Marin Sonoma Concours d’Elegance

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. Craving more nostalgia? Visit our wood car and station wagon display and relive memories of your carefree youth - days spent at the beach, surfboard in hand. Add to the mix vintage Italian motorcycles, fine food, wine and fashion, and enjoy a lifetime of experiences in one, singular day.
