Concours d’ EleganceKatie Tyler, August 7, 2015 in Activities & Recreation, Events
Now in it’s 43rd year, the Concours d’ Elegance at Lake Tahoe will be staged at the historic Obexer’s Boat Company in Homewood today, Friday, August 7th as well as Saturday August 8th. Said to be the most prestigious wooden boat show in North America, the crowd will be as remarkable as the boats themselves.
On display will be more than 70 of the most immaculately restored wooden boats from all over the globe. Judges will look for boats that have been restored to the highest level of authenticity and original standard as they appeared when they were shipped from the factory. The event prides itself on the quality of entrants, and boasts the highest standards of judging and sharing the passion of wooden boats with contestants and the public.
In conjunction with the boats on show is the Concours Wine Village where you can relax in the shade and enjoy wines from all over the country. If you are looking for more ways to engage, sign up for one of the other social events such as the men’s BBQ or a ladies luncheon.
An annual mainstay event in Tahoe, the Concours d’ Elegance is well worth the trip to Homewood. Don’t miss it!
