Palo Alto Concours d’Elegance Highlights Cadillac and Ferrari

  • Paul Meyers

In its 47th year, the Palo Alto Concours d’Elegance (held this time on June 30) is known for its lineup of some of the world’s best cars, from prewar classics to modern exotic models. This year’s featured marquees won’t disappoint: Cadillac is highlighted in the American sector, with a presentation from before the World Wars to 1976, and Ferrari is the European featured brand, showing cars spanning every decade.  

The event is moving to the San Mateo Event Center in San Mateo, Calif.—some 15 miles north of Palo Alto. It kicks off with a $100-per-seat charity dinner on Friday, June 28, with a silent auction; a Saturday drive leads up to the main event on Sunday. Those interested in attending can reserve $100 all-inclusive Concours VIP tickets or $25 advance-admission tickets for the day of the concours. (650.813.1100, www.paconcours.com)
