Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance on Aug. 10-11

The Lake Tahoe Concours d’ Elegance celebrates its 40th anniversary August 10 – 11, 2012, with the Riva Aquaramaas the Marque Class. The collection of nearly 100 antique wooden boats will gather once again at the height of summer along the docks of the Sierra Boat Companyin Carnelian Bay, Calif., to compete for top honors in multiple categories.

“After holding the show on Father’s Day weekend in 2009 and 2010, the move back to August in 2011 allowed our event to become the largest attended show in our 39-year history,” said Foundation president Dave Olson on last year’s show. “We are thrilled to have an agreement with Sierra Boat Company to keep the August date for 2012, which will feature one of the rarest and most elegant boat lines, Riva Aquarama. This promises to be our most successful show to date.”

In addition to the two-day show, the Foundation hosts a variety of social gatherings both before and after the main event in honor of those participants who make the Lake Tahoe Concours d’ Elegance one of the most prestigious wooden boat shows in North America. This year those events include the Opening Night Gala, exhibitor barbecue and award dinner, Ladies’ Luncheon, Men’s Grill and Mahogany Magic (produced by the Tahoe Yacht Club).
