The Concours is an exhibition of vintage and classic motor vehicles and will have five categories: German, American, Other Countries, Custom/Modified/Hot Rod, and Motorcycles. All vehicles will be eligible for the “People’s Choice” award.

The Concours is a charitable event with this years’ net proceeds going to Hospice of San Juan, the San Juan Island Family Resource Center, and Rotary’s PolioPlus Project. Spectators are welcome with open general admission although a voluntary tax-deductible contribution of $10.00 is encouraged.

The Argyle Street Jazz Band will play from 12 noon to 2 p.m. and lunch and beverages are available for purchase in the pavilion. It is great fun for all and benefits valuable programs in our community.

Island artist Ary Hobbel has created an original oil portrait for this year’s poster depicting a Porsche 928, which will be one of the show entrants. New this year, the winner of an auction to be held at 1:45 PM will have their vehicle on the 2017 poster to be painted by Hobbel.

Car owners are encouraged to fill out the online entry form at www.sanjuanconcours.org where additional details can be found.

    Given the HIGH cost of medical care at Peace Health they are apparently using some of the money they charge to help sponsor car shows.
