Organizers will again restrict entries with the “Skip a Year” rule to keep the content new and exciting for spectators. Any vehicle that was entered in the Concours d’Elegance in 2018 is ineligible for 2019; it will be eligible again in 2020. Organizers encourage you to enter another vehicle from your collection if at all possible.
Participation in the Concours d’Elegance is based on acceptance, while Gathering of the Marques simply requires an admission ticket. Preferential consideration for acceptance by the Concours d’Elegance Committee will be given to applications submitted before the closing date of July 31, 2019.
