“We’re thrilled to be returning to Palm Beach and reconnecting with the collector car community in South Florida,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Our Palm Beach Auction is the second-longest running Barrett-Jackson event, and prior to 2020, we held our annual Palm Beach Auction for 17 consecutive years. The excitement and pent-up demand for this event is profound, and I look forward to sharing it with fans around the world through our great partners at A+E Networks.”
Due to an overwhelming number of consignments, exceptional automobilia offerings and an eagerness to be a part of Barrett-Jackson’s return to Palm Beach, original broadcast hours were extended on both Friday and Saturday to include more primetime coverage.

“The response from the collector car community as we head back to South Florida for the first time in three years has been incredible,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “Not just the sheer numbers, but the quality of vehicles and automobilia consigned is exceptional, and we’re proud to announce extended primetime hours on both Friday and Saturday. We are very proud of our relationship with our broadcast partner A+E and appreciate that they recognize the depth and scope of our Palm Beach Auction. We look forward to sharing this excitement with millions of viewers watching from home.”
