Keeneland Concours d’Elegance

Lexington, Kentucky


Welcome to the Paddock! 

This is where car enthusiasts can bring their rides, meet their friends and be immersed in pure automotive fun. 


The Paddock is a unique area of the concours immediately adjacent to the juried car field.  Attendees are free to set up lawn chairs and spend the day relaxing near their rides, touring the show field and enjoying the many attractions at the concours.  So, tell your friends who have a special vehicle, a sports car, or are members of a car club that they have a great area at the concours designated for their ride.


An annual competition amongst the Paddock folks is the voting for their favorite marque.  A day long collection is taken and the club with the most money donated has their name engraved on the Paddock Challenge Cup.  The Bluegrass Region Porsche Club won the cup in 2014 and has won the cup seven of the ten years the award has been presented.  The total donation from the Paddock clubs over the ten years has been $54,095.62.


The club with the highest donation per attending vehicle has their club name engraved on the Paddock Plaque.  This award was won by the Miata Power Lunch Group of Lexington in 2014.  Both the Cup and the Plaque are displayed during the year in the Kentucky Children’s Hospital lobby.


The Paddock area is limited to vehicles identifiable as being of Special Interest, Sports Cars, and Club Cars.  Designated exhibition vehicles are also welcome.  The fee for entrance to the Paddock area is $5.00 per vehicle in addition to the General Admission.
