Event Description

Rows of hand-made and unique watercraft, a boat parade, craft demonstrations, an evening square dance, boat and tool auction, chowder and brats…there’s a bit of everything during our Wooden Boat Show and Summer Solstice Festival. Try your hand at a workshop or course; be inspired by the stories of boat builders, sailors, and travelers and plan your next adventure. Join us as we welcome the summer season in the best way possible: talking boats, celebrating community and hanging out on the shores of Lake Superior.

This year’s Featured Speaker at 12:30 on Sunday, June 23 will be Douglas Brooks, returning by popular demand with fresh stories from his time in Japan studying with traditional boat builders. His talk, Ways of Learning: An Apprentice Boat Builder in Japan will be at 12:30 on Sunday, and he will teach and demonstrate throughout the weekend. Full schedule available online  May 2019.
