History of The Detroit Concours

The Meadow Brook Concours started forty-five years ago at Meadow Brook Hall in Rochester, MI.  The Meadow Brook Hall and Estate was the private residence of automotive tycoon John F. Dodge. The residence  is the ninth largest residence in the United States and includes 110 rooms and covers 88,000 square feet. Today, Meadow Brook Hall is owned by Oakland University. (1979–2010).

Meadow moved the venue in 2010 to Plymouth, MI, to the John’s Golf Course in Plymouth, MI, and changed its name to the “Concours d’Elegance of America”. The St. John’s Inn is a large venue with over 200 acres of carefully sculptured and landscaped lawn. The Concours was very popular attracting over15,000 car lovers per show. The show was forced to find a new venue when Luxury homebuilder Toll Brothers was granted approval for a new $100 million luxury condominium development. (2011-2020)

In 2021, Hagerty stepped in and bought the “Concours d’Elegance of America” and renamed it to “The Detroit Concours d’Elegance”. Hagerty needed a new venue and chose the Detroit Institute of Arts Museum (DIA) and the Detroit Tigers’ Comerica Park. This will be the first year for Hagerty to host this event. Hagerty has a tremendous amount of experience with car shows. In fact, Hagerty takes part in more than 2,500 car events annually. In the last couple years, Hagery has acquired ownership of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, Greenwich Concours d’Elegance, and the California Mille. (2021–Present)

Additional Hagerty acquisitions include The Concours d’Elegance include Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance – another one of the premiere automotive events in the country, plus California Mille and the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance. Hagerty takes part in more than 2,500 car events annually.
