As in the past, this year’s event will take place at the beautiful La Jolla Cove, Ellen Browning Scripps Park, 1133 Coast Blvd., La Jolla. If your vehicle is accepted for display “on the grass” the venue offers a spectacular view of the ocean in addition to one of the best collection of gorgeous vintage vehicles on the West Coast. See below for some examples from a prior show.
Saturday evening between 5 and 9 p.m. the Aston Martin San Diego Le Cabaret du Concours presented by Fraser and Raphael’s EventWorks will be held at Scripps Park.
Outrageously glamourous and glittering in frivolity and fun, Le Cabaret du Concours excites a Parisian spectacular along the shores of the Pacific Ocean. Bedecked with plush sofas, velvet curtains and dazzling chandeliers, you have stumbled upon a masterful mélange of decadence without restraint.
Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. is the main event—a Concours d’Elegance featuring 130 spectacular cars! Look for some familiar favorites or you just may see something you have never seen before. For more information and to purchase tickets visit https://www.lajollaconcours.com/tickets/ .
