Gentlemen, Start Your Engines! A thrilling experience awaits you in Chocolatetown, USA! The Elegance at Hershey, now in its ninth year, is a three-day weekend fundraising event in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

Kicking off the weekend, guests can see, hear and feel the roar of vintage race cars at The Grand Ascent on June 7th and 8th starting at 9:00 a.m. Modeled, in part, on the previous Hershey Hill Climbs and the famed Goodwood Festival of Speed, mostly pre-war cars sanctioned by the Vintage Sports Car Club of America (VSCCA) entertain guests for a weekend of speed exhibitions.

The Elegance at Hershey provides for grandstands at the start and near the finish line along with a trail up the hill where spectators can watch and enjoy the cars during runs on Friday and Saturday. Each day during the noon hours, guests can opt to purchase a VIP ride ticket that will allow them to be treated to the thrilling experience of riding in one of the race cars with one of the professional drivers.

Stop back on Sunday to experience the Concours d’Elegance located in the pristine gardens of the Hotel Hershey.
