Concorso Ferrari & Friends @ West Hartford Center
Jun 23 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Paint the Town Ferrari Red and Join Us for Concorso Ferrari & Friends.

Concorso Ferrari & Friends was created by a group of owners who wanted to use their exotic automobiles to put smiles on the faces of patients at Connecticut Children’s. Now in its 19th year, Concorso Ferrari & Friends is the signature automobile event for Southern New England. It celebrates all makes and models of Italian automobiles—from vintage Alfa Romeos, Fiats and Lamborghinis to the supercars of Ferrari, Pagani and Maserati—while raising awareness and critical funding to support Connecticut Children’s.
