Concours d'Elegance

Jaguars on the green

When: generally the first weekend in August
Where: Seattle area (location announced in spring)
Who to contact for questions:

A Concours d’Élégance (from the French meaning a competition of elegance referring to the gathering of prestigious cars) is a gathering of automobiles in specifically defined classes and divisions strictly judged on their appearance, authenticity and condition.


Under the rules of Jaguar Clubs of North America, vehicles are judged in either “Champion Division” or “Driven Division”. In the latter, the engine compartment and boot (trunk) of the cars are not judged and rules regarding authenticity are not quite as strict as they are for “Champion Division” cars. In both the Championship and the Driven division, the owner’s preparation of the car is important – anything that is seen must be clean and, ideally, in a condition as close to new as possible, and if the owner chooses to participate in other JCNA Concours events elsewhere, the scores obtained will make the car eligible for Regional or North American awards. JDRC cars have a history of both Regional and North American championships.


This is a stress-free, fun day at the park in the company of other Jaguar enthusiasts and you have the opportunity of doing what Jaguar owners like to do: talk about their pride and joy! Every Jaguar is beautiful, and every Jaguar wants to be in the company of others.
