Long time locals have often lazily just called this ‘The Wooden Boat Show’, but as South Shore has a similar event by that name, it’s more accurate to call it by it’s real moniker – The Concours d’Elegance. This marvelous annual event is put on every year by the Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation.

This year’s Condours is this weekend, August 12 and 13 in Homewood, at Obexer’s Boat Company.  Friday’s hours are from 10am-4:30pm and Saturday from 9am-4:30 pm, with the ‘Roar Off’ at 4pm.

Sporting a large display of vintage boats from across the country, connoisseur’s  of these lovely nods to Tahoe’s past delight not only those who own and cherish these boats, but everyone who has the pleasure of viewing them.

The Opening Night Dinner is on Thursday evening for the first 150 people who make reservations, but what is truly wonderful about this event is that it is being held at the new location of the Tahoe Maritime Museum. Located in what was the original log building of the Tahoe Tree Company on the West Shore just out of Tahoe City, even if you don’t sign up for the dinner, it’s well worth visiting the museum where you can wander and explore more of the history of Tahoe’s maritime past. (Future post on the museum itself coming soon.)

On Sunday there is also a Ladies Luncheon or the Men’s Grill.
