About the Concours
Welcome to the 48th annual Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance.  August 7 – 8, 2020.

SHOW INFORMATION

Immerse yourself in elegance August 7-8, 2020 at the 48th annual Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance. Presented by the Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation, the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance is North America’s premier wooden boat show. Held at the historic Obexer’s Boat Company in the unrivaled beauty of Lake Tahoe’s scenic West Shore, the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance is a showcase of the most well-preserved and restored wood boats in the world. It is the longest running boat show on Lake Tahoe and is unsurpassed in its exhibition and preservation of boating and maritime tradition. Over the past four and a half decades, it has become the most acclaimed and prestigious wooden boat show in all of North America.

The 2020 Marque Class is boats of the 1960’s. Concours judges from throughout the United States have already begun their work using the Foundation’s own nationally-acclaimed 100 point judging system and score sheet. Their collective goal: to reward those who have restored their boats to the highest level of authenticity as they appeared when they were shipped from the factory. Because multiple first, second and third-place awards can be won in each class, each boat is judged on its own merit and only compared to other boats when selecting Perpetual awards.

The Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance is more than a display of wooden boats. The show also offers unique shops, a fully stocked bar, food, and a Wine Village.

The show is the centerpiece of a larger celebration honoring wooden boats and maritime tradition. Presented by the Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation, Wooden Boat Week is filled with exclusive social events commemorating the prestige and history of wooden boats. An intimate Opening Night Gala dinner kicks off the week, followed by the Exhibitors’ Barbecue and Awards Presentation, a Men’s Grill, Ladies’ Luncheon on the Lake, Woodie Over-The-Bottom race, and the all-inclusive Mahogany Magic event.  All events are open to the public.  As a special thank you to Concours Personal and Corporate Sponsors, there are special offerings including a VIP Lounge and parking at the show, and by-invitation-only Sponsor Dinner.

A portion of your ticket to the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance will go directly back into the Lake Tahoe community. Since its induction in 1994, the Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation has raised money exclusively to provide educational opportunities originating in the Lake Tahoe area that enhance expertise or understanding of maritime skills. Concours is the foundation’s largest event. In previous years, the foundation has given back to the North Lake Tahoe Historical Society, Sierra State Parks Foundation, the Tahoe Community Sailing Foundation, the Tahoe Maritime Center, and the Thunderbird Preservation Society among others. These charitable donations are a way for the Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation to achieve its ultimate goal of sharing the passion of wooden boats with owners and the public.
