Hagerty to host Detroit Concours d’Elegance in the heart of the Motor City
Known around the globe as the city that put the world on wheels, Detroit offers a rich, automotive culture unlike any place in the world. There’s the Dream Cruise, the legendary Woodward Avenue, and the Ford Piquette Avenue plant, the birthplace of the Model T. Hagerty is proud to join these automotive icons with the debut of the inaugural Detroit Concours d’Elegance.
Building upon the Concours d’Elegance of America’s four decades of excellence, the reimagined event finds its new home at the Detroit Institute of Arts in the very heart of the Motor City. Its heritage can be traced directly back to the Meadow Brook Hall Concours and Concours of America events held beginning in 1979.
“We’re incredibly excited about the event’s new home in downtown Detroit. Being at the Detroit Institute of Arts puts car lovers right in the middle of the thriving design, music, and sporting culture of the Motor City,” says McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty. “Concours weekends are about championing the fact that all cars are cool and some of them are just jewels that need to be celebrated. This event will honor the tradition of the concours, but also bring in new elements to provide on-ramps for future car lovers and families.”
The Detroit Concours d’Elegance is an all-new, weekend-long tribute to the people who designed, built, and drove American car culture, and to the vehicles at its heart. There will be events throughout the city, ride and drive opportunities, and engaging seminars as well as Saturday’s Cars & Community and Sunday’s Concours d’Elegance.
The dates for the Detroit Concours will be September 16 through 18, 2022. Learn more about the Detroit Concours d’Elegance, including new experiences as they’re announced, by visiting DetroitConcours.com.
