Events: Councours d'Elegance

By Adam Sievering · June 8th, 2010 · CityBeat Recommends

The 33rd annual Concours d’ Elegance vintage car show transforms Cincinnati’s historic Ault Park into a showcase lot for more than 200 collector vehicles belonging to over a dozen distinct classes. Originally held at the estate of Bill and Helen Williams in Cincinnati, the Concours d’ Elegance was based on the famous Pebble Beach Concours in California. Since 1978, Concours d’ Elegance has earned the reputation of being one of the most anticipated classic car shows in the United States.

This year’s theme, “International Designers and Coachbuilders,” is a tribute to the quality and craftsmanship of automobiles from around the world, with representation from the United States, France, Germany, Great Britain and Italy. Car classes span the last hundred years of automotive ingenuity, including antiques, pre-war vintage vehicles, sports classics, foreign cars and future classics. To seal the deal, special displays of historic hot rods, vintage beach cars and Alfa Romeo collector vehicles are open to the public. Admission is $20 in advance or $25 day of show. Free for children 12 and under. 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
