The Event

Since 1950, Pebble Beach has been host to what is quite simply the finest exhibition of show cars in the world. The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance - held each August on the 18th Fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links - is an annual gathering of rare and antique automobiles, international automotive luminaries and motorcar enthusiasts from around the globe. It is an event of dazzling elegance, appropriately held at a resort famous for both its beauty and its refinement. Originally a small social event paired with a road race through the pine and cypress forests of Pebble Beach, this event has grown into the top ranking collector car competition in the world. The Concours is not a contest of speed, but of elegance. Automobiles are judged for their historical accuracy, their technical merit and their style - and the best garner reward and recognition.
