The Colorado Concours d’Elegance & Exotic Sports Car Show is large-scale, highly-visible and well attended. Local and regional car clubs showcase 400+ rare cars from early collectibles to the latest exotics. Many venture out once a year, for this show only, to help kids. These prestigious beauties are treasures that few people ever get to experience.
START YOUR ENGINES. THE CROWDS ARE COMING.
More than 10,000 spectators, car owners, sponsors and vendors turn out for a family-oriented day with live music, food, exhibits and special awards.
WHEN THEY ARRIVE, THE KIDS WIN.
Proceeds from this spectacular event go Ability Connection Colorado’s Creative Options for Early Childhood Education Centers. At five centers throughout Aurora and Denver, brighter futures are beginning. Over 400 children of all abilities and economic circumstances receive developmental screening and assessment services, individualized mental health services and comprehensive educational experiences each year. These services often result in the discovery of potential delays and the opportunity to receive critical early intervention.
AS A RESULT, THE OUTCOMES ARE AMAZING! OUR COMMUNITY’S FUTURE IS BRIGHTER BECAUSE CHILDREN WHO RECEIVE A HIGH-QUALITY EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION HAVE A GREATER CHANCE OF GRADUATING FROM HIGH SCHOOL, ATTENDING COLLEGE AND HAVE BETTER HEALTH LATER IN LIFE.

History of the Colorado Concours d’Elegance & Exotic Sports Car Show
This event was the brain child of two Rocky Mountain Region Porsche Club of America members; Tom Scott and Stim Kennedy. In 1983, these individuals presented the idea for a car show to the Board of Directors of RMR with the idea of making the event a fundraiser for a deserving local charity. In the first two years, 1984 and 1985, the show was part of the “Carousel Days”, a benefit for The Marvin Davis Children’s Diabetes Foundation, and was held in the Cherry Creek Shopping Center parking lot. There were approximately 30 cars on display and the contribution for the charity was about $1,200. In 1986, the charity was changed to Cerebral Palsy of Colorado (name changed to Ability Connection Colorado in 2013) Children’s Program when the Davis Family moved to California. The event was then moved to the University Hills Shopping Center and was there for four or five years. In 1993, the show was moved to the present location, Arapahoe Community College. Now in its 36th year, Colorado Concours has raised over $2M for the Creative Options for Early Childhood Education Program at Ability Connection Colorado.
