Taking place on the expansive grounds of the Inn at St. John's, a former seminary, the 35th annual Concours d'Elegance of America gives guests an up-close look at some of the finest rare and collectible vehicles in the world, ranging from vintage mopeds to classic Indy cars. Featured in 2013 will be the Porsche 911, vintage NASCAR racers and storied Indianapolis badges like Duesenberg, Marmon and Stutz, alongside other highly-prized rides.

Differing from the original model of the Concours d'Elegance, which combined high-end automobiles with couture fashion, the Concours d'Elegance of America features a number of unique events over the course of the weekend, including seminars, a motoring tour of the scenic Plymouth countryside and a vintage car auction. Of course, the main draw of the weekend is still the Concours itself, which takes place at the Inn at St. John's on Sunday from 10am-4pm. General admission tickets cost $25 and include free parking, shuttle service, and program book.
