The La Jolla Concours d’Elegance & Motor Car Classic
April 22-24, 2022
The La Jolla Concours d’Elégance & Motor Car Classic is presented by the La Jolla Historical Society each spring and is among the top automotive events in the world, with entries from collectors in multiple competitive classes. This celebration of historic and contemporary automobiles and motorcycles is shared by visitors from throughout Southern California, as well as travelers from national and international destinations. The span of history from which these vehicles are drawn covers that of the automobile itself. The care and passion by which these classics are preserved celebrates the engineering and innovativeness by which they were built. The La Jolla Concours d’Elégance is recognition of the value of this history and of the competitor’s excellence in preservation. The event serves as a fundraiser for the Society, brings commerce to the community during a period off-season of the summer tourist trade, and attracts thousands of visitors to San Diego.
