Concorso Ferrari & Friends

Concorso Ferrari & Friends was created by a group of Ferrari owners who wanted to use their exotic automobiles to put smiles on the faces of patients at Connecticut Children’s. Now in its 20th year, Concorso Ferrari & Friends has become the signature automobile event in Southern New England. It celebrates all makes and models of Italian automobiles—from vintage Alfa Romeos, Fiats and Lamborghinis to the supercars of Ferrari, Pagani, Maserati, and Italian Motorcycles are also welcome! This jaw-dropping event is held to raise awareness and critical funding to support Connecticut Children’s.
