Ironstone Concours

Special 25th Anniversary Celebration

September 24-25, 2021

For 24 consecutive years, the Ironstone Concours d’Elegance has been held on the 1100-acre estate of the Ironstone Vineyards Winery and Historic Museum in Murphys, California; in the heart of the famous 1849 California Gold Rush. The show features over 300 period-correct automobiles through 1973 including classic, vintage, antique, and race cars, vintage trailers and commercial/military vehicles as well as agricultural engines and a display of modern exotic cars. Unique to Ironstone is the Pre-1920 race car rides on a dirt track, Amphicar rides in the lake and a race car engine start.

As a charity event, funds from Ironstone Concours go to support the young people in the region, who are passionate about agriculture. Your support will allow our youth to stay involved in programs such as 4-H and FFA. We think you will agree that sharing a passion for collector cars, touring the foothills of California with friends, and supporting a great cause will be a welcome relief from the social desert we have all experienced this year. 

Proceeds from the Ironstone Concours d’Elegance benefit Central and Northern California youth in agriculture, notably Future Farmers of America (FFA) and 4-H. In addition, the non-profit Ironstone Foundation has helped fund the California State FFA headquarters in Galt, California; scholarships in partnership with the California State Fair; and the Calaveras County Fair scholarship program. Over $1,000,000 has been donated since our first event.

America's strength depends on its ability to feed itself, and we rely on today's young people to provide for the future generations of leaders in agriculture.

Overview

Established in 1950 and based in Modesto, California, the Almond Board of California is a non-profit organization that administers a grower-enacted Federal Marketing Order under the supervision of the United States Department of Agriculture. Almond Board of California offers a one-year leadership training that inspires and prepares almond community members to join a network of leaders meeting the challenges of a changing industry. 

Commitment

Since 2016, each class of the Almond Board of California’s Almond Leadership Program has vowed to raise funds for the California FFA Foundation to provide scholarships for graduating FFA students pursuing a degree in agriculture. Throughout the years, more than $150,000 has been raised through this collaboration!

Goals

To carry on this tradition, the 2020 Almond Leadership Program class is dedicated to contributing to this effort with plans to exceed their set goal of $25,000. If you would like to support the future leaders in California agriculture, please consider donating to the California FFA Foundation through the Almond Leadership Program by clicking the donate button. Also, be on the lookout for upcoming fundraising events you can participate in to help the class meet their goal!

Agricultural education strives to maintain its status on the cutting-edge of rigorous classroom instruction, relevant skill acquisition and premier leadership development. Check out the expansive and evolving catalog of resources to generate new ideas, enhance curriculum delivery skills or identify new ways to engage in FFA and SAE activities.

Resources

Beginning in the early 20th century in California, agricultural education has a long tradition of preparing students for rigorous, satisfying careers both within and outside of the industry. As a school-based learning program, agricultural education operates as a unit within the California Department of Education and is written into the state’s legislative education code.

About

Rich in history with an eye toward the future, California’s school-based agricultural education program seeks to prepare all students for satisfying careers in and outside of the agriculture industry. The multi-faceted approach to growing the whole person includes a focus on character and interpersonal skill development, technical acumen and critical thinking capabilities.

 

Events

From personal growth to career skill enhancement, the focus of California’s agricultural education events is always on the experiential development of the student. With activities ranging from local to national, the statewide organization offers a number of premier events each year that are suited to best meet the interests of an ever-diversifying student population.
