Where is the La Jolla Concours Held?

The 2021 Concours already happened, but there’s still an event this year: “La Jolla Motor Car Classic 2021 at Viejas Casino & Resort.” That’s right–instead of being held in La Jolla, it will be held at Viejas. There will also be an inaugural La Jolla Concours Golf Tournament at a private country club in La Jolla on October 4th.

The 2022 La Jolla Concours, which will be held in the spring, will be on the La Jolla Cove lawn, right there with the sweeping backdrop of the Pacific Ocean. Additionally, all of the net proceeds of the 2022 Concours will go to benefit The La Jolla Historical Society.

 

History & Background

The La Jolla Concours D’Elegance has origins tracing back to the 17th century. During that time, the concours was a luxurious, leisurely event centered around coaches, couture and cocktails.

In many ways, little has changed since, though overtime the event adjusted and morphed into the post-World War II event Loren Tryon held in 1950 at Pebble Beach. This in turn inspired the car-loving, automotive-centered event La Jolla now hosts today.

Is the 2021 La Jolla Concours Over?

Unfortunately, the La Jolla Concours that was scheduled for April of 2021 was canceled. However, there will still be an opportunity this year to check out some amazing cars! There is still the Motor Car Classic event that will be held at Viejas Casino and Resort. This event is presented by La Jolla Concours D’Elegance, and offers a weekend of luxury in between auto show events.

What to Expect at the 2022 La Jolla Concours

There is far more to do than simply look at cars at La Jolla’s Concours d’Elegance. From cocktail receptions to decadent lunches, there’s something different happening each day.

Friday Night, April 22, 2022 – Concours Social Club:

The event launches with a cocktail party. Ticket holders will enter this exclusive gathering and be greeted by supreme appetizers, cocktails, wine and, of course, entertainment. It’s the perfect way to begin this deluxe event, and there will be plenty of “high end design and modern creativity” to allow you to take great Instagram photos.

Saturday Night, April 23, 2022 – Le Cabaret Du Concours:

The Saturday Night VIP Reception will be held on the lawn of Ellen Browning Scripps Park. This vent includes a hosted bar, a silent auction, entertainment, and food from local restaurants.

Sunday, April 24, 2022: La Jolla Concours:

While the previous two nights are VIP events, Sunday is the day for general admission ticket holders (with plenty of special amenities for VIP ticket holders). 

General admission ticket holders will get to check out over 150 different vehicles on the La Jolla Cove lawn. (If you haven’t watched our drone footage of the La Jolla Cove, you should go watch it right now!) In addition to the automobile show, there will be live music and a Champagne and Honey Tasting Garden. The general admission event is from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

VIP ticket holders, depending on the tier of tickets they buy, will enjoy amenities ranging from skipping the line to food, adult beverages, a commemorative program, and more. The VIP event is from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. as well, and the hosted bar in the VIP lounge will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

As with any event, this information is subject to change. Please be sure to check with the event before making definitive arrangements!

Parking During La Jolla Concours D’Elegance: Good to Know
