2019 Benedict Castle Concours

Benedict Castle Concours 6 weeks away!

We are excited to announce the 6th Annual Benedict Castle Concours is only 6 weeks away! This very special car show is tucked away in Riverside, California on Sunday, March 31st, 2019. The Benedict Castle is known as the “Jewel of the Inland Empire”, a unique and historic location where over 100 movies have been filmed including the Hunchback of Notre Dame, Bride of Frankenstein, and Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein, making for a unique and engaging venue.

The Benedict Castle Concours is praised as one of the finest events in Southern California, a MUST attend each year. This show is 100% for the benefit of Teen Challenge, the oldest, largest and most successful drug and alcohol recovery program with over 1300 centers worldwide. We put this on for Teen Challenge of Southern California, a year long, residential program at NO cost to the students. They have over 600 beds in centers from Fresno to San Diego for teens, men and women of all ages. We believe there could be no better cause and work hard all year to make this show very special for all who attend and show their vehicles as well as raising over $200,000 each year for Teen Challenge.

This one-of-a-kind destination provides an unforgettable experience. From the beautifully maintained grounds to the impressive main entry, just arriving at Benedict Castle becomes an event. But that’s just the beginning! Wait until you walk through the gates and see green hills full of fabulous, best-of-the-best automobiles from ALL genres of the car hobby. We show the Pre-War and Post-War Classics, European Classics, Japanese Classics, Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, Low Riders, the BEST Customs in the world, Race Cars, Specialty Cars, even the original Munster Koach will be joining us this year. What more could you ask for? How about a real Castle right at the center of all the action!

The Presenting Sponsors are Meguiar’s Car Care Products (and yes Barry Meguiar’s daughter, Nicole Meguiar is the show Founder & Producer!) and the Petersen Automotive Museum who host a beautiful VIP Pavilion perched just up on the lawns overlooking the cars. Our very impressive list of other sponsors include the Nethercutt Museum (who host, would you believe, a Nethercutt High Tea & Fashion Show right at noon in the Castle Sanctuary), Coker Tire, O’Reilly Auto Parts, DuPont Registry (this year will be the first ever DuPont Registry People’s Choice Award with voting by texting), Von Hot Rod, Bruce Meyer, Aaron and Valerie Weiss, Bruce Wanta, RME, Packard’s International, OC Mustang Club, and finally Barris Kustoms.
