several traditions will remain including the annual Magnificent Seven Competition, which debuted in 2017 and for 2019 will be the highlight of the first annual Caffeine and Octane Invitational

Bentley

Bentley will be the featured marque, celebrating the brand’s 100th anniversary, with displays from vintage years to modern day

Reunion of the Thomas's

A ‘Reunion of the Thomas’s’ will feature a unique ‘Brass Era’ collection of vehicles from 1900-1919, including the famous ‘Thomas Flyer,’ which had won the 1908 New York to Paris Race – viewed as history’s first and only around-the-world automobile race

First Annual Caffeine and Octane Invitational

The Saturday, October 19th invitational event will feature up to 200 cars selected by the producers of the popular NBC Sports Network ‘Caffeine and Octane’ show to be displayed and filmed on the parade field with only seven stand- outs to be chosen and shown again to the public in Sunday’s official Concours as they compete within their own unique ‘Magnificent Seven’ class. The program, the first of its kind, is an innovative way to bridge two distinct sections of the greater car world and helps foster interest across genres and generations.
