The Fort Vancouver National Trust will be presenting the 2014 Columbia River Concours d’Elegance, Sunday, August 3, 2014 along Officers Row on the grounds of historic Fort Vancouver in Vancouver, Washington. The venue is just across the river from Portland, Oregon making the event easily accessible for the automobile enthusiasts from around the state or around the country.

Over 100 classic cars restored to showroom polish will be on display on the grounds of Officers Row. “The Concours is not a speed event, but one of elegance and excellence,” said Columbia River Concours founder Keith Ansell, “Vehicles are judged for their historical accuracy, their technical merit, elegance, and style. The best receive the recognition and awards they deserve.”

Awards for Best in Show, Best in Class, and Second and Third in Class will be presented. The Senior or Special Judge may also give “Specialty Awards” for cars of unusual merit.
