From Old to Gold: The La Jolla Concours d’Elegance
Beauty, elegance, and vintage cars come close together for the annual La Jolla Concours d’Elegance, which happens each spring at La Jolla Cove. This spectacular show features one-of-a-kind automobile gems from all over the world, and every year avid car enthusiasts head to the coast for a display of classic, unique, and timeless automobiles — a showcase that’s been going strong for over a decade.
This year, three main events will be held April 22-24,2022 at La Jolla. From specialty craft cocktails to the more than 150 specialty restored automobiles, we can’t think of any reason not to attend this fantastic car show.
With origins in the late 17th century, the early Concours was a leisurely social affair where lighthearted competitions were rewarded with rosettes, wine, and champagne. As coaches and carriages segued into automobiles in the late 19th century, the competitions became more defined. By the mid 1920s, no society season on the French Riviera was complete without a variety of organized Concours events.
After World War II, a trio of visionaries — Jules Huemann, Reverend Paul Woudenberg and Loren Tryon — created what was to become the grandfather of all post-war Concours – Pebble Beach. What was a European staple for centuries has now become a true international tradition that pays homage to its French roots, and is a world-class event that La Jolla is proud to host each year.
General tickets for Concours d’Elegance range from $85 to $375, but children under 10 can enter for free — which makes it a great opportunity to bring your children and create some great family memories. With more than 150 classic cars ranging from vintage Rolls Royces to modern sports cars, it’s the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
