SUNDAY IN THE PARK CONCOURS D'ELEGANCE:
The Sunday in the Park Concours and Gathering of the Marques is on the Sunday – this year, September 1, 2019 – 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 200 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 2019 Sunday in the Park 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.
 

CONCOURS & GATHERING OF THE MARQUES CLASSES 
 

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.
  • Judges will ask to look ''under and in'' only when they feel it is necessary.
  • 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.
  • Mechanical condition counts and from time to time, Judges may ask you to ''start-up,'' listening for that distinctive audio track your car makes.

Applications for the 2019 Sunday in the Park Concours are closed.   If you have questions, please contact Frank Taylor  

SUNDAY IN THE PARK GATHERING OF THE MARQUES:
Gathering of the Marques is incredibly diverse; literally hundreds of cars lining the track, grouped by make, model or country of origin. We invite you to bring your Shelby, BMW, Corvette, Jaguars, MGs...Aston, Rolls or Loti..., Porsch, Peugeot or Pantera..., Volvo or Saab, Mini, Mercury, Mercede or Mopar, Fiat or Lambo. If it's an interesting and fun car, bring it out to Lime Rock Park to be showcased next to its brethren.
