Celebrating its 13th year the weekend of Friday, April 7th through Sunday, April 9th, 2017, the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance will be returning to the stunning shores of La Jolla. Earning the reputation as one of the finest internationally renowned classic automobile showcases in the United States, the La Jolla Concours continues to attract discerning car enthusiasts from around the globe. La Jolla Concours d’Elegance is an incredible weekend of prestigious automotive events; it is also an opportunity to experience the chic allure of La Jolla’s Avenues, which exudes first class hospitality, magnificent boutiques and world-class cuisine. The 2017 La Jolla Concours d’Elegance will feature Packard as the honored marque.
