The Concours d’Elegance is the featured event of the Lakeland Auto Show weekend. Approximately 100 premium classic automobiles are invited to be displayed along the Lake Mirror Promenade on Saturday. A team of expert judges inspect and grade the vehicles worthy to receive a coveted Lake Mirror Swan trophy.
Open Car Show
The Open Car Show takes place on the streets of downtown Lakeland. The streets will be closed-off to accommodate nearly 500 special interest and collector cars of all types. Vehicles will be displayed in groups of similar makes and models. Marque specific car clubs are encouraged to attend and efforts are made to reserve space for clubs with 10 or more members in attendance. Street vendors and entertainers add to the festival atmosphere as thousands of appreciative spectators enjoy the vehicles. This group is not judged, but sponsors carefully choose their favorite vehicles to receive a coveted Lake Mirror Classic Ribbon. All vehicles must be pre-registered.
