Splendor in the Ault Park Grass: The 44th Cincinnati Concours

By

The 44th annual Cincinnati Concours d’Elegance held on June 12 once served up some of the most spectacular automobiles and motorcycles of all time in a classic setting.

Cincinnati’s Ault Park is truly one of the most beautiful settings for a concours in the U.S., and this year’s 44th edition attracted 200 collector vehicles. Displayed in the formal gardens of this historic park, with a classic pavilion overlooking the field, the one-day Concours featured an automotive art show, brunch, and the always popular craft beer garden.

The Cincinnati Concours is the longest continuously running concours d’elegance outside of the West Coast, and the fourth longest in the United States. Over the years, the show has introduced a number of innovations, such as the first regular classes of motorcycles (2000) and Asian collector cars (2006).

The magnificent field was topped at the end of the day by the two Best of Show winners (Main image):
