Our story

Our story

What began as The Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance in 1979 at Oakland University has since grown from a one-day show into an esteemed lifestyle event spanning the weekend. 


In 2011, it moved to the grounds of the Inn at St. John’s and, over the next 10 years, was known as the Concours d’Elegance of America. Throughout all that time, our passion for hosting an event that truly celebrates the automobile has remained steadfast, and each year we continue our commitment to showcasing classic, rare and magnificent vehicles.

The road ahead

In 2021, the Concours d’Elegance of America joined the growing lineup of immersive Hagerty automotive experiences. With years of expertise hosting car-centric events and a mission to fuel car culture, Hagerty is proud to continue this significant tradition. The Detroit Concours is a celebration of everything Motor City, curated to recognize the importance Detroit has in automotive history, while also honoring automotive greatness from around the world.
