Returning to the shores of La Jolla, the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance celebrates its 17th year of automotive excellence Friday April 21, Saturday April 22, and Sunday April 23. Earning a reputation as one of the finest internationally renowned classic automobile showcases in the US, the La Jolla Concours continues to attract discerning car enthusiasts from around the globe for a weekend of prestigious events.  Online registration is now open for participants to submit their automobile for consideration to contend across thirteen categories for prestigious titles and automotive infamy in 2023. In 2023, the LJCDE Committee is pleased to announce that the infamous Friday Evening VIP Party returns to The Lawn at Ellen Browning Scripps Park!   The honored marque in 2023 has been awarded to Duesenberg – a marque automotive historians over the years have deemed a synonym for scientific pioneering. Duesenberg is rightly considered one of America's, and the world's, most remarkable automotive marques. Duesenbergs, at their root, were technologically savvy automobiles that dominated the racetracks of the era. Duesnberg-powered cars stacked wins at American races and the French Grand Prix, garnering a reputation for quality long before the automobiles would hit the civilian market. Several movie stars, including Gary Cooper, bought Duesenbergs during this time, cementing an even deeper association between the automobile, luxury, exclusivity, and prestige. This association between luxury and prestige with the Duesenberg brand persists to this day, and it is one of the greatest contributing factors in their valuation on today's collector’s market.   WEEKEND EVENTS FRIDAY, APRIL 21, 2023 Explore La Jolla and enjoy the wide range of restaurants, art galleries, and attractions offering La Jolla Concours d’Elegance specials before our signature evening soiree.   La Jolla Concours d’Elegance VIP Party | 6PM-10PM | Ellen Scripps Browning Park We are excited to announce the return of the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance weekend kickoff party in the park on Friday April 21, 2023 from 6pm-10pm.
