In just eight days, thousands of car enthusiasts will crowd the Amelia Island barrier island for a weekend of displays, fine auctions, and concours. The sales and shows revolve around the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, the acme of Florida’s automotive calendar.
This weekend’s 12th annual St. Petersburg car show is one of the four Festivals of Speed that Florida plays host to every year. Hundreds of exotics and homegrown performance machines garner the attention of over 15,000 attendees, making any FOS display worth a trip.
Festivals of Speed celebrates its fourth year of providing the Amelia Island weekend with an upscale festival for as many as 20,000 enthusiasts with a thirst for speed. The varied roster of show cars offers something for every niche of the automotive interest.
For over ten years, Festivals of Speed has earned its spot at the apex of auto shows in the Southeastern United States. However, with a golf tournament and preshow reception benefitting The Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, this December’s Festivals of Speed in Orlando will be much more than just a “car show.”
