Kirkland Concours d'Èlégance
Among car enthusiasts this family oriented event has quickly become recognized as one of the premier concours events in the country with participant vehicles selected from across the United States and Canada. All profits from this spectacular event benefit uncompensated children's care at Seattle Children's Hospital and the new LeMay America’s Car Museum. In the first 9 years of the event approximately 1.5 million dollars was donated to Seattle Children’s and Evergreen Hospitals to these needy recipients.

As it celebrates its 10th anniversary, the Kirkland Concours d’Elegance moves to the beautiful new LeMay – America’s Car Museum (ACM) in Tacoma. Featuring a nine-acre campus – with a four-story museum as the centerpiece – ACM, in the shadow of Mt. Rainier 30 minutes south of Seattle, will be one of the world’s largest auto museums and attractions when it opens in June 2012.

This esteemed 'contest of elegance' is judged by national and international experts. One award is judged and presented by thirteen Junior Judges, a group of 6th through 9th graders from various Lake Washington School District and other schools. These Junior Judges also gain an understanding and appreciation for automotive history, the restoration process, and the mechanics of a non-profit event. Nearly three hundred volunteers, most of whom return each year, make this event possible.
