"Carmel Mission feeds the spirit, fine cars feed the passion, fine wine and gourmet food feed the body. Join us in celebrating all three." 
Frank DiPaola, Event Chairman
Roger Pendenza, Event Co-Chairman

A ONE OF A KIND EVENT   combining the passion for fine automobiles with the Faith and the Palate. Enjoy wine tasting by some of Monterey County's finest vineyards, a self-guided tour, and beautiful live harp music in the background as you stroll the grounds of the crown jewel of the Monterey Peninsula, the Historic Carmel Mission. A no host gourmet food bar will also be available by a local chef.
All net proceeds go to the charities of the Knights of Columbus and Carmel Mission!

This original work of art by renowned Carmel artist Ed Greco is the featured artwork on our 2017 event poster. The original painting will be auctioned off during the 2017 event. 

The 2017 Carmel Mission Classic will be held on Wednesday, August 16th.  Please click here to submit a photograph and an application online for review by the Entrants' Committee.   Tickets to the event will be available for purchase online after May 1, 2017.
