Event Name:14th Toledo Wooden Boat Show Festival
Event Type(s):Partner Event
Description:

The Port of Toledo's 14th annual Toledo Wooden Boat Show, August 18 - 19, 2018.

Our annual boat show is a free entry, family-friendly, weekend event that celebrates the historic tradition of wooden boats.  There are plenty of activities to enjoy – boat exhibits, vendors, live music, family boat building, kids’ boat building, and more.  The Wooden Boat Show has grown each year, attracting exhibitors, vendors, and visitors from across the state, and beyond to enjoy the maritime activities along Toledo’s Waterfront.  Come join the fun!

An assortment of vessels will be on display including classic vessels, unique owner-built boats, as well as the Port’s twin Teak Ladies, and we always invite the local commercial fishermen to bring their classic boats.  Saturday, at 1pm, the GP Containerboard Boat Contest brings entries from across the county, and is a huge draw for spectators. There is a special award for the most spectacular sinking! 
This year’s show features the Northwest Steam Society. Their members will bring steamboats and other steam equipment from across the Northwest AND there will be opportunities for an excursion ride on the Yaquina Bay.  For over 40 years, the Northwest Steam Society has been a place for enthusiasts to share their passion for live steam with the public at large through event appearances and casual gatherings.  Between their members, they have literally hundreds of years of experience with this fascinating and history-filled energy source, and will continue to promote it to future generations.  They currently count over 150 boats among its membership around the world.

The festival’s location, Waterfront Park, allows visitors easy access to the shops and businesses on Main Street.
