Lake Tahoe Concours d'Elegance
August 11, 2017 to August 12, 2017

This year’s 45th annual Concours will again be staged at the historic Obexer’s Boat Company in Homewood, CA., on Lake Tahoe’s beautiful West Shore with the two-day show open to the public on Friday, Aug. 11, and Saturday, Aug. 12.

Concours Judges from throughout the United States will have already begun their work using the Foundation’s own nationally-acclaimed 100 point judging system and score sheet. Their collective goal: to reward those who have restored their boats to the highest level of authenticity as they appeared when they were shipped from the factory. Because multiple first, second and third-place awards can be won in each class, each boat is judged on its own merit and only compared to other boats when selecting Perpetual awards.

The Exhibitors’ Barbecue and Awards Presentation on Friday evening, Aug. 11, is just one of the social events surrounding the Concours.  A gala Opening Night Dinner and Dance kicks off Wooden Boat Week, with a Men’s Grill, Ladies’ Luncheon and Fashion Show, and Woodie Over-The-Bottom following.  All events are open to the public.  As a special thank you to Concours Personal and Corporate Sponsors, there are special offerings including a VIP Lounge and parking at the show, and by-invitation-only Sponsor Dinner.

North Tahoe Arts (NTA) has held a traditional studio tour for 22 years. However, in the last couple of years traffic in the North Tahoe area during the summer has made it very difficult for visitors to reach some of the artist locations. After taking a year off to listen to input from artists and visitors, we have restructured ARTour to take place in one location, Tahoe City. 

In keeping with NTA’s mission of education, and with the spirit of a studio tour, there will be considerable emphasis on demonstrations and discussion by the artists about their creative processes. The opportunity to watch demos and presentations makes ARTour a compelling experience for visitors and differentiates it from traditional craft fairs. 

August 12, 2017 to August 13, 2017
