Pebble Beach Concours
Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance

Since the 1950s, Pebble Beach has been revered as the ultimate destination for auto enthusiasts. Over the years the event has grown from the just the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, to what is now called Monterey Car Week. It includes events all over Monterey County. From August 13-21, 2022, the best cars in the world take to streets, golf courses, parks, and even WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca to celebrate the event. Monterey Car Week features over 25 events including car shows, races, auctions, arts & lectures, manufacture displays, exhibitors, and concludes with the world-famous Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Save this article as your Guide to Monterey Car Week. Before we get to the legendary 18th fairway of Pebble Beach, let’s look at all the events that make up this week that most consider to be the world’s premier celebration of the automobile.

If you’re heading to Monterey Car Week this year remember that Monterey has a lot to offer in addition to all the car events. You can stop by Fisherman’s Wharf, visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium, watch the sunset from Del Monte Beach, and of course take some drives including going down Highway 1 through Big Sur and through 17-Mile Drive. Plus there are some unforgettable rounds of golf at 26 area courses that aren’t going to play themselves.

If you want to see everything that Monterey Car Week has to offer, expect to drive. A lot. Only a few of the venues are close together, so if you are joining us in Monterey and want to see the auctions, enjoy the manufacture displays, watch the cars on the Tour, and maybe catch dinner in Carmel, you’ll need a way to get around. Here’s an interactive map with the events and locations to help.

1700 17 Mile Dr
Pebble Beach, CA 93953

Tickets: FREE
Time: 5:30am
After a long week of taking in amazing machines at car shows, races, and auctions, waking up at 4 a.m. on the last day of Car Week can seem a bit crazy. After all, the same cars will still be there at noon, right? Trust us, Dawn Patrol is worth it, even if there weren’t free doughnuts. What started with Hagerty’s CEO McKeel Hagerty bringing a couple dozen donuts and some coffee to a small group of hardcore car nuts to watch the cars drive onto the lawn at Pebble Beach has grown. A lot. In addition to offering coffee and donuts, Dawn Patrol provides a perfect spot to see and hear each entrant drive onto the show field. Hagerty gives out something else at the event that is quite the attraction. Hats. Each year a limited number of Dawn Patrol hats are distributed to the first spectators on site, and those hats are now among the most coveted items of Concours memorabilia. In that brief moment when the hats are brought out, a baseball cap steals the spotlight from the Duesenbergs, Rolls-Royces, and Packards that will rule the rest of the day. Expect thousands of fans out in the cool morning breeze at the edge of the Pacific Ocean watching the world’s greatest automobiles arrive at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, while earning their hat as a badge of honor.
