Ault Park Concours d’Elegance features an Italian icon and plenty of pre-parties


Sunday, June 12, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Ault Park


For the 39th year, the Ault Park Concours d’Elegance will bring a display of spectacular automobiles to Cincinnati – made even more special this year because the featured marque is Ferrari – an Italian icon.

Displays will include “100 Years of BMW,” “The Cars of Donald Healey,” “All-American Workhorse – the Pickup Truck” and “50th Anniversary of the Ford GT40 1-2-3 Sweep of LeMans.”

The show also will feature 13 regular classes of classic, vintage and exotic automobiles and motorcycles.

Sunday-only pre-show adult tickets are $20, or four for $60, through 8 p.m. June 5. Day-of-show tickets are $25 or $15 for students (with student ID); children 12 and under will be admitted  free.
