Keeneland Concours d'Elegance

Each year in July, the Keeneland Concours d'Elegance hosts one of the finest collector automobile shows in the region.  The event takes place on the beautiful grounds of Lexington's famous Keeneland Race Track, which serves as the perfect setting to showcase these fantastic vehicles. 

The event features over 130 exceptional vehicles ranging from the earliest of models to future classics.  Adding to the fun of studying the changes in vehicular design over the decades, several of the car owners dress in period style to match their car.  In addition to classic cars, the event also hosts an assortment of vintage motorcycles, classic military vehicles, and even a few vintage award winning speed boats! Several car clubs in the area gather in the car club paddock, offering visitors further opportunity to see their favorite makes and models. 

If you're in need of an indoor break while looking around, be sure to try your chance at the silent auction located in the Keeneland Entertainment Center, with proceeds benefiting Kentucky Children's Hospital.

Whether you're a sports car fanatic or you prefer fifties fins, it is a great way to enjoy a summer afternoon with friends!

The 2012 Concours d'Elegance will take place on July 21, from 9:00am-4:30pm. 

Admission: $15 per person, children under age 12 are free, Active Military in uniform are free.
