Dear Fellow Vintage Car Enthusiast,
On behalf of the Edison Concours d’Elegance at Llewellyn Park it gives me great pleasure to personally invite you to participate in our 1st Annual Classic Car Show to be held on October 16th-18th, 2015.
The show will be held on the grounds of the historic Estate of Thomas A. Edison, known as Glenmont. The Estate is located in the equally historic Llewellyn Park, which is the first planned and gated community in the United States. The Glenmont grounds provide an outstanding setting for the display of approximately 90 classic and exotic automobiles.
A few of the events planned include a welcoming reception on Friday night, a luncheon at the Edison Laboratory Saturday followed by a tour of the Edison Museum. Later that evening there will be a Gala at Highlawn Pavilion, one of the areas most renowned venues with picturesque views of the Manhattan skyline. Sunday, show day, will feature great cars, camaraderie and fun.
Entry applications are due by June 30th, 2015 in order that our selection committee has sufficient time to review each entry. Applicants should expect to be notified of the Committees decision by July 1st, 2015; however, it may be sooner depending on when applications are received. Additionally, please tell us about any automobile of interest, even if it does not fit into any of our pre-planned classes.
There are a number of fine hotels in the area, just minutes from all activities. We have a block of rooms reserved at The Marriot Residence Inn in West Orange, NJ. Entrants will be notified, with their acceptance letter, the name, address and contact person for hotel reservations. Entrants will also receive a detailed itinerary, including addresses and phone numbers for all events within their acceptance package.
Additionally, if you may also contact us directly at EdisonConcours@gmail.com.
While there is no entry fee, we encourage that you consider making a donation to our charities. Our event will give us the opportunity to help worthwhile educational programs in our community. We are proud to sponsor The West Orange Scholarship Fund, The Edison Innovation Foundation and the Llewellyn Park Preservation Foundation.
