A premier car show is just one of the events that comprise the complete concours experience. Additional fundraising activities may include a vintage car tour, cocktail and dining affairs, auctions, seminars, and informal car show displays.
In Lexington, Ky, the Keeneland Concours d’Elegance conducted a car show preview at the downtown Courthouse Square on Friday evening, June 21st – four weeks in advance of the main concours weekend.
Known as the Maserati Mingle – sponsorship was provided by Maserati of Cincinnati – it featured a display of new exotic cars along with a few dozen of the classics entered in the concours. Admission was free to the public; there were hors d’oeuvres and refreshments available in a VIP tent for $50 donation. Proceeds from the Keeneland Concours benefit Kentucky Children’s Hospital.
The Keeneland Concours d’Elegance, featuring over 130 of the finest collector vehicles in the country, is Saturday, July 20, 2013.
