Celebrating car culture in the heart of the Motor City

Friday, September 22 and Saturday, September 23, 2023
at the Detroit Institute of Arts

World-class vehicles, nonstop fun

Thanks to our 2023 honorees

The Detroit Concours is a celebration of the Motor City and the automotive culture that defines it. That’s why, for 2023, we’re proud to honor the people who put the world on wheels: Detroit’s automotive industry employees across all time. Our celebration features an unveiling of custom artwork made up of photos submitted from those in the industry, and a special Concours d’Elegance class, Powered by Detroit, that showcases manufacturer-owned heritage vehicles.

Plus, this year’s event also welcomes Ed Welburn, a 44-year veteran of General Motors’ design team, as Chief Judge.

The People Who Put the World on Wheels

The People Who Put the World on Wheels

This year, the Detroit Concours d’Elegance honors the people who have built Detroit’s automotive industry bolt by bolt. From 1900 to today, these are the workers who have gotten their hands dirty and put their sweat into making the cars we love. They’re the engine of car culture. They’re truly the spirit of Detroit. We couldn’t be prouder to celebrate Detroit’s auto industry workers and their passion, ingenuity and grit at this year’s Concours d’Elegance.

This year, the Detroit Concours is going big in honoring Detroit auto workers across time. We’re celebrating the line workers, the welders, the electricians, the test drivers and so many more. Help us say thanks for putting the world on wheels.
