The Lakeside Car & Boat Show in Lakeport, California - Saturday August 17, 2019
Lakeside Hot Car and Boat Show - August 16-17, 2019
The Lakeside Car & Boat Show is a very special event with 100% of proceeds going to Operation Tango Mike, an organization that sends care packages to in-service military personnel. We have two days of fun planned on land and water.
Because this show represents the volunteer efforts of Dave Lakatos and Tony Barthel our resources are limited so only on-line registrations will be accepted. We sold out in 2017 and 2018 so register early.
This year we’ve added a segment for motorcycles and are working on a great partnership for this section.
We’re also going to have vintage trailers in Willow Point Campground so keep an eye open for those.
This year we’ve got unique entries for cars, boats, bikes and vintage RVs!

Show Recap from 2018
Thank you to everybody who braved the smokey air for a fun day in the park raising money for Operation Tango Mike and enjoying boats on the lake and cars on the streets. We hope you had a wonderful time and hope you consider joining us again in 2019 on Saturday, August 17. We have added vintage trailers as well as motorcycles for '19 so keep that in mind!
We are still finalizing show details but here’s a run down of how our 2018 show went. We’re expecting 2019 to be even better but the timeline will be similar.
Friday, August 17, 2018
Enjoy a concert by the band Illeagles in Library Park starting at 6pm followed by A Night of Fire where high-performance boats will fire up and shoot blue flames into the night sky. Bring your low-back lawn chair for the concert.
Saturday, August 18, 2018
Starting in the morning high-performance boats will make passes on Clear Lake leaving from the 3rd Street Boat Launch in Lakeport's Library Park. There is no charge for the public to attend and enjoy this very special day in the park! Yep, folks, it's freakin' free! There will be cars lined up along Park and Main Streets in Lakeport, CA and we will have food, beer and other vendors. Even better, Lakeport's Main Street has some great places to grab something to eat so come hungry.
We have a great arrangement for free parking - you can park at the County parking lot on the corner of Brush Street & 3rd Street.
Parking & Clubs
Meanwhile, show vehicles will be parking along Main Street in Lakeport as well as Park Street. There will also be a high-value lot for specific vehicles. Registration/entry will open up around 7:30a.m.
This year we will have three entrances - check our map for details. Basically come on in and stroll over to the show office on 3rd street to complete your registration. We believe there will even be day-of registrations.
Clubs can come in individual members. If you would like to park together as a group, please come as a group. You can meet at places like Bruno's Shop Smart and then all come at once.
We have a separate entry for boats to speed things up. Boats can enter from the corner of Fifth and Main Streets in Lakeport, CA. We have two great volunteers there to help you get set.
In addition to nearby restaurants and bars we will have these wonderful vendors with food in Library Park:
Shirley Cisneros - A Passion for Food - Philippine Specialties along with pulled pork sandwiches and even breakfast items!!
A Smoothie Sensation - Great smoothies and other treats
Early Lake Lions - locally-crafted beer from O'Meara Brothers
We have some unique vendors with products from Lake County. Among those are:
Deb Clark - Clark's Collectibles Lunchbox Museum - great collectible items
Kathy Spurr - Face Painting
USCellular - New Trend Wireless - our local representatives for USCellular
Beginning at noon The Fargo Brothers will perform from the gazebo at Library Park from 12-4. Bring your portable FM radio so you can tune-in to the announcements and music at the car show.
Since this show is all about those who serve our country please join us in a noon time salute to veterans with the national anthem along with the firing of the 50 caliber gun on Bob Bartley's WWII-era Jeep.
We have tons of great trophies again this year sponsored by local businesses for both cars and boats. Awards presentation will be approximately 3pm.
