The Gasparilla Concours d’Elegance was founded in Tampa, Florida in 2017 as a 501(c)3 non-profit. After 2+ year of planning and hundreds of volunteer hours by over 150 people the Inaugural Gasparilla Concours d’Elegance came together in an exquisite and unique event in Tampa Florida.
The name “Gasparilla” is synonymous with the Tampa Bay area’s most famous social season. Beginning in 1904 local Tampa residents have celebrated the friendly invasion of pirate José Gaspar (also known as Gasparilla), a famous pirate of foklore.
