Concours d’Elegance Events
There’s a lot in store for the 2013 Palo Alto Concours d’ Elegance
Join us in June for the Drive, where our friends and patrons drive their classics along the Pacific Coast Highway with stops at scenic areas for photo ops, then journey back to the event for lunch at the Patrons Pavilion.
At different times during the day, we’ll have live music wafting thru the crowds. In 2012, four musical groups, The Elks Lodge of San Mateo, San Jose Metropolitan Bank, Left Bank / Rive Gauche, and Jayme Kelly Curtis / Gayle Topher were our featured performers and entertained us with music suitable for a day in the sun reviewing all the stunning automobiles on display. This year at our new venue in San Mateo will feature music and entertainment from local groups as well, join us.
Our Dinner for Charity event, a popular favorite, returns this year at the the University Club in Palo Alto. Details here about this years charity dinner.
Another popular spot at the Concours is the Cars for Sale area. Each year, many cars change hands in our “Concours for Sale” lot. You must provide your own FOR SALE sign, and pay a lot fee of $100, but that fee also gains you admission to the Concours for you and a guest. We suggest you bring alternate transportation to the Concours, in case you sell your car and need to find a way home.
The corral is an area for those cars and owners who want to be part of the event, but believe their car is not up judging standards. Perhaps you have after-market modifications or your car doesn’t fit into the SCCA classes for the Concours. Perhaps you want your car club representated here – all good reasons to bring your car(s) to the Corral. Details here.
In summary, beyond the day in the sun, the judging and entertainment aspects of the Concours, our June event is a great way to spend the day meeting old and new friends, sharing information and your love of automobiles and contribute to a number of worthy charities that serve the greater Bay Area. We hope to see you in June.
