{Bedford, New York} – The Turtle Invitational, the ultimate collector vehicle experience, is set to take place biennially at Turtle Garage in pastoral Bedford, New York, on September 24th, 2023.

This unique event brings together a group of passionate enthusiasts for a weekend of camaraderie, cars, cocktails, and conversations.

The Turtle Invitational is not just another stop on the Concours d’Elegance tour. It aims to create a spectacular weekend gathering where old friends are seen, and new ones are made. The event blends the gravitas of Davos, the quality of Amelia Island, the intrigue of an 18th-century French salon, and the intellectual stimulation of a 19th-century Chautauqua.

The 2023 Turtle Invitational will commence on Saturday afternoon with a rally at 3:00 pm at Turtle Garage, touring through bucolic northern Westchester County, and ending with an early dinner at the Pray Achievement Center in Bedford New York.

Sunday’s show will start at 10:00 am, with the Turtle Invitational gates opening at 7:30 am for the arrival of show cars, followed by judging.

Profits from the Turtle Invitational will benefit the Pray Family Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that continues the work of Malcolm Pray through the Malcolm Pray Achievement Center.

The Turtle Invitational is proud to announce the 2023 Honored Guest will be Skip Barber, a legend in American motorsport and an icon at Lime Rock Park.
