The Fort Vancouver National Trust presents the 2015 Columbia River Concours d’Elégance, Sunday, August 2, 2015, along Officers Row on the grounds of historic Fort Vancouver in Vancouver, Washington. The venue is just across the river from Portland, Oregon, making the event easily accessible for automobile and motorcycle enthusiasts from around the state or around the country.
Over 150 classic cars and motorcycles restored to showroom polish will be on display on the grounds of Officers Row. More than a car show, the concours showcases vehicles whose historical accuracy is equally as important as their exceptional condition. Each represents a piece of history that owners have lovingly restored using skill, research, and exceptional dedication.
Awards for Best of Show and Class Winner in each of dozens of classes will be presented, along with several special awards such as Most Elegant and Best Presentation.
Vehicles may be entered in numerous classes representing virtually all the classic and collectable marques including famous names such as Jaguar, Bentley, Ferrari, Mercedes Benz, Alfa Romeo, Austin-Healey, MG, Porsche, Triumph, Cadillac, Corvette, Lincoln, Morgan, and a host of others. There are also classes for race cars and commercial vehicles, all of which means something for everyone with an interest in vintage and classic cars and motorcycles.
Hours of the event are 9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., Sunday, August 2, 2015. The award ceremony will begin at 2:00 p.m. Admission is $12 in advance and $15 on the day of the event. Children 12 and under are free.
