Location: McKee Botanical Garden

This year, forty-three Corvettes, including one from each of the first 20 years of production, will be on display. There will be different years of Indy 500 pace cars, anniversary editions, and restomods.

Specialty makers’ Corvettes will include a Callaway and an 835 supercharged horse power Yenko with a seven speed manual transmission that pushes it to 210+ mph, going 0-60 in 2.8 seconds. Each Corvette in the motor car exhibition is pre-selected to assure the highest quality and greatest variety.

Indian River County’s pioneer Ruth Hallstrom’s 1962 Corvette convertible is being brought by Fred Hamilton of Tampa and will be on display.  It was among the first Corvettes ever in this county.

Cars are coming from Tampa, Minneola, The Villages, Winter Springs, Groveland, Palm Coast, New Smyrna Beach, Titusville, Merritt Island, Cocoa Beach, Viera, Melbourne, Indiatlantic, Palm Bay, Micco, Oakland Park, Jupiter, Juno Beach, Stuart, Palm City, Port St. Lucie, and Hutchinson Island, in addition to Vero Beach and Sebastian.

Enjoy two exhibitions for the price of one! This year, the show is being held in conjunction with Seward Johnson’s Celebrating the Familiar sculpture exhibition which includes his 25 ft. tall monumental bronze statue, Embracing Peace, and features twenty life-scale bronze figures depicting what Seward Johnson refers to as “the beautiful moments of ordinary life.” These extraordinary sculptures celebrate “the emotional and spiritual sustenance and pleasure that nature can provide to help us deal with life’s inevitable struggles.”

Admission is $12 for adults, $11 for seniors (65+), and $8 for children ages 3-12. McKee members and children under 3 are free.
