Jaguar Festival d’Elegance 2022

Another beautiful day on the Suncoast finds scores of Jaguars and other vehicle nestled underneath the shady live oaks and whispering palms of St. Armands Circle.

Following a four-week rescheduling necessitated by the devastating impact of Hurricane Ian, the 36thJaguar Festival d’Elegance took place October 29 at the prestigious venue at St. Armands Circle, Sarasota. As in previous years, the SBCC was invited as guests of the Sun Coast Jaguar Club to show our cars (including non-Jaguars). In fact, with 14 cars the SBCC had a substantial presence amongst the Jags.

The annual festival attracts many of the finest Jaguar automobiles, including antiques, current classics and modified prototypes. Awards were made to automobiles in a variety of classes. The sponsor, Jaguar Sarasota, also presented a display of the latest Jaguar models.

St Armands Circle is linked to the mainland by the John Ringling Causeway. In addition to car show enthusiasts, the show offers a spectator bonus for the hundreds of visitors already patronizing the many wonderful restaurants and varied shopping found in this district.
