The Sunday in the Park Concours and Gathering of the Marques is on the Sunday – this year, September 3 – between the two racing days of each year's Labor Day weekend Historic Festival. No other event in the U.S. combines a first-class concours d’elegance with quality vintage competition on the same property, all on the same weekend. Sunday in the Park is comprised of two features; nearly 300 outstanding entries are on display on the Sam Posey Straight in the Concours d’ Elegance, with an additional 800+ cars celebrating the event around the rest of the 1.5 mile track in the Gathering of the Marques enthusiast meet.

The 2017 Concours will be a superlative show of beauty, elegance and speed, with interesting and diverse classes, in a perfect ambiance. Sunday in the Park’s class titles convey our whimsical, unfussy approach. The cars are grouped by purpose and/or year, not exclusively by make and model.


Some notes on the Sunday in the Park judging process:

We employ traditional Concours d' Elegance judging principals. It is the style, rarity, presentation and unique qualities of the car that count most. We encourage vehicles to be presented in as close to original configuration as possible.

With this premise, our judges are not there to confirm itemized originality. They will ask to look ''under and in'' only when they feel it is necessary. Our judges have the expertise to make sound evaluations, then good decisions, in about five minutes. Hoods should not be opened unless asked. Displays or "automobilia" of interest and other items specific to your vehicle are encouraged.

Finally, mechanical condition counts and from time to time we may ask you to ''start-up,'' listening for that distinctive audio track your car makes.
