The Concours is an outdoor event that takes place at one of America’s most beautiful locales, the famed eighteenth fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links. Attire should be comfortable and convenient for walking and picnicking. Styles range from dressy to resort casual. Temperatures are often cool in the morning and evening, and warm during the day, so layering is recommended.
Your event ticket must also be visible at all times. A lanyard will be provided to you for this purpose on the day of the event.
To fully enjoy your day at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, you might want to bring these items: comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, a sweater or jacket, handy wipes, a camera, and a blanket for picnicking.
Sandwiches, salads, and beverages are all available at concession stands on the event show field. The Pebble Beach Market, located near The Lodge at Pebble Beach conference center, also has a wonderful selection of take-out deli items. Two restaurants — the Tap Room and the Gallery Restaurant — are located on the grounds and are open to the public, but seating is limited and is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is the centerpiece of the Pebble Beach Automotive Weekend, but there are many related events and activities, including the Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance, Pebble Beach RetroAuto, and the Pebble Beach Auction presented by Gooding & Company.
Pebble Beach Automotive Week offers a banquet of events for automobile enthusiasts and connoisseurs of culture. In 2013, Pebble Beach Automotive Week begins on Wednesday, August 14, with the opening of exhibits like the arrival of participants on the Motoring Classic. The Pebble Beach Tour d'Elegance presented by Rolex and the Concours Kickoff Party take place on Thursday, August 15, and Pebble Beach RetroAuto opens on Friday, August 16. The Pebble Beach Auction presented by Gooding & Company occurs on Saturday and Sunday, August 17 & 18. And the 63rd annual Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is on Sunday, August 18.
