Here's my rundown on the 2016 Monterey Week. I've tried to list the events in order by date. You should note that some events have multiple dates. After each event I've made some comments based on my past experience. I lifted most of the info (except my opinions) from http://www.montereycarweek.com/Events.html. I did check each event's site as well.
There is so much to do during the week that I won't get to every event. The good thing for you though is that many events have free aspects so regardless of your income you can see and experience some great automobiles. I suggest you check the websites for more information. For example on the extended Pebble Beach grounds there are events, like RetroAuto and the Automotive Fine Arts Society that are not listed separately here.
Also if you're going to one of the free events such as Concours On The Avenue be sure to patronize some of the area merchants.
If I've missed anyone please let me know and I'll update my article.
Automobilia Monterey is a great place to go for just what it's name suggests - automobilia.
Another free event and it is just what the name implies - a show of little cars. Good fun and laid back.
Another show I haven't been to yet. I promised to go a few years ago and just didn't make it.
I can’t find any information on this event and the website doesn’t work
People pick out their favorite viewing spot along the route some very historic cars drive. Take a picnic basket and enjoy the Peninsula and the cars.
Another high energy auction. You can walk the field and view all the cars. It is huge.
An upscale event - cars, food, drink and beautiful people. I've been a couple of times but they've cut me off. It is pricey.
There is no other. The creme de la creme of cars at one of the most beautiful settings in the world. Pebble has a whole host of events going on so check their website.
