The Deutsche Marque Concours d’Elegance is an automotive party featuring fine German collector vintage and modern cars arrayed around2 Silos Brewing Company in Manassas, Virginia. Car owners, and those who adore their cars, gather for a day of mutual admiration and relaxed camaraderie while guest judges review and critique the participants’ cars.

This year will represent the 37th time that we have gathered members of the National Capital Chapter of the BMW Car Club of America (BMWCCA), the Greater Washington Section of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America (MBCA), and the Potomac Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA) for this terrific show.

This event will be held rain or shine on Sunday, May 2, 2021.

All registration must take place online this year due to the pandemic.  There will be NO on-site registration permitted.

You must be a current BMW CCA member to register.

There is no charge to attend the concours as a spectator. 

One of the highlights of our event schedule, and an annual rite of spring for German car fans, is the Deutsche Marque Concours d’Elegance. This year marks a milestone – the 37th time that we have gathered with our friends from the Greater Washington Section of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America (MBCA) and the Potomac Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA) for this terrific show. We have a new venue this year – 2 Silos Brewery Company, located on the Farm Brew Live campus at Innovation Park in Manassas, VA. The venue is easily reached via Route 66. The park entrance will be marked with large car club banners so that you cannot miss it.

In the Deutsche Marque Concours, vehicles are judged by their condition, appearance, and cleanliness. There will be three classes at this event – Street (judged), Meister class (judged – consisting of first-place category winners from the 2019 concours), and Display class (not judged – winner selected by people’s choice balloting). Judges scoring cars in the Street and Meister classes will only judge the tops of the cars (including the exterior, interior, engine bay, storage compartments and chrome), but not the chassis. Street class cars are generally divided into several groups based upon BMW CCA national concours rules.

Please note: Cars produced after 2016 will not be judged but are welcome to be entered in the Display class, and eligible for the People’s Choice and Judges’ Choice awards.

Vehicles will be classified into the following categories:

Classics – All Thru 501/2/3/7, 3200, Isetta/600, 700, NK Sedans, 2000C/CS, E3, E9, E12, E21
