Presented with the full support of the Town of Bristol, including Parks & Recreations and Explore Bristol, we invite you to join us in the Third Presentation of the annual British Motorcar Festival – Bristol, RI.  The extended weekend of June 8th - 11th, 2017 will prove to be “A Most Significant Event” for British Lifestyle Enthusiasts and Anglophiles alike. This event is presented by the event team of the British Invasion of Stowe, VT (the largest All-British Motorcar & British Lifestyle Event in the Eastern United States). We offer one of two All-British Invitational Concours d’Elegance for British Motorcars that are 25 years old and older.  (The British Invasion in Stowe, VT is the second one.)  Once again, we now include a Preservation Class within the Concours d’Elegance. The purpose of the preservation class is to encourage the preservation of British automobiles in as close to the original condition as possible. Detail guidelines for the Preservation Class provided in the separate Concours d’Elegance Section.
