Audrains Motor Week: The ultimate collector car experience returns to Newport

The height of the East Coast collector car scene has arrived once again. Billed as “A celebration of all things history, sport and luxury, Audrain’s Newport Concours D’Elegance will once again bring a new level of  excitement to the car collecting world. After a hiatus last year due to Covid-19, the Audrain’s Motor Week is back!  We were thrilled to spend three amazing days in Newport back in 2019 enjoying at atmosphere of fine autos, history, food, and camaraderie.  Attendees can spend their  days enjoying fine dining pop-ups, exhibitions of rare and exciting automobiles, seminars, shopping, tennis, golf and sailing along the Newport coast. Then, once the sun goes down, experience exclusive concerts, galas and VIP parties hosted in the mansions that  populate America’s original luxury capital.

The concours will be presented by the Audrain Automobile Museum in Newport R.I. which opened in 2014 and has been growing since . Even with years of successful events, Audrain’s wanted to bring a truly great concours to the area. A world class Concours & Motor Week event was so successful in 2019, that it has returned and promises to be even better.  This is If you are a car fan or know someone who is, then this is the event not to miss.
