Inaugurated in August 2005, The Milwaukee Masterpiece has accomplished a good deal in just nine short years, making itself a destination for local residents as well as regional travelers.
The Milwaukee Masterpiece has grown to be counted among the most respected events of its kind in the nation.
2018 marks the 14th edition of the Milwaukee Concours d’Elegance. Since its inception, the Masterpiece has donated more than $200,000 to improve the lives of children and families in the greater Milwaukee area.
The Milwaukee Concours d’Elegance takes place on the shores of Lake Michigan at Veteran’s Park, a spectacular venue situated between the Milwaukee Yacht Club and the stunningly modern Milwaukee Art Museum.
More than 200 unique motorcars and motorcycles are selected from all over the world and invited to celebrate automotive art and history. Related events include Saturday evening’s Style & Speed Social traditionally held in an historic Milwaukee landmark.
In 2006, Club Day was established as a companion event, held in the same venue on Saturday prior to Sunday’s Concours. Now called the Show & Glow Paddock, this casual car show has grown to nearly 400 entries – a completely separate roster of fine vehicles than those seen on Sunday. In 2018 this event will be held on the same day as the judged Milwaukee Concours d’Elegance, Aug. 5
Attendees can expect to see award-winning vehicles that placed in other major shows such as Pebble Beach and Amelia Island, with owners from countries as far flung as Italy, Switzerland and Canada, as well as U.S. states from Florida and South Carolina to Utah and California.
