Keeneland Concours d’Elegance 2022

If you would enjoy attending a concours event with a friendly Southern Hospitality bent, plan to come to the 2022 Keeneland Concours d’Elegance at Lexington, Kentucky.  We will be holding this nineteenth annual event on Saturday, July 16, 2022.  The Feature Marque, for the first time since the inaugural event in 2004 will be Porsche.  Of the twenty classes of juried entrants, four will be devoted to Porsche.  In addition to the regular Car Club Parking in the Paddock, the PCA Bluegrass Region will be hosting a PCA Hospitality Park.
