2023 International Jaguar Festival
September 28th to October 1, 2023
Columbia, South Carolina
IJF Concours d’Elegance at Saluda Shoals:
Jaguar Society of South Carolina (JSSC) will carry the JCNA banner and host the 2023 IJF in Columbia, South Carolina. Coventry Foundation has answered the call and will co-host with a reception, open house, cocktail hours and serve as a hub between our JCNA sanctioned concours, rally and slalom. We are calling on JCNA regional clubs and JCNA members and Jag enthusiasts to join us to make the 2023 IJF successful. Thanks to our Southeast Region for all your support!
This NOS IJF is planned as a high speed, low drag celebration with our warm Southern clime, vibe and cuisine; with fine, fast Jags and spirited drivers over four active days, at vintage cost.
Thursday, September 28th – Opening Reception and Open House
Thursday, from 2:00 PM to 9:00 PM, Coventry Foundation (“CF”) will host an open house with activities, heavy hors d’oeuvres and refreshments throughout the afternoon. Several Jags, the factory tool collection, rare Jaguar literature, media, and collectibles, and the JCNA archives, will be on view. Cheers to JCNA and CF Boards of Directors: a Cocktail hour with cash bar for all!
