Ability Connection Colorado’s Annual Colorado Concours d’Elegance & Exotic Sports Car Show is almost here.  The Colorado Concours is an annual event showcasing nearly 500 rare sports and classic cars, early collectibles and the latest exotics provided by local and regional car clubs.  Many of these cars venture out only once a year to help at-risk Colorado children.  These prestigious beauties are treasures that few people ever get to experience.

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.
