Premier classic and antique automobile and motorcycle show moved to 2021

This year’s Dayton Concours d’Elegance, scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 20 along with the Preview Party held the evening before, has been canceled.

“The health and well-being of our guests and the car community is our primary concern at Carillon Historical Park. We look forward to resuming the Midwest’s premier classic and antique automobile and motorcycle show in 2021!” Dayton History officials said.

“We have been watching the numbers since March and paying close attention to the information coming from local, state and health officials, and have come to the determination that it is not in the best interests of anyone to host our 14th Dayton Concours on Sept. 20, 2020,” said Concours Chairman Skip Peterson.

“We have been making plans and contingencies, but in the end, it’s just not a good idea. We want to thank all of our previous entrants, guests and sponsors for their support over the past 13 years and we look forward to welcoming them back to the Concours on Sunday, Sept. 19, 2021” says Peterson.

The funds raised with this special event help Dayton History and Carillon Historical Park share the Dayton region’s unique stories and preserve more than 45 historic buildings and 3 million community artifacts.
