Greenwich Concours d’Elegance

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. – The Greenwich Concours d’Elegance, an annual enthusiast motoring event, features a meticulously curated selection of vehicles, embodying the pinnacle of automotive design and engineering from May 31st to June 2nd in Greenwich, Connecticut. Showcasing rare classics, iconic sports cars, attendees are invited to enjoy an elegant and immersive experience celebrating automotive history.

Known for his modernist masterpieces, contemporary architect, professor and car enthusiast Steven Harris will be celebrated as Grand Marshal of the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance. Harris is a Professor at Yale School of Architecture, where he’s taught for 25 years, and previously served as a professor at Harvard and Princeton. As founding partner of Steven Harris Architects, he has led an extensive range of residential, industrial and commercial projects in the US and abroad, including luxury design for Barney’s and Dolce and Gabbana. Harris is known for his obsession with Porsches, particularly Four Cam 356 Carreras and 911 RS’s. Recently, his 911 RS’s took the spotlight at Lime Rock Park, further solidifying his legacy in both architecture and automotive circles.

“It is truly an honor to be chosen as Grand Marshal of the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance, which brings my passion for design and automobiles together in one place,” said Steven Harris. “This event is a testament to the timeless appeal of automotive craftsmanship, particularly in the Northeast region, and I look forward to celebrating alongside fellow enthusiasts. I’ve been attending the Concours for 10 years and return each year for the world-class lineup of cars and friendly atmosphere.”

Festivities commence with a scenic tour through the best roads of the region. The tour, spanning four hours, includes a gourmet lunch stop and a visit to a distinguished private car collection, beginning at a historic Greenwich landmark and traversing Connecticut’s scenic backroads.

In addition to the captivating vehicle displays, the event offers enriching seminars with the latest developments and trends shaping the automotive industry, exciting driving opportunities, and access to industry leaders and legends.
