The Lake Tahoe Concours D'Elegance

In 1972 a group of Tahoe Yacht Club members and friends got together to share their passion for wooden boats. From this modest beginning, the Lake Tahoe Concours d' Elegance has grown to play a significant role in the wooden boat community, as well as the Lake Tahoe maritime community. Since its induction in 1994 the Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation has hosted the Lake Tahoe Concours d'Elegance focusing on the continuing growth of the show, the quality of boat exhibits, the highest of judging standards and practices, and most importantly sharing the passion of wooden boats between exhibitors and public.

Each year the Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation raises money for charitable donation which is exclusively focused in providing educational opportunities originating in the Lake Tahoe area that enhance expertise or understanding of maritime skills. Along with last years donations totaling $31,000 the Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation has been able to make grant donations totaling more than $250,000 since 1994.

Each year this event grows in popularity. In 2011, the event moved back to August which brought in the largest crowd in the event's 39 year history.

This year the show returns home to west shore and the birth place of wooden boats to Lake Tahoe, Obexer's Boat Company. With the move, the demand for the show is bigger than ever.

We hope you will come and enjoy Lake Tahoe's great historical treasures. We truly appreciate all who participate in events and contribute to what has become one of the most highly acclaimed celebrations of wooden boats in the United States.
