The 10,000 Lakes Concours d’Elegance was held on the shores of Lake Minnetonka on the Excelsior Commons for seven wonderful years, thanks to the amazing owners of more than 125 historically significant and superbly conditioned automobiles from as early as the 1900s.

In French, a “concours d’elegance” means “competition of elegance” and the 10,000 Lakes Concours d’Elegance provided a chance for guests to spend a leisurely afternoon wandering the grounds, and meeting the owners of exquisite vehicles, discovering the intriguing stories behind each museum-quality vehicle.

The event’s festive atmosphere also featured live music, delicious foods, wines and beers from around the world, a gathering of local artists, merchandise vendors, a childrens play area and much more.

Proceeds from the 10,000 Lakes Concours d’Elegance events benefitted a local non-profit partner each year.
