33rd Annual British By the Sea – Connecticut (Rescheduled)

August 29 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

British By The Sea 2021 GENERAL INVITE Connecticut - Covid Revised

*** Event Postponed to August 29, 2021 ***

The Connecticut MG Club’s “BRITISH BY THE SEA” is a fun gathering of people who own and appreciate British Vehicles of all Marques. Although we do present etched glass mug awards to vehicles selected by popular vote, “BRITISH BY THE SEA” is not a judged show. We want to encourage ALL British car, truck, and motorcycle owners and enthusiasts to attend and have an enjoyable time. Whether your vehicle is in pristine condition, or a daily driver, sparkling paint and chrome or with “Barn Fresh” patina, it deserves to be part of the event and on the display field.

The Featured Marque for this year’s 33rd annual British By The Sea will be “The Outstanding Engineering of Modified MGs“.

As usual, our Featured Marque will Be prominently displayed in the front row and will have generous room to display the vehicles along with any club tents for memorabilia and hospitality.

Our BBTS Gathering is always scheduled on the first Sunday in June, at the scenic 240 acre Harkness Memorial State Park in Waterford, Connecticut, on the north shore of Long Island Sound. We want to encourage people to come down and enjoy a day mingling with other LBC owners, talk about cars, have a picnic, a glass of wine, and also take in all that Harkness Memorial State Park has to offer, such as the beach, the Mansion “Eolia”, and the Gardens. The Connecticut MG Club donates a large percentage of our proceeds from BBTS to the Park to purchase plants for the West Gardens, helping to restore the “Eolia” Gardens to their original grandeur as designed by Beatrix Farrand in 1919. In addition, we provide “people power” over a few weekends to plant them.

We have selected a variety of quality food vendors to attend in order to satisfy any appetite, from hot dogs and hamburgers, lobster rolls, deli sandwiches, and wood-fired brick oven pizzas, to Ice Cream for dessert. You can also bring a picnic to enjoy and share “out of the boot” of your car.

The expansive lawn areas offer ample room for the display of vehicles, vendors, spectator parking, and a spacious area for trailer parking.
