THE PANHANDLE BRITISH CAR ASSOCIATION will present our 28th Pensacola British Car Show on April 17th-18th, 2020, scheduled to be held at Seville Square park (bordered by E.Government St, S.Alcaniz St, E.Zarragossa St. and S.Adams St), just two city blocks off E.Main St, and a short distance south-west of our previous location off 9th Ave. Seville Square is a shaded park only a few feet from the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It's a lovely vacation or weekend paradise only walking distance to restaurants and shopping in the historic downtown Pensacola area.

The "Participants Choice Award" and Class Awards are determined by the votes of registered show participants. The "Best of Show Award" is a Judged Award. Each vehicle entered will receive a ballot and dash plaque placed in the car at noon. Voting closes at 2:00 pm and awards are at 3:30pm. There are approximately 26 classes as determined by pre-registration numbers and each class will be awarded a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophy as applicable. There also are several special awards and some surprise awards. This is not a "concours" show, but a chance for British car lovers to get together, display their cars and have a good time. Any car can go home with a trophy. So bring your British "ride" this year and enjoy the camaraderie.

Schedule of Friday 4/16/2021 events:

  • PBCA is planning tours of the USS ALABAMA (BB-60) and NAS PENSACOLA National Museum of Naval Aviation:
    However, due to heightened security NAS PENSACOLA ACCESS TO THE MUSEUM IS CURRENTLY CLOSED. IF IT OPENS BEFORE THE SHOW, PBCA is planning a visit to the National Museum of Aviation at NAS Pensacola on Friday April 17. We will eat lunch at the museum cafe. The caravan will enter at the West Gate. Here is a map to the West Gate. Zoom in and you can see the Museum location. MORE DETAILS HERE CLOSER TO THE SHOW DATE.

    Remember, NAS Pensacola is an active US Navy base. Visitors to the Museum who do not have a DoD ID card ARE CURRENTLY NOW ALLOWED ACCESS. When they were allowed, they were required to enter and exit through the West Gate at the end of Blue Angel Parkway, NOT the main gate on Navy Blvd. Here is a link to the Navy Museum's website with instructions and directions: http://www.navalaviationmuseum.org/attractions/plan-visit/
