Show Date: Saturday, July 30th at the Wolfeboro Town Docks – 9 a.m to 2 p.m.
Cocktail Reception Date: Friday, July 29th – Downtown Grille Cafe @ Wolfeboro Town Docks
Greetings antique boat enthusiasts!
We’ve announced our date for the 48th Annual Lake Winnipesaukee Antique & Classic Boat Show, taking place in the midsummer in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. Our crew has begun making preparations for our largest event of the year and we’ll be adding information to this page as the season progresses.
We are continuing with our new casual show format, boats will not be ‘points judged’ for awards, but People’s Choice and Participant’s Choice awards will be given out as normal.
Our Friday Night Cocktail mingle will be held on Friday, July 29th at the Downtown Grille Cafe right at the town docks, overlooking the next day’s show site! We will have the complete restaurant and the outside deck over looking the newly built Town Docks and show site; to enjoy delicious hors d’oeuvres, some cold some hot, and a wide range of beer and wine, coffee, tea and soft drinks.
The cost for the evening is $28.00 per person and the club will be providing a $5.00 drink coupon, to offset the cash bar. James has agreed to have a pot of their super three bean beef chili ready as well as keeping the kitchen open to make up early dinners for anyone interested. He has also offered a 20% coupon for attendees to use on Sat-Sunday purchases. Again a fifty person limit.
We encourage all folks entering boats in the show to attend as it is a great opportunity to meet and socialize with both our Crew and other show participants. Our dock master will also give a talk and answer questions about how the show will be run the following day, which you’ll surely not want to miss.
As always we have set aside most of the parking lot for displaying antique vehicles. These spots are first-come first-serve, we suggest getting there before 9 a.m. to secure yourself a good spot. Registration for vehicles is done day-of-show, so be sure to check in with our Registrar at the gazebo when you first arrive. People’s Choice and Participant’s Choice awards will be given out for vehicles as well!
If you are planning on launching your boat at the docks on day-of-show we recommend that you get there early in the morning, as soon as 7 a.m. as things can get quite busy as the morning progresses. Trailer parking is available at our municipal parking lot a few blocks away from the docks.
