With the sound of classic rock ‘n roll floating in the air, thousands of visitors enjoy free admission as they admire hundreds of vehicles of all types, including classic cars, hot rods and kustoms – just to name a few.  The afternoon is capped off with a full slate of awards given to the best in each category as well as cash prizes for Best in Show and the People’s Choice. Hundreds of local families come out to cheer for the police escorted Hot Rod Cruise through Downtown Novato on the Friday evening before the main event.

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.  Last year our show expanded onto Main Street, Lakeport and we’re looking forward to adding even more in 2018.

Because this show represents the volunteer efforts of Dave Lakatos and Tony Barthel our resources are limited so only online registrations will be accepted. We sold out in 2017 and expect to do so again for 2018, so register early.
