A Concours d'Elegance (from French meaning a competition of elegance) dates back to 17th Century French aristocracy, who paraded horse-drawn carriages in the parks of Paris during summer weekends and holidays. Over time, carriages became horseless and the gatherings became a competition among automobile owners to be judged on the appearance of their automobiles.
Organized on the last weekend of July, be part of our Misselwood Concours d’Elegance, an event of style, elegance and excellence featuring some of the best cars and motorcycles around.
