Chrome So Bright, You’ll Need Shades
What’s that car you’ve always dreamed of owning? Every car enthusiast has one, and this just might be your opportunity to drive away with it. As the most elite auto auction in Florida, Barrett-Jackson brings hundreds of cars worth millions in total value – drawing around 50,000 people each year.
Mint 1950s beauties, eye-popping exotics, muscle cars worthy of Steve McQueen or even late-models from Land Rover, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz are among the highly sought-after, lightly used cars for sale here each year. What will cross the block this time around? You’ll just have to come and see.
Not Just for Car Connoisseurs
Think the Barrett-Jackson auction is just about cars? Think again. The South Florida Fairgrounds will be humming with diverse activity, from start to finish.
An Opening Night Gala presents a glitzy evening of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and live music, with gourmet cuisine and non-stop entertainment continuing throughout the weekend. There’s also a sprawling Exhibitor Marketplace that promises something for everyone; in addition to top-of-the-line gear, accessories and memorabilia, there’s a wide selection of art, fashion, jewelry and other lifestyle items sure to rev any attendee’s engine.
Automobilia & Petroliana
If a whole car is too much to take home, capture a piece of the past at the Barrett-Jackson Automobilia Auction. Car-culture and pop-culture enthusiasts alike will delight in this colorful array of fine, rare and one-of-a-kind hood mascots, vintage gas pumps, dealership signs, racing posters and more. Almost every item is sold at no reserve to the highest bidder, which means all levels of buyers can have their shot.
Stay & Play in The Palm Beaches
Whether you’ll be exploring the area in a new set of wheels or the ones you rode in on, there’s so much to put on the itinerary. Create your own American Graffiti moment with a waterfront cruise down Flagler Avenue in downtown West Palm Beach. At night, head to the vibrant Clematis Street Entertainment District or CityPlace for great restaurants, bars and venues with live music.
The Palm Beaches are also a golfer’s paradise, with more than 160 courses in total. Bringing the family? They’ll love a walk on the wild side at the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society or Lion Country Safari in nearby Loxahatchee. And that’s not even mentioning our 47 miles of sun-drenched beaches.
Choose from a range accommodations within a short drive of the South Florida Fairgrounds – from the affordably elegant Hilton West Palm Beach to the legendary luxury of The Breakers, just across the Intracoastal Waterway in tony Palm Beach.
