Boat show

Annual Wooden Boat Show

Whether you’re a boating enthusiast or prefer to keep your feet on dry land, the Annual Wooden Boat Show is an event not to be missed. Held each year on the first Saturday in May, this free celebration honors the art of traditional North Carolina wooden boatbuilding and boat racing. Marvel at the craftsmanship of dozens of handcrafted wooden boats on display and witness nautical demonstrations that showcase the timeless beauty of these vessels. The roots of this beloved event date back to 1975 when Mr. Charles R.

Since then, the show has grown in popularity, showcasing over 80 boats in its heyday.
