Join us for the September 2020 Klingberg Vintage Motorcar Event and Pre-war Concours!
Featuring Grand Marshal Wayne Carini
We have considered all COVID-related recommendations and have created a very safe, yet fun event for antique car owners and spectators alike.
Just as in past years, all antique cars (1989 and earlier) will arrive early and be guided into display areas throughout the campus, with Pre-war Concours automobiles gathered into one area. We will be arranging all show cars with extra space between them for safety and so they can be appreciated by the spectators driving through.
Spectators will drive their own cars, not walk, along a special spectator car travel lane winding through every field and parking lot of show cars, so no car will be missed. Spectators can enjoy the approximately 20-minute drive, an adventure in automotive history, and the beautiful autumn vistas from the hilltop. (For the safety of all, there will be no spectators walking or exiting their cars.)
All sponsors will be recognized with signs along the spectator route, so all in attendance can see their generosity. Naturally, there will be larger signs for high-level sponsors as well as special displays along the route for all spectators to see. Platinum, Gold, and Palladium sponsors can register to ride through the Motorcar Event in an antique convertible or open automobile.
This year we are waiving the entrance fees for car owners and spectators to avoid the exchange of credit cards and cash. However, there will be opportunity and encouragement to make a donation. All proceeds will go directly to fund Klingberg programs serving families dealing with trauma, especially families that have been hit hard during this difficult time.
All proceeds benefit Klingberg Family Centers, a private nonprofit providing help to thousands of children and families throughout Connecticut each year whose lives have been traumatized by abuse and/or neglect in its various forms and severe family problems.
For All Antique Car Owners
All of the Klingberg Motorcar Series events will continue to welcome cars 1989 and older.
