Homewood, CA – Get your tickets now for an evening of history, food, wine, art, music and elegance. The 2016 Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance (in association with Tahoe Luxury Properties) Opening Night Gala is Thursday, August 11th. The event takes place at the Tahoe Maritme Museum.
The Tahoe Maritime Museum is a place of preservation to Lake Tahoe’s rich maritime history. Many supporters from Tahoe and beyond donated artifacts, funding and countless hours to help the non-profit achieve its ambitious mission: to stimulate an interest in, increase knowledge of, and maintain watercraft and marine artifacts significant in Lake Tahoe’s maritime history through the highest standards of historic preservation, innovative interpretation and public education.
The museum recently moved to its new location, the former 10-acre Tahoe Tree Company nursery in Tahoe City, Calif. The property has quickly become a destination for special events.

The Tahoe Maritime Museum is an intimate location, one where you will be entertained with the stories behind the boats and the owners. The Opening Night Gala also features wine, four-star cuisine, music and the work of Jay Thelin and Randall Stauss. Thelin’s sculptures are created using the parts and pieces of old woodies. These sculptures will be paired with the beautiful paintings Stauss has done of some of Tahoe’s most famous antique boats.

The gala is limited to the first 200 people. Reservations are $140. The Gala begins at 6:00 p.m. Thursday, August 11th – the opening night of the Concours d’Elegance. Purchase your tickets now at laketahoecouncours.com.
