Jul 11, 2024

CHATTANOOGA (July 11, 2024) – Registration is now open for two events at the Fifth Annual Chattanooga Motorcar Festival, October 11-13, 2024: the Concours d’Elegance and the J. Willard Marriott Ferrari Club.

Fourteen classes will be judged by experts in Sunday’s Concours d’Elegance, led by Chief Judge Mike Tillson. “We will present a diverse collection of significant and classic cars again this year,” said Concours Director Ken Gross. “The quality and number of important cars the Festival has featured the last four years rivals the top events in the car collector world. We’re asking for owners to sign up early, to ensure we continue that trend.”

Also highlighted will be the J. Willard Marriott Ferrari Club, in a new exclusive location in West Village. “We expect another outstanding display of world-class Ferraris from around the nation that fans will enjoy,” said Steve Ahlgrim, Ferrari Coordinator for the Festival. “Membership in the J. Williard Marriott Ferrari Club is open to Ferrari owners who can bring a great Ferrari to the show. Ferrari owners should register soon.”

This makes it perfect for families of every age to enjoy each day’s events.”

Other happenings during the Festival include activities for children and adults, celebrity meet and greets, car club gatherings, specialty displays, Concours d’Lemons, street festivals, a parade, and more.
