Monterey Car Week is a week in August during which a large number of car-oriented events are held in and around Monterey, California. The week culminates on Sunday with the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, which is French for "a competition of elegance."

This charitable function has served the United Way of Monterey County and the Pebble Beach Company Foundation for a combination of 56 years. The 2014 event raised nearly $1.7 million, bringing the total of donations to $19 million over the years.

The first-place award winners in each category are placed against one another for the prestigious "Best of Show" award, which is a tribute to the collector's taste and judgment. Held at The Lodge at Pebble Beach on the storied 18th green of their golf course, this event is the premier event for any car collector.
