Car enthusiasts are in for a treat this Saturday! On September 8, 80 Bugatti cars — including the ultra-rare, $40 million-plus 1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantics — will parade from the Avenue of the Pines to downtown Saratoga. Read on for everything you need to know about the Bugatti Parade at Saratoga Wine & Food Festival!
Bugattis on Broadway
Starting at the Avenue of the Pines at 4:30 PM, the luxury Bugatti cars will head north on Broadway to Ellsworth Jones Place near the Saratoga Springs City Center. Leading the procession will be two rare 1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantics, owned by Mullin Automotive Museum and Ralph Lauren. Part of SPAC’s efforts to create a local business community with international reach, the parade is a result of collaboration between SPAC, the Saratoga Automobile Museum, Colin Cowie Lifestyle, the City of Saratoga Springs, the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce, and the Saratoga Convention and Tourism Bureau. Visitors will be able to watch the impressive parade of vehicles from the sidewalk or at several gathering areas en route.
“We are so excited to have these amazing Bugattis right here in Saratoga Springs,” Saratoga Automobile Museum Executive Director Carly Connors said in a statement. “This will be an incredible sight to behold for the entire Capital Region and will be something that we will all remember forever.”
The Bugatti Parade, led by the International Bugatti Tour, will coincide with the Saratoga Wine & Food Festival Grand Tasting. Each year, SPAC’s Wine & Food Festival raises funds for educational programming with a day of delicious food and wine sampling. Not only will this year’s festival feature the International Bugatti Tour and Grand Tasting on Saturday, but Friday’s Adirondack Road Tour and Luncheon and Fired Up! Grill Competition, as well as a Sunday brunch with renowned event planner Colin Cowie and celebrity chef Todd English.
