2021 Lincoln Homecoming

2021 Lincoln Homecoming

The 2021 Lincoln Homecoming theme will be “Marks Through the Ages.” The 2021 Homecoming will feature all Continentals, from the first one (introduced in 1940) through the Mark VIII. The Homecoming will be held August 13-15 at the Lincoln Motor Car Heritage Museum, on the campus of the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, Mich.

“We’re looking forward to seeing Continental Marks from all eras,” said David Schultz, LMCF chairman. “That includes original, restored and customized Continentals. Owners need not be members of a Lincoln club to display their Continental.”

Check the LMCF web site for more information as it becomes available.

NOTE: The 2021 Homecoming Committee is seeking volunteers for the 2021 Homecoming.

2020 Lincoln Homecoming Cancelled Due to COVID-19 Virus; 2021 Plans Announced

2020 Lincoln Homecoming Cancelled Due to COVID-19 Virus; 2021 Plans Announced

The impact and uncertainty of the COVID-19 virus has forced cancellation of the 2020 Lincoln Homecoming, which would have celebrated the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Lincoln Motor Company in 1920.

As most of you know, automotive events—nationally, regionally and locally—have been cancelled or postponed.

Although we initially received strong registrations for this year’s event, those have tapered off in recent weeks as concern over the COVID-19 virus deepened.

The Lincoln Motor Car Foundation Homecoming committee made this decision now because it did not wish to jeopardize the health of attendees and because it did not wish to hold a less-than-stellar event. There is also the issue of financial exposure for the Foundation.

"This decision was made after long and thoughtful discussion by the leadership of the LMCF Homecoming Committee, which included our host club, the Lincoln and Continental Owners Club,” said David Schultz, LMCF Chairman. “All of us were looking forward to the centennial celebration."

Refunds will be issued for reservations made for the 2020 Lincoln Homecoming. Attendees are personally responsible for cancelling their hotel reservations.

Some participants have generously donated their refund. If you would like to donate some or all of your refund to the Maintenance Fund, which helps to pay for the ongoing cost to operate the Museum, it's not too late. Please click here to go to the Contact Us page so that you can send us your instructions or ask questions.

Looking ahead, the Foundation will celebrate the Lincoln centennial in 2022, when the Ford Motor Company and its Lincoln Motor Company division celebrate Ford Motor Company’s acquisition of Lincoln in February 1922. The 2021 Lincoln Homecoming theme will be “Marks Through the Ages”, which will feature the Continentals from the first one in 1940 through to the Mark VIII. Watch this site for further information.
