The Rodeo Drive Concours d’Elegance will return to Beverly Hills on Father’s Day, Sunday June 17, to celebrate 25 years of the popular tradition. The event — which remains free for spectators — will welcome more than 30,000 guests to Beverly Hills, offering dads and their families a chance to peruse a prestigious selection of vehicles —all while catching glimpses of Hollywood elite in the presence of the posh restaurants and designer stores that inhabit the city’s most famous street.
Commemorating the show’s 25thanniversary, a special class of silver cars will include some of the most exceptional automobiles in motoring history, each painted silver. Early entries in this class include coachbuilt beauties like the exceptionally rare 1953 Fiat 8V Supersonic by Ghia from the Sydorick collection (above, photo courtesy of the Rodeo Drive Concours d’Elegance), supercars like the 1994 Bugatti EB110 SS from the Mullin Automotive Museum and celebrity-owned vehicles like acclaimed director John Frankenheimer’s 1963 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III from the Petersen Automotive Museum.
“This year’s event will feature an unprecedented lineup of classic, exotic, luxury and supercars,” said Bruce Meyer, Chairman of the Rodeo Drive Concours d’Elegance. “As interest has grown over the last quarter-century, owners of world-class classic and sports cars have specifically chosen our Concours to display their prized vehicles. Our Father’s Day show will reflect the diverse interests of the thousands of families in attendance, displaying only the best from each class.”
From its beginnings at Beverly Hills High School to its emergence as a must-attend Father’s Day tradition, the Rodeo Drive Concours has become one of the most eagerly awaited annual events in Los Angeles. Considered a family tradition for many Angelinos, the show offers a unique experience for car lovers and their families who simply want to enjoy a summer day on one of the most iconic streets in the world.
“The Rodeo Drive Concours is a tradition that brings us all together to spend time with our loved ones, meet celebrities of the automotive world, and of course, admire the most amazing cars, right here in Beverly Hills,” said Beverly Hills Mayor Julian Gold. “I am delighted to be part of the 25thanniversary of the Concours, and I am honored to share it not only with my neighbors, but with the rest of Los Angeles and car lovers from around the world.”
Parking for the event is available at local parking garages and entry to the event is free. For more information please visit http://rodeodrive-bh.com/event/rodeo-drive-concours-d-elegance/
