Car Classic 2014

Art Center College of Design

870 South Raymond, Pasadena, 91105

9:00am to 4:00pm

Car Classic serves as a reminder that behind every beautifully designed car is an innovative and talented designer—one most likely educated at Art Center College of Design. For more than 10 years, Art Center’s Car Classic event has examined automotive culture and vehicle architecture through the lens of design. More than just another high-profile car show, this popular public event celebrates the very best in automotive design, showcasing the College’s strong ties to industry and honoring many of our noteworthy alumni.

Join us this year for "Street to Screen" as Art Center Car Classic explores the impact transportation and entertainment design has on Hollywood and the entertainment industry—on camera, on the road and behind the scenes. Transportation designers, car collectors, filmmakers and auto and lifestyle enthusiasts will converge at Art Center’s annual event to hear from and meet the people who design the vehicles that we love to see cruising Sunset Boulevard, coasting along scenic byways or roaring to life on the big screen.

It's a daylong celebration, providing attendees an up-close-and-personal look at a carefully curated selection of innovative vehicles, rare automobiles and stunning concept cars.

Breeder’s Cup at Santa Anita Park

Santa Anita Park

285 West Huntington Drive, Arcadia, CA 91007

10:00am to 5:00pm

(OCT. 31-NOV. 1) The world’s greatest have to start somewhere. And for the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, that somewhere was Hollywood Park, 30 years ago. What began as a one day, 7-race event has grown into a two-day, $26 million extravaganza attracting the best horses, trainers, and owners from across the globe. It has also become the unofficial end and culmination of the thoroughbred-racing season, often with the Breeders’ Cup Classic being the deciding factor in Horse of the Year. And while these two days have seen legends born, history made, and fortunes won, the greatest part is that the best is still yet to come.

 The gates are open and the race is on for the best seats! And as a friend of the Breeders’ Cup, you get a head start on purchasing tickets to 2014 Breeders' Cup World Championships before they go on sale to the general public. Don't miss your opportunity to witness the best of the best compete at beautiful Santa Anita Park on October 31 and November 1.

Some of the world’s greatest and smallest artisanal beer, cider, and mead makers will join us to meet festival attendees and share their stories and knowledge. You’d have to spend months and countless dollars for a chance to meet this many world-class brewers. We’ve saved you the trouble and the expense — they’ll all be on hand personally to talk about their work and to pour for you. And many will be creating special brews specifically for the event — you won’t be able to find them anywhere else!

Admission to the festival gets you our special-edition sample glass, plus the opportunity to meet more than 70 of the best beer, cider, and mead makers in the world. The cost of admission also goes to covering the costs of the festival, including bringing these incredible brewers in from all over the world. Additionally, a portion of admission ticket sales will go directly to our local nonprofit partner, Sharefest. (Seriously, check them out. They're awesome and they do so much for Los Angeles.)

Upon arrival, you'll have the opportunity to purchase drink tickets, the entire proceeds of which will go to Sharefest. Each ticket is worth a two-ounce pour, and the pricing is as follows: $5 for 5, or a special deal of $20 for 24.

Every producer listed will be on hand to talk about their creations. Never before have this many small-batch artisans been gathered together in one room — well, maybe at last year's festival. This is currently just a partial list, and we'll be updating it on Facebook, and on our website (sheltonbrothers.com/festival).
