As many Barrett-Jackson fans know, the auction itself is just one part of what happens around the enormous event sites each day. Guests at the inaugural 2023 New Orleans Auction at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center are able to enjoy live music in the Barrett-Jackson Fan Zone, complimentary Thrill Rides in the latest vehicles from Dodge and Toyota, shop in the vast Exhibitor Marketplace, and get some tips and tricks from the pros during the Adam’s Polishes detailing clinics.
