The 39th Annual Lake Tahoe Concours d’ Elegance is scheduled for August 10 – 11, 2012 in Carnelian Bay, California along the pristine shoreline of majestic Lake Tahoe. Visit the web site at for show details, advance discount ticket sales, sponsor and donor packages, and updated entertainment opportunities throughout Wooden Boat Week, which takes places the week leading up to the show.

The Lake Tahoe Concours d’ Elegance Wooden Boat Show, founded by members of the Tahoe Yacht Club in 1972 and hosted by the Club’s Foundation since 1994, is regarded nationally as the premier event for maritime enthusiasts. Heading into its 39th year, the Foundation has selected ‘Gar Wood - the Gentleman’s Runabout’ as the featured Marque Class. These luxurious and powerful “aristocrats of motorboats” were first introduced in 1922 by inventor, industrialist and record-setting speedboat racer Garfield A. Wood and are a fan favorite. The Lake Tahoe Concours d’ Elegance showcases from 75 to 110 antique boats each year and draws more than 5,000 participants and visitors.

The goal of the Foundation is to maintain the heritage of wooden boating while providing an entertaining and learning experience for all to enjoy. With proceeds from the Concours, the 501(c)(3 ) charitable foundation has awarded more than $250,000 in grants to non-profit organizations in the Tahoe Basin to advance maritime education.
