BEVERLY HILLS—The city of Beverly Hills has revealed that the Concours d’Elegance car show at Greystone Mansion and Estate, set in the month of May for the past 8 years, has been put on hiatus as organizers reevaluate the event. The city will reconsider the timing and the format in order to increase the benefit to residents and coincide with other events held in Beverly Hills.
Beverly Hills officials will be meeting with stakeholders to discuss ways to ensure the long-term sustainability of the Concours event. Community services staff will work with the stakeholders to create options to update the format and maximize the funds raised to support the restoration of Greystone.
“The City sincerely thanks the Friends of Greystone and the sponsors, volunteers, exhibitors and vendors who have made the show a success for the past eight years,” states a press release from Canyon News received from Therese Kosterman, Public Information Manager for the city of Beverly Hills.
Greystone Mansion and Estate was built in 1928, and is a public park within the hillside area of Beverly Hills. The city of Beverly Hills purchased the property in 1965 and in 1971 established the 18.3-acre site as a public park, including the Greystone Mansion. In 1976, Greystone was listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Greystone was designated Beverly Hills Local Historic Landmark No. 4 in 2013.
