The 2021 Audrain Newport Concours & Motor Week is just one week away, September 30 through October 3. The avenues of Newport, RI, will be transformed into the home base for a fantastic and elaborate celebration of automotive excellence, luxury and sport. Audrain and the city of Newport will be rolling out the welcome mat to car lovers from all corners of the globe with an impressive selection of vintage automobiles rarely seen in public.
The four-day event features educational seminars, a black-tie gala, elegant lawn parties and of course, the internationally recognized Concours d’Elegance.
