Edinburg, VA10TH ANNUAL SHENANDOAH VINEYARDS CONCOURS
Saturday, September 8, 2007
The tour/caravan leaves the parking lot of the Cracker Barrel restaurant promptly at 9:30 A.M., as the driving time will be approximately an hour and a half. Cracker Barrel is located on Route 234 (Manassas exit) off I-66 west.
This event has been hosted by the vineyard in conjunction with their annual wine festival and by John Estep, owner of E&E Restorations and Service in Broadway, Virginia. The activity of the wine festival and the vineyard itself make for an excellent setting to host an all-BMW concours. This event has steadily grown since its inception seven years ago. The competition is keen but friendly, with cars coming in from as close as D.C. and Maryland and from as far away as North Carolina. This event is a low key, "top only" concours and serves as the last "judged" event of the season. Again, it's a "low key," fun event, and engine compartment judging will be optional. There will be first, second, and third place trophies for all classes, to include the following categories:
This is a family event so bring the kids, the dog, the neighbors, and grandma too. In addition to our car show, the wine festival will be in full swing all day long! The festival combines live music, good food, arts and crafts, wine tasting, and winery tours.
