Parade Banquets



The 2015 Sixtieth Anniversary Parade will include five evening banquets, all of which will be held on the grounds of the bucolic French Lick Resort. Within the resort, we will have a variety of venues with meals prepared by world class chefs using farm to table foods from the heartland of America.




Sunday—Pirelli Welcome Party: The Pirelli Welcome Party will be held on Sunday evening in the upper and lower gardens at the French Lick Hotel. On the menu is a Southern Indiana Buffet of local specialties. This inaugural event of the Sixtieth Porsche Parade will feature a 60’s theme, including a costume contest. Dig up some bell bottoms and love beads and join us for a fun-filled evening to kick off this year’s Parade.


Porsche North America

Tuesday—Porsche Concours Banquet: The Porsche Concours Banquet, held on Tuesday evening, is our most formal event and celebrates the winners of the Concours d’ Elegance. The menu for this banquet includes a dual entrées of beef and seafood, local produce, as well as a dual dessert. This Diamond Anniversary event will be held in the Atrium of the West Baden Springs Hotel, a truly magnificent space topped by a stained glass dome reminiscent of the grandeur of an earlier age


Mobil 1

Wednesday—Mobil 1 Rally Banquet: The Mobil 1 Rally Banquet, featuring a BBQ buffet, will be held at the West Baden Stables, another scenic outdoor setting. The TSD Rally Awards will be presented at this event.



Friday—Michelin Autocross Banquet: The Michelin Autocross Buffet Dinner, scheduled for Friday evening, will be held at the Event Center at the French Lick Resort. For this event we will go “Back to the Eighties”. Who can forget the decade that brought us big hair, big cell phones, the Material Girl and the introduction of the Porsche 944? The Autocross Awards, as well as the Gimmick Rally Awards will be presented at this event.


Reliable Carriers

Saturday— Reliable Carriers Victory Banquet: To end our week together we will gather back at the Atrium in the West Baden Hotel for the Reliable Carriers Victory Banquet. This plated dinner in the elegant Atrium will be a fitting end to the Sixtieth Porsche Parade. Before we bid farewell for another year, the grand prize winner of the “Trip to Germany” will be announced. The menu for this event will again feature local farm to table specialties.

Last minute scheduling changes for Parade Week are announced at the banquet closest to the event affected.

Trophies are not shipped and need to be picked up at the event banquet or at the Parade Trophy Office by 11 am Saturday, June 27.
