The eighth annual Concours in the Hills car show in 2022 continued its unbroken tradition of record setting. Almost 1,200 vehicles, and an estimated 40-50,000 spectators, completely filled 35-acre Fountain Park in Fountain Hills, AZ to raise over $460,000 for Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Spectator attendance is free.

 

The ever-increasing popularity of the show is attributable to the unique location - on the gently rolling slopes and green grass of Fountain Park around the lake and fountain in Fountain Hills. 

 

This is NOT a formal “white gloves” concours but rather a fun and relaxed car show open to all makes and models.

 

Mother Nature again cooperated with clear, sunny skies and temperatures in the low 80’s. The magnitude of this show is a testament to the enormity and diversity of the car scene in Arizona. The show had over 100 sponsors encompassing most facets of the car business.

 

The show is arranged by sections for Domestic, European, Asian, Race Cars, Limited Edition Exotics, Motorcycles, Military and Off-Road vehicles. The Race Car Section featured about forty cars from Indy, LeMans, CanAm and other race series.

 

Six helicopters flew in and were on display including a USMC AH-1Z Cobra around which Cobras from the local club were displayed.

 

The show was declared open by former race-drivers Arie Luyendyk, Harley Cluxton, Derek Daly and Lyn St. James announcing, “Drivers Start Your Engines”.

 

A special interactive feature was the Discount Tire Pit Stop Competition where the public were able to test their skill at a timed wheel change as in NASCAR.

 

Awards are given for Best Domestic, Best Import, Best Race Car, Best 4 X 4/Off Road, Best Car Club Display, Best of Show.

Sponsor applications will be sent out in September and vehicle registrations will also start in September. Spectators are free.
