The 25th annual Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance weekend in northeast Florida, customarily held each year during the second weekend of March, moves ahead one week for 2020 because of a conflict with a couple of major Florida sports events.

The change to the first full weekend, March 6-8, 2020, was announced by the concours committee in response to The Players Championship golf tournament in Ponte Vedra Beach and the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, both of which are being held during the weekend of March 13-15, when the concours events ordinarily would be happening.

The concours weekend has evolved during the past quarter century into a full slate of collector car events, including a number of shows and auctions, culminating with the Amelia Island Concours on Sunday.

The concours is held on the fairways of the Golf Club of Amelia Island at the Ritz-Carlton Resort. For more information, visit the concours website.
