It all began in 2005 to focus the inhabitants of Bluffton, South Carolina; the young and old, rich and poor, locals and transplants, as a community, to benefit the citizens, the local area merchants and artists through tourism.
Those who experience the uniqueness of the Town of Bluffton had and continue to express the need to protect and maintain the pristine quality of the May River and the historic Bluffton Oyster Company, as they are both fundamental to the very essence of the community.
In the words of Dan Wood, Festival Founder:

Following the completion of the Sea Marsh course (now Heron Point) in 1964 and Harbour Town Golf Links in 1969, Hilton Head, by way of Sea Pines, launched an experiment that turned out to be one of the most prestigious and famous annual golf tournaments on the globe.
Today, Hilton Head Island golf courses are known around the world for challenging play and outstanding resort amenities.
In 1969, when Hilton Head Island was just a little-known Lowcountry treasure, Sea Pines developer Charles Fraser announced a PGA-level Tournament to be held at the newly created Harbour Town Golf Links over Thanksgiving weekend and that was the launch of the Heritage Classic.

In 1997, when Paul Doerring established "The Cars at The Creek" in Moss Creek Plantation it was a show concentrated on the use of the ‘motor’ in automobiles. Paul Doerring’s dream brought together a few hundred auto aficionados that came to display their vintage automobiles and view those restored and displayed by their fellow enthusiasts. The Cars at The Creek was the direct ancestor of Hilton Head Island Concours d'Elegance.
Twenty-one years later Doerring’s low key (by comparison) dream has expanded to last ten days and take place in two states.
In 2018, the entire festival will last from October 26 thru November 4, 2018 and will celebrate the colorful history of all motoring experiences from motorcycles to airplanes.

Early in the twentieth century, when the automobile became a device within the reach of more and more Americans, it was referred to by those folks who had lived during an era when most transportation was provided by horses as ‘a motor.’ The word automobile was not part of the English language until 1895 and even then, only in limited use.
