Ironstone Concours d’Elegance
The Ironstone Concours d’Elegance weekend begins with a Friday evening Cars & Stars wine tasting, dinner and auction. The concours itself takes place on Saturday, climaxed by an awards ceremony. Class winners drive onto the Ironstone Amphitheatre stage to receive their trophies. Among regular participants are Reno’s National Auto Museum, the California Automotive Museum in Sacramento, the Blackhawk Museum in Dublin and San Francisco’s Academy of Art University auto collection.
The Ironstone Concours d’Elegance is an antique and classic car show that takes place each year at the Ironstone Vineyards, just outside Murphys CA. Some 300+ antique and classic cars participate in the Ironstone Concours d’Elegance. This classic car and automobile show also features vintage trailers, motorcycles and wooden boats.
Honored vehicle marques vary but this year include BMW, Corvette, Studebaker, Packard, Duesenberg, Pierce-Arrow, Bentley and Rolls-Royce. Special classes spotlight early Fords, streamlined cars, sports cars, exotics, race cars, coachbuilt luxury marques, plus unrestored and original automobiles.
Proceeds from the Ironstone Concours d’Elegance benefit Central and Northern California youth in agriculture, notably FFA and 4-H. Additionally, the non-profit Ironstone Foundation has helped fund the California State FFA headquarters in Galt, scholarships in partnership with the California State Fair, and the Calaveras County Fair Scholarship program.
