About the Greystone Concours d’Elegance
The inaugural Greystone Mansion Concours d’Elegance will be held on Sunday, April 11, 2010 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the historic former home of the Doheny family, a renowned 55-room estate and 18-acre park overlooking Los Angeles. There will be nine unique judging categories for participants and more than 100 classic automobiles and motorcycles will be on public display, including Fred Astaire’s 1927 Rolls-Royce and Rita Hayworth’s 1953 Cadillac on loan from the Petersen Automotive Museum.
Free parking and shuttle services will be available at the City’s Beverly Canon Gardens parking structure at 241 N. Canon Drive. Tickets cost $100 a piece, which covers admission to the Concours, viewing of the vintage fashion show, an estate tour, entertainment, food and beverage, with a portion of the proceeds going to Friends of Greystone. Each ticket also acts as a future two-for-one admission to the Petersen Automotive Museum.
