Concours d'Elegance

The crème de la crème of cars and motorcycles will be on display this weekend for the 45th annual Concours d’Elegance in Ault Park.

Concours d’Elegance is a nationally recognized event that highlights North America’s premier collector automobiles and motorcycles and brings in automotive enthusiasts of all ages. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 11, and the theme for this year’s showcase is “75 Years of Porsche.”

Nearly 250 vehicles will be displayed in the gardens, with 11 classes of classic, vintage and exotic automobiles and motorcycles. There will also be special display classes like the 70th Anniversary of the Corvette and the 85th Anniversary of the Volkswagen Beetle.

Concours d’Elegance will also host the Will Sherman Automotive Art Show, which displays local and national automotive artists.

There will be a variety of food offerings, including Midwest Best BBQ, Graeter’s Ice Cream, Street Pops and more. You can also enjoy brunch at the Pavilion from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. for $60. Advanced reservations are required.

A craft beer garden featuring local brews from Northern Row Brewery & Distillery, Esoteric Brewing Company and Streetside Brewery will be set up next to the Pavilion from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Beer garden tickets are $7 a pour and can be bought day of.

Tickets for the showcase can be reserved online here. Adult tickets are $30 and student tickets (with a valid ID) are $15. Day-of tickets are $35 for adults; $15 for students and children 12 and under get in for free.

Spectator parking is located at the Fifth-Third Bank Operations Center at 5020 Duck Creek Road, with shuttle service to the park. Organizers say parking near Ault Park will be very limited, so you’re encouraged to use the spectator parking lot.
