The 2019 Grand Stutz will be held on August 23 through 26 in conjunction with the Geneva Concours in Geneva, Illinois.  There will be information on the Grand STuTZ and articles on the Elgin races in the Stutz News leading up to our event.

The event will include:

On Sunday, Stutz will be a feature at the Geneva Concours http://genevaconcours.net/

Geneva is a charming city of old buildings that has been revitalized along the Fox River about 40 miles west of Chicago. 

For the event, the entire Main Street is closed for the concours cars, but all the shops, restaurants and cafés remain open…making it one of the most enjoyable concours events we have attended.
