Wooden Boat Festival

September 7 @ 1:00 pm - September 10 @ 4:00 pm

$20 - $40

Port Townsend’s Wooden Boat Festival is the most education-packed and beautifully located wooden boat event in the world. Featuring more than 300 wooden vessels, hundreds of indoor and outdoor presentations and demonstrations, a who’s who of wooden boat experts and thousands of wooden boat enthusiasts, there’s something to do, someone to meet, or a boat to board at every turn. Expanded a little each year, the Festival honors its traditions while inviting energetic debate about the latest innovation. Check out our website or our WBF Facebook page for the most recent 2017 info.

Washington Sea Grant will have TWO  boater outreach booths with materials on safety at sea, boating maintenance,  small oil spill prevention and pumpout education.
