Audrain’s Newport Concours & Motor Week


Newport, America's original luxury capital


The question really is not what will you do, but rather, how will you do it all?


That really reflects all the events, displays and opportunities at Audrain’s Newport Concours & Motor Week, coming up in about a week in Newport, Rhode Island.


The Automotive Displays on historic properties around Newport highlight the Audrain's Newport Concours & Motor Week, but by no means is that the only event that will make this something that is talked about for years and years in Rhode Island.


October 3rd to the 6th is the main Concours and Motor Week, highlighted by a concert featuring John Legend that will be held at the International Tennis Hall of Fame. There is a Luxury Lawn Party at Doris Duke’s Rough Point, called The Gathering, An exclusive weekend of the finest dining, exhibitions, and luxury brands in the world, hosted in America's original luxury capital.


Ticket prices range from $15 to several thousands for all the events, and for most of us the opportunity to ooh and aah will come during the Tour d’Elegance, on Saturday, October 5th from 6am to 2pm, when all cars associated with the event will participate in Audrain’s Newport Concours d’Elegance and will be a spectacle not worth missing. The Claiborne Pell Newport Bridge is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019 and theTour will be an integral part of the celebration. The tour begins Saturday morning on the west end of the Newport Bridge in Jamestown with a staged photo on top of the bridge.

The tour then winds through downtown Newport stopping for coffee and photos at Ft. Adams State Park overlooking the harbor and Newport Bridge, continuing with a Scenic drive along historic Ocean Drive and the breathtaking Atlantic Ocean. The tour ends on Bellevue Avenue with all cars parking together on the closed street for the public to view and interact with drivers and owners. Owners and drivers will be treated to a special lunch at the landmark Newport restaurant, LaForge, while the public enjoys the local vendors and food trucks.
