Collector Car &
Classic Boat Show
August 26 and 27, 2017
Lake Oswego, Oregon
Every year, the Oswego Heritage Council proudly presents the Annual Collector Car & Classic Boat Show. What started out as a handful of local classic cars on display in Millennium Plaza has expanded to a huge show with cars and boats from all over the area. The show now draws thousands of people over two days and has expanded from one park to three Lake Oswego venues, with free shuttles provided between the venues.
As always, there is no cost for admission to any of the event’s locations. This is the only show in the tri-county area that combines collector cars and classic boats.
At George Rogers Park, we showcase collector cars spanning an array of makes, models, and decades. Cars are driven onto the field in the morning on August 27th for public display from 9:00am to 3:00pm with the awards ceremony for the Car Show beginning at 2:00pm. The Lake Oswego Lions Club will put on their pancake breakfast at 7:30am, and lunch starting at 11:00am.
Sundeleaf Plaza is our venue for beautiful and rare classic boats docked for up-close viewing. These watercraft represent years of floating style and elegance. With up to 40 boats on display, each one represents an example of the ﬁnest and most complete classic boat presentations the region has to offer, many of which as wooden masterpieces.
In Foothills Park, we display unique land and sea classics, many of which are seldom accessible for close-up public viewing. The world’s only operating PT Boat will be on display and open for on-board tours from its arrival at 10:00am, August 26th to Sunday afternoon the next day. Military and civilian vehicles will be on display both days as well as a display from the Lake Oswego Veterans Memorial Organization.
What makes our show exceptional is it’s not a strictly judged show, but rather a fun and unique event for families and enthusiasts who come from throughout the region to attend. All proceeds beneﬁt Oswego Heritage Council, which is Lake Oswego’s museum dedicated to the preservation of local history, and supports OHC community events and educational programs.
Austin-Healey…Our Featured Car Show Marque for 2017
A few years ago, we started selecting a feature vehicle to headline the Car Show event. The 18th Annual Collector Car and Boat Show is proud to make this the year of Austin-Healey.
Austin-Healey sports cars were built from 1952 until 1971 in a joint venture between the Austin division of the British Motor Corporation and the Donald Healey Motor Company. Models such as the Austin-Healey 3000 and the Austin-Healey Sprite have become some of the most quintessential examples of classic British sports cars. We are very excited to present many examples of Austin-Healey as our feature car for 2017.
Have a wonderful vintage auto product or service? Want to be part of the event? Every year, a limited number of exhibitor spaces are made available to businesses and/or non-proﬁt organizations who want to reach out to the crowds coming to our George Rogers Park venue. Consistently, exhibitors come back the next year because of the success they experienced at the show.
Being a sponsor of our Collector Car and Classic Boat Show is a great way for individuals or organizations to actively support this event. Sponsorships are open to supporters at various levels for all members of the community. Each level comes with its beneﬁts package to showcase the sponsor. Joining our growing family of sponsors is a great way to say thanks to the volunteers who make this show happen while supporting its continuation as an annual community event. Again, this is a no-cost even to the public.
