The Peninsula Hotels Signature Events and Quail Lodge & Golf Club have been closely monitoring the global spread of the virus and strictly adhering to the advice of City, County, State, and Federal government authorities and health officials daily. They are following all recommended guidelines for preventing the spread of the virus and its impact on the community as the safety and security of guests, entrants, partners, volunteers, and employees remain their highest priority. Therefore, after careful consideration they have made the difficult decision to suspend The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering that was scheduled to take place during Monterey Car Week on Friday, August 14, 2020, as well as The Quail Rally, the intimate multi-day motoring experience that was scheduled for Monday, August 10 through Wednesday, August 12, 2020.

As a long term partner of The Quail, Bonhams is very much aligned with this decision and will also postpone the 23rd Quail Lodge Auction originally scheduled for August 13 and 14, 2020. They will hold an alternate auction in California around this time for which details will be communicated by Bonhams directly in the near future.

With the suspension of this year’s event, the organizers look forward to welcoming everyone back to the 18th Annual The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering on Friday, August 13, 2021, hosted on the green grasses of the Quail Lodge & Golf Club in Carmel, California. The Quail Rally will re-commence Monday, August 9 through Wednesday, August 11, 2021. The 23rd Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction will take place on Thursday, August 12 and Friday, August 13, 2021.
