Signature Parking has signed an agreement with Stratus Media to be the exclusive Parking & Transportation partner for the 2010 Santa Barbara Concours d’Elegance - returning to the Santa Barbara Polo Fields October 29-31. The 24th Annual Santa Barbara Concours d’Elegance, will display some 200 of the world’s finest automobiles on a spectacular site of Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club. The event is a multi day festival event honoring the design and engineering of the sleek and powerful Italian Automobiles, as well as the creativity and nostalgia of American classics, muscle cars, hot rods and custom cars and a day of traditional, judged classic automobiles shows called the Concours d’ Elegance. In addition the weekend festival will include car club corrals, motorcycle exhibits, live entertainment, and an evening cocktail gala benefiting a select charity.
This is a very unique concept in our industry. Stratus is building on its history of producing preeminent Concours d’ Elegance Auto Shows, premier fashion shows, wine festivals and art exhibits and will combine all of this into these weekend festivals. This year, Stratus Media Group will host the Santa Barbara Vino D’ Elegance Wine Festival, showcasing local wineries and food vendors, creating an interactive as well as delicious atmosphere! A portion of the entry fees and proceeds from the wine festival will go to benefit local charities. Also included in the weekend’s events are the Inaugural Cocktail Party, Children’s Activities, Commercial Exhibitions, and in the spirit of Halloween, a Masquerade Gala! VIP access and general public tickets are available as well.
Stratus also recently announced they will be bringing the famed Mille Miglia Italian car race to the U.S. The Mille Miglia is an open-road endurance race which is currently one of the most important classic sports cars events in the world. From 1927 to 1957, the Mille Miglia was a legendary speed race focused on drivers, challenges and adventures. Today, the legacy of the Mille Miglia remains strong through the use of yesterday’s cars on today’s roads. This year, a Mille Miglia Salute Road Rally will be held on Friday October 29th as a kick-off to the weekend Concours D’Elegance activities.
Signature Parking is excited to be associated with such a legendary and prestigious event as the Concours D’Elegance & the Mille Migilia and we look forward to helping manage the various parking and transportation needs for this great weekend event.
