The list of public automotive events cancelled in response to the COVID-19 pandemic keeps growing. Barrett-Jackson’s 5th Annual Northeast Auction, scheduled for June 24-27, 2020, at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, is one of the latest to be cancelled.

Barrett-Jackson says it based its decision on two things. One, the uncertainty of live events being permitted by local and state officials during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Two, the company wants to protect the health and safety of all auction participants and employees.

“We spent a great deal of time consulting with local public health and government officials,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The team at Mohegan Sun has also been a tremendous resource for us throughout this process. However, it became clear there is simply too much uncertainty about hosting a multi-day live event during this public health crisis. Given the incredible amount of work and time that goes into producing a Barrett-Jackson event, it unfortunately is not feasible for us to move forward in Connecticut.”

Ticket holders will receive a full refund.

“The Barrett-Jackson community is really a big family that unites when times get tough,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “This is certainly one of those times. The decision against holding our Northeast Auction wasn’t made lightly, but I have faith we’ll pull together through this crisis and look forward to a time when we can gather again.”

Barrett-Jackson’s Online Only May 2020 Auction will be held May 8-17, 2020. In addition, fans are encouraged to stay tuned for an announcement regarding a summer Barrett-Jackson auction. Click here for details of the online auction.
