Milwaukee, WI — After completing its 15th event this year, the Milwaukee Concours d’Elegance’s Board has decided to cancel the event in 2020.
A statement from the concours said that as the 2019 event drew to a close, “the Board reflected on the current state of affairs and concluded we were not meeting our financial goals and had not done so for several years. Further, we were facing several key volunteer leadership openings going into 2020 for which we had limited candidates. Given these factors, it became obvious that changes had to be made for 2020 while we regrouped for 2021.”
As a result, the Board is exploring a half-day motor tour to a noteworthy destination, followed by a luncheon at that destination.
The Board said it will undertake extensive work to identify additional volunteer leadership staff and to potentially reconstitute the Milwaukee Concours in 2021.
