Port of Toledo Wooden Boat Show

Posted by OCVA / August 19, 2012

The Annual Port of Toledo Wooden Boat Show is an old-fashioned, down-home waterfront festival where everything is fun and nothing much is fancy. It’s as authentically grassroots American as you can get! Launched in 2005, the first Wooden Boat Show kicked off to coincide with the City of Toledo’s Centennial Celebration.

Held in August when the weather is fantastic, the Wooden Boat Show showcases vintage and new wooden boats at Port Dock One! The finest boat builders in the Pacific Northwest come to display their work and demonstrate their craft. Live music, food from various vendors and events for the whole family make this a festival not to be missed. Local artisans line the walk to display and sell their work.

Every year the Wooden Boat Show honors a builder, style or era of wooden boat. A commemorative poster is created each year to set the tone for the event.
