Celebration, Fla. – The Celebration Exotic Car Festival is a four-day children’s charity event that showcases one of the nation’s largest gatherings of exotic, race, and Hollywood movie cars as well as actors and celebrities, all taking place in central Florida each spring. This April marked the 16th annual meeting in Celebration, Florida, for the popular festival, which began on Thursday April 4th at Daytona International Speedway.
For two days, participants could drive their exotic or race car on the track for some high performance action before the event moved to Celebration for the show portion of the extended weekend. This year’s Hard Rock Live event offered entertainment from Steve Martin and Martin Short before the big draw came in the form of Made Man Magazine’s “Top 5 best Exotic Car Shows in the World” – otherwise known as the Concours of Exotic Cars in Downtown Celebration.
Longtime Shelby enthusiast and SAAC-MCR club founder Jeff Burgy had attended the show and snapped photos of Ford-built and Ford-powered rides that were on display there. He’s agreed to share his photos us in the gallery below:
