For the past 25 years, the very best automobiles and motorcycles have descended upon Roger Sherman Baldwin Park every summer for the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance. It has been the cream of the crop of automotive events in the Northeast since its inception in 1996. Unfortunately, the event was cancelled due to the pandemic but is scheduled to return in 2021 with a new owner and format.
New Owner & new Format
In late 2019, it was announced that long time sponsor, Hagerty, had purchased the event. For 2021, the Grand Tour will take place on Saturday and a single day Concours car show will take place on Sunday. Traditionally, the Greenwich Concours was broken up into two days with the American vehicles being shown on Saturday and International vehicles being shown on Sunday. Past events were always scheduled for the first weekend in June but have been moved to the fourth weekend of October this year. It is unknown if these changes are due to pandemic related restrictions or will become permanent.
25 Years of Excellence
This show has always been the place to see super rare and extremely expensive vehicles in a beautiful park overlooking the harbor. Hopefully all of these changes don’t take away from what has made the Greenwich Concours so special for the last 25 years.
Longtime Greenwich residents Bruce and Genia Wennerstrom founded the Greenwich Concours in 1996. Their passion to share world-class automobiles, coupled with the heritage and community involvement of Greenwich, was the perfect foundation to build on what is now considered one of the top five concours’ in the world.
Located just 30 miles from the heart of New York City and overlooking the Long Island Sound, the Greenwich Concours’ backdrop is the beautiful Greenwich Harbor. It is mere steps from the acclaimed Delamar Hotel and notable restaurants and boutique shops on Greenwich Avenue.
In keeping with truly historic tradition, the Concours d’Elegance is a time for car lovers to celebrate the most prestigious and artfully designed automobiles vying for top honors in various classes.
