Balatonfüred Concours d’Elegance

Classic car parades are being held annually at the particularly nice locations of the world, where enthusiasts can compare the car's beauty. The magnificent town of Balatonfüred belongs to this privileged circle.

Continuing the tradition the Balatonfüred Concours d'Elegance will be held at the same time and place. During this time, this wonderful city and its events are honoured with the presence of important figures of the economy and public life, representatives of the art world as well as numerous visitors.


Concours d'Elegance is a beauty contest for classic cars. The prestige value of the appearance is increasing every year for the exhibitors and participants on the three-day event, which is accredited by the FIVA and MAVAMSZ.  

In connection with the potential opportunities and synergies that lie in Balatonfüred, such an event developed around the wonderful world of classic cars, which is about elegance, sailing, style and fashion as well. For the audience, it is an unforgettable experience to see the cars up close and feel the milieu.
