Even in the best case scenario, the forecast for this Sunday’s scheduled Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance includes rain, and lots of it. With a 100% chance of heavy precipitation forecast for Sunday and a sunshine-filled Saturday, Bill Warner and his team have chosen to move Sunday’s award-winning Concours to Saturday. The Concours show will now coincide with Saturday’s Cars & Coffee at the Concours presented by Heacock Classic Insurance.

The new schedule is as follows Saturday’s Cars & Coffee at the Concours: 9am until 1pm Saturday’s Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance 9:30am until 5pm

Saturday was beautiful and I am amazed at how well the Amelia staff pulled off the date change. Even the crowds looked great on Saturday.
