The 21st Annual WoodenBoat Show at Mystic Seaport will be June 29-July 1, 2012.
See more than 100 traditional classics and contemporary wooden boats of every type at the 21st-annual WoodenBoat Show — a festival celebrating the design and craftsmanship of wooden craft.
Described by Yankee Magazine's Travel Guide as "one of Connecticut's Top 20 Events for the Summer," the three-day WoodenBoat Show offers something for all wooden boat enthusiasts and marine history buffs. Wooden boats of every type — large and small, old and new, power, sail, oar and paddle — will be on display including cruising yachts, launches, runabouts, fishing boats, performance powerboats, daysailers, dinghies, rowboats, canoes, performance shells, multi-hulls and racing boats.
In addition to beautiful boats in the water, visitors can enjoy browsing through tents and extensive land exhibits which include boat builders, sail makers, marine adhesive and coatings companies, boat schools and associations, maritime art and antiques, tools, wooden boat hardware, nautical gear, books and innovative items.
On Saturday evening Gannon & Benjamin Marine Railway will be honored at a Tribute Dinner in the Boat Shed.
