Every year in mid-August, classic car enthusiasts gather in Monterey, Pebble Beach and Carmel for a series of automobile events including the most prestigious Concours d’Elegance. The annual classic, sports, and collectors car extravaganza on the Monterey Peninsula in California in mid-August has many names but Monterey Classic Car Week sums it up perfectly, even if the name is not official.

The week includes a range of events, all organized individually, including the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, historic car races, gatherings of German and Italian automobiles, and several major collector cars auctions. The Pebble Beach (Gooding & Co), Monterey (RM Auctions) and Quail Lodge (Bonhams) sales usually see the highest prices paid for classic cars each year. Various event organizers often seem oblivious of the existence of other nearby events.

Some of the major events in the Monterey Classic Car Week include: Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Quail Lodge’s Motorsports Gathering, Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, Legends of the Autobahn, Concorso Italiano and the Concours d’LeMons for the ugliest cars and “worst in show”. Of the classic car auctions scheduled during the Monterey Classic Car Week, the most prestigious ones do charge an admission to see the cars and the auctions but visitors can often see the cars before, during, and after the auction in the relevant hotel parking lots. Admission to some auctions is free and many include beautiful cars even if they are not in the million dollar leagues.
