The 7th annual 10,000 Lakes Concours d’Elegance is returning to Excelsior on Sunday, July 28, with what will be the largest show yet. This one-of-a-kind event will feature more than 200 rare, historic, and superbly-conditioned vehicles from as early as the 1900s, displayed along the shores of Lake Minnetonka.
Translated to “competition of elegance” in French, the 10,000 Lakes Concours d’Elegance will feature cars, boats, and motorcycles from around the U.S. to be judged at Minnesota’s only Concours. Attendees can enjoy discovering the stories behind each museum-quality vehicle and talking to the owners. There will also be live music, cuisine by local food trucks, beer, wine, and Bloody Marys. Local artists and vendors will be onsite.
Guests will have the opportunity to cruise Lake Minnetonka in a vintage watercraft for $20, with a portion of each ride benefitting the charitable partner of the event, Bridging.
Bridging is a nonprofit that serves the greater Twin Cities by providing donated furniture and household goods to families and individuals transitioning out of homelessness and poverty.
Tickets are $25 per person and only 4,000 tickets will be sold. Children 12 and under and active/retired military members receive free admission. Skip the lines by purchasing tickets online in advance.
