Lake Oswego is home to two major events that spotlight works of art. The first and largest is the Festival of the Arts. The second largest is the Oswego Heritage Council’s Collector Car and Classic Boat Show set for Sunday August 25.
Featuring cars and boats that harken back to an era that valued style, craftsmanship and detail over efficiency, speed and good mileage, this too is a festival of arts—works meant to be ogled at and appreciated.
Here are some details to help you enjoy the show.
- There will only be two venues this year: Sundeleaf Plaza for the boats and George Rogers Park for the cars.
- Returning this year is a Poker Run Car Tour to benefit the scholarships in the Dr. Quinton-Cox Memorial and the Oswego Heritage Council Museum. The tour will take participants to five historic locations beginning at Foothills Park at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 24. For a $5 donation, participants will receive two playing cards which they can then add to at $1 per card along the way. By the tour’s end, the players holding the three best poker hands will prize baskets.
- Lions Club pancake breakfast will be kicking things off on Sunday, August 25 at 7:30 a.m. at George Rogers Park followed up with lunch beginning at 11:00 a.m.
- Collector cars will start lining up in George Rogers Park on Sunday morning and be on display from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This year’s featured Marque is Pre-World War II Classics. Keep an eye out for the best representations of this era known for its workmanship and design.
- Nearly 40 classic boats will be docked at Sundeleaf Plaza for close-up viewing offering examples of rare as well as wooden masterpieces. They all come with a story which owners are more than happy to share.
- Free shuttles will be running to transport visitors to the two different locations.
