This is such a fun day at Ironstone, with classic autos, muscle cars, antique trucks, motorcycles and even a few classic wood boats, there is something for everyone. Period costumes, live music, great food & beverage which is served by Lions Club International no less!  What a fun group that bunch is too! They also handle the beer booths at the Ironstone Concerts. With well over 300 autos you are sure to find your dream car, maybe take home a painting of it if not the car itself... we can always dream!  Also present are the local 4-H r's here with their projects, demos and presentations.  Word is out that there are as many as 75 of these young bright stars throughout the grounds to answer your questions or help you out if you can't find your way around.  Most certainly a day to set aside, come on out and relax at Ironstone Concours d'Elegance.
