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.
