Ironstone Vineyards

For 26 consecutive years the Ironstone Concours d’Elegance has been held on the 1100-acre estate of the Ironstone Vineyards Winery and Historic Museum in Murphys, California; in the heart of the famous 1849 California Gold Rush. The show features over 300 period-correct automobiles through 1973 including classic, vintage, antique and race cars, vintage trailers and commercial/military vehicles as well as agricultural engines and a display of modern exotic cars. Unique to Ironstone is the Pre-1920 race car rides on a dirt track, Amphicar rides in the lake and a race car engine start.

The 27th anniversary event held in 2023 will feature a new addition of speaker forums for both race cars and classic cars with industry leadership addressing the spectators.​​

Proceeds from the Ironstone Concours d’Elegance benefit Central and Northern California youth in agriculture, notably Future Farmers of America (FFA) and 4-H. In addition, the non-profit Ironstone Foundation has helped fund the California State FFA headquarters in Galt, California; scholarships in partnership with the California State Fair; and the Calaveras County Fair scholarship program. Over $1,000,000 has been donated since our first event.
