April 12, 2017
2017 Event at Ault Park Celebrates 40 Years of Automotive Excellence
CINCINNATI, OH –April 12, 2017 The Cincinnati Concours d’Elegance, formerly known as the Ault Park Concours d’Elegance celebrates its 40th show with the 2017 event, to be held June 11, 2017 at Cincinnati’s historic Ault Park. Sunday’s car show will be preceded by a number of other events throughout the weekend. The show’s special displays include 50 years of Camaro and Firebird, Tuner cars: custom tuners and factory-backed tuners as well as thirteen regular classes of classic, vintage and exotic vehicles, and motorcycles.
“Marking the 40th year of our Concours, we felt this was the time to update our event name to be more geographically inclusive”, said Rich Frantz, President of The Cincinnati Concours Foundation, the non-profit organization that runs the annual car show and weekend of events. “We surveyed the domestic and international concours landscape and with the vast majority of concours events being named for the city where they occur, we believe following suit will aid in our continued elevation of the stature of the event”, Frantz continued.
