Dress Code

Like many Concours around the country, the dress code for our Sunday Concours d’Elegance event is casual, but dressier if you like. While you will see a wide range of attire from shorts and blue jeans to suits and ties, we always encourage summer “Garden Party” attire, such as hats and dresses for women; linen or khaki slacks and seersucker blazers for men. Where else can you dress like it’s the 1920s again, so have fun and come dressed for the experience! But if dressing up is not your thing, come anyway and enjoy the cars. We guarantee no one will feel out of place, as you’ll see spectators dressed in all different types of attire.
