Join the Fifth Annual Marin Sonoma Concours d'Elegance, as we return to a bygone era when Hollywood set the world's stage; men were men, women were glamorous and the cars they drove were as dazzling and exciting as the lives they led.
Hollywood kings and queens have long enjoyed a storied romance with the automobile: Elizabeth Taylor, Mae West, Jean Harlow, - their names evoke images of sophistication and allure that have yet to be duplicated by the stars of today.
We invite you to join us Sunday, May 19 to discover the cars that were as fast and seductive as the lives of the Hollywood legends that drove them. Set to appear on the Concours Green are a 1960 Rolls-Royce Cloud ll Drophead Coupe owned by Elizabeth Taylor, a 1934 Duesenberg J-370 owned by Mae West and the car Steve McQueen bought and raced to numerous victories, a 1961 Cooper T56 Mark ll Formula Junior.
Also on display will be Jean Harlow’s 1932 Packard 903 Sport Phaeton and Gloria DeHaven’s 1953 Muntz Jet of which fewer than 400 were built between 1951 and 1954, many of which were purchased by celebrities.
Once you've toured the legendary, be inspired to dream of the future with modern "bespoke" automobiles from avant-garde artist Steve Moal, whose designs will challenge the way you think about automobile form and function.

Lyle Lovett will make a big impression when his Large Band joins him for the very first time at the Marin Center!
Lyle Lovett & His Large Band deliver perfection – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Lovett and his band stir the congregation – The Boston Globe
A magical experience….indelible highs and pockets of pure beauty – DFW.com
A master of many musical styles…drawing great musical power from the strength of the musicians backing him – KDHX.org
There are songwriters, there are musicians and there are entertainers. Few people can pull off all three with refinement, humility and charm. Lyle Lovett is one of them. Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Lovett has appeared in 13 feature films, and on stage and television. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was recently named the Texas State Musician.
For the first time in Marin County, Lovett is backed by an all-star cast, starting with his rhythm section, which belongs in some hall of fame. There’s rarely any other outcome when Lovett convenes his Large Band. The 14 players are all virtuosos in their own right, but always serve the greater good of the song and the communal spirit of a live performance.
