Fall Festival and Concours d’Elegance at BeaveRun

Friday, September 9th & Saturday, September 10th, 2005


Benefiting the construction of the new children’s playroom in the emergency department at The Medical Center, Beaver, part of the
Heritage Valley Health System.


Please join us for our inaugural Fall Festival and Concours d’Elegance at BeaveRun on September 9th and 10th. While we are certainly automotive and motorsports enthusiasts, we are also dedicated to our community, and have decided to donate proceeds from our Fall Festival and the Concours d’Elegance to The Medical Center, Beaver, to fund the construction of a children’s play area in the emergency department. We will create proceeds by offering to our patrons a unique festival celebrating friendship, elegance and motorsports.


The Concours will present a select and unique group of motorcars at BeaveRun MotorSports Complex while we also host a fun rally, Viper Days, the Altered Gas Hot Rod Circus, the Beaver County Cruise, live music, fireworks and a special Moving Moments Preview Reception.


The Concours d’Elegance will feature a unique group of cars such as a 1901 Artzberger, the 1903 Baker Electric, The $750,000+ Callaway collection, a 100 point 1966 Pontiac GTO Convertible, a GT-1 Corvette, the $1.5M MARK II GT-40 and a 1953 one-of-a-kind race car provided by The National Packard Museum.

Unlike many Concours, the Concours d’Elegance at BeaveRun will be part of an exciting day of motorsports, racing, muscle car displays, activities and music. The festival will bring back memories with
music by Pure Gold and be punctuated with fireworks on Saturday at dusk. We are limiting the number of cars to be judged to 80 of the finest motorcars among those submitted for showing and we will not favor any marque.

We also invite Concours entries to participate in a
fun rally through scenic western Pennsylvania during the morning of Friday, September 9th.

On Friday evening at 7:00, the BeaveRun Hospitality Center will come to life with the Moving Moments Preview Reception. We will feature hors d’oeuvres prepared by some of the finest chefs in the area, live music, new artwork celebrating moving moments in time, track rides in fine automobiles and an auction of surprising gifts. The silent auction will include such notable items as: 

  • 2 weekend "getaway packages"

  • Sports memorabilia

  • A 2-day Bertil-Roos Racing School valued at nearly $3,000.

The Moving Moments Preview Reception will also be featuring a five-car display of rarely-seen Callaway vehicles.

In summary, we invite you to join us in this festival, where racers, enthusiasts, spectators and sponsors will gather to enjoy themselves, to drive through beautiful countryside, to race, to compete, to view and to immerse themselves in motorcars and motorsports, to hear wonderful music and to watch spectacular fireworks. We promise to create a time that you, your friends and business associates will not forget


Don't miss this weekend of excitement... from poring over the cars in the Concours d'Elegance to watching wheel-to-wheel racing action on the track.
