Greetings antique boat enthusiasts!
We’ve announced our date for the 49th Annual Lake Winnipesaukee Antique & Classic Boat Show, taking place in the midsummer in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. Our crew is 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.
We’ll be hosting our Friday Night Cocktail Reception on the evening prior to the show, Friday July 28th, with location and time to be announced. This is a good opprotunity to socialize with other folks who will have boats in the show, as well as to enjoy delicious hors d’oeuvres, some cold some hot, and a wide range of beer and wine, coffee, tea and soft drinks.
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.
More details on the Cocktail Reception are coming soon!
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.
