The fifth annual 10,000 Lakes Concours d’Elegance will be held Sunday July 30, 2017 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. along the shores of Lake Minnetonka in historic Excelsior, Minn. This exceptional show will feature more than 180 historic, superbly-conditioned automobiles, watercraft and motorcycles. This year’s event will benefit Bridging.

Concours d’Elegance is French for “competition of elegance.” Automobile, watercraft and motorcycle owners were required to apply in advance noting the historical significance of their vehicle. Each had to meet set criteria in order to participate. A panel of experienced vehicle aficionados will judge the participants with awards distributed in the afternoon. The public is also welcome to vote for the “People’s Choice” award.

A variety of artists and entertainers will perform throughout the day, including the Minnesota SkyVault Theater Company from 11 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. The Rochester-based troupe specializes in improvisation, music, and audience participation.

Tickets are $25 at the gate. Presale tickets are $20 and available at 10000lakesconcours.com. Free admission for kids 12 and under as well as military personnel with current ID. Beer and wine will be sold throughout the day along with delectable lunch fare.

A free shuttle service will be provided from Minnetonka High School and street parking available.

Proceeds from the 5th Annual Concours d’Elegance will benefit Bridging. Bridging is a nonprofit organization serving the greater Twin Cities that provides donated furniture and household goods to families and individuals transitioning out of homelessness and poverty. For more information, visit
