The ultimate car lover’s dream will transform downtown Danville on Saturday September 21st with the Danville Concours d’Elegance. This is the 10th annual free auto show put on to raise funds for Parkinson’s disease research and treatments, and has become one of the area’s most popular events. In the last decade, the Concours d’Elegance has raised over $2 million dollars toward Parkinson’s research and was recognized as the top fund raising team last year by the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Over 10,000 spectators are expected this year, so plan to get there early if you can. The show runs from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm in downtown Danville.
You can bring the whole family and see rare luxury and vintage cars such as a Ferrari 2050 short wheel base car and Cord autos. At noon, there will be a race car parade. As this is a charity fundraiser, donations are encouraged, but attendance is open and free to all. This is a unique difference to many concours auto events, which usually are held on high end golf courses and include an entrance fee. In addition to the free downtown car show, there are several events throughout the weekend being held to raise additional funds. There will be the Tour d’Elegance and the Thrill Ride, each of which will take participants from Lafayette to Livermore wine country. The Dinner d’Elegance will be held at the Blackhawk Museum in Danville. You can learn more about the event details and even enter to participate at the Concours d’Elegance website. The proceeds raised from these events will go to both the Michael J. Fox Foundation and Sunnyvale based Parkinson’s Institute and Clinical Center.
This annual event has been a successful fundraiser due in large part to the volunteers who put in the extra effort to bring these amazing and rare autos to our downtown streets. This has resulted in the Danville Concours d’Elegance remaining one of the few concours left in the state. No matter if you are selling or buying, you too can experience the extra effort put forth by the Ray Marquez.
