2015 and 2016, 2017 and now 2018 were capped off by ARCC/Darling’s Annual Corvette Autumn Shows held at Darlings Chevrolet in Ellsworth, Maine. The shows hosted by ARCC (Acadia Region Corvette Club) and sponsored by Darlings Chevrolet to celebrate the spectacular fall foliage of the Acadia Region of Maine and America’s Sports Car were terrific successes. Approximately 50 beautiful Vettes from C2 thru C7 from New England and Canada attended each year.
We are now announcing the 7th edition of this popular event. The 2019 show will be somewhat earlier in the fall to, hopefully, garner warmer temperatures and less wind. This year’s show will be Friday and Saturday, Sept. 13 and 14.
The weekend will begin with a “Start Your Engines Party” on Friday, Sept 13 ( at the Ellsworth Elks Club on High Street, 4:30 until???) The party will be open to all pre registered entrants and entrants registering at that venue. The party will be hosted by ARCC offering a free buffet and a cash bar. The highlight of the weekend will be an all Corvette judged show Saturday, Sept 14 at the Darlings Chevrolet facility at 121 Downeast Highway, Ellsworth Maine. Registration opens at 9:00 am. (Please have all show cars at the venue between 9 and 10 am.) Judging begins at 10:00 am. Cars arriving after 10:00 will not be judged, but may enter as “for show only” participants. Food vendors will be onsite to offer a variety of choices for lunch. The show will end in a trophy presentation in early afternoon. As in the past, some games of skill will be offered with the proceeds supporting Sarah’s House (a very low cost temporary residence for persons undergoing cancer treatment in Bangor.) Details and timing are in development, so check back often to sign up and plan your visit to our home area.
The registration form may be downloaded now and mailed in to secure the early registration discounted fee.
