Santa Fe Concorso

Each of the past two Septembers we have enjoyed a distinctly different automotive experience in what we termed last year as “America’s Shangri-La”, Santa Fe. This September 26-28, the portal swings open again to this magical place in America. A quick glance at any map confirms that Santa Fe is not on any beaten path. With a city population of just 70,000, and a thriving art community, Santa Fe presents visitors an upscale version of Southwest culture. The schedule of events allows sufficient time for visitors to explore Santa Fe and get a feel for this unique community. The resident car enthusiast population is not large but very active and all appear to be involved in the weekend’s events.

Like many other events that for various and good reasons can never be a Pebble Beach or Villa d’Este, the organizers of the Santa Fe Concorso, former Michiganders Dennis and Beverly Little with help from the doyen of all things motorized, Denise McCluggage, have produced what may well be the prototype for this kind of event. An opportunity to participate in a broad selection of reasonably priced activities with like people in interesting settings.

Imagine, if you will, a motorsports oriented weekend in a small welcoming community with very reasonable hotel rates, which features, cheek by jowl: A thriving arts community, a fine and always interesting concorso, Southwestern cuisine and the best bakery/café in America, a fun tour through the high desert on wonderful roads, a world class opera facility, and an opportunity to personally interact with famous race car drivers, affordable native silver/turquoise jewelry on the Plaza, a Steve McQueen movie shown in a theatre named after a famous French writer/film director. And, there is much more.
