Annual WoodenBoat Show at Mystic Seaport Museum
June 23, 2023 - June 25, 2023
The largest gathering of wooden boats and enthusiasts in New England will converge at Mystic Seaport Museum for the annual WoodenBoat Show June 23rd-25th, 2023 daily
The WoodenBoat Show, hosted in a partnership with WoodenBoat Publications, offers something for all wooden boat enthusiasts and maritime history buffs. More than 100 traditional and classic wooden boats of every type will be on display, from hand-crafted kayaks to mahogany runabouts, to classic daysailers and schooners.
In addition to taking in the historic vessels and beautiful boats, visitors can find everything they need to outfit their own watercraft and learn new skills at demonstrations and workshops throughout the weekend. A variety of exhibitors will offer items for sale including maritime art, antiques, tools, books, nautical gear, and much more.
Visitors can also try their hand at rowing or sailing a small sail- or rowboat for free at the Museum’s boat livery during the show. People may also take out one of the boats participating in the John Gardner Small Craft Workshop, which is run concurrently with the show by the Traditional Small Craft Association.
Museum admission provides access to both The Wooden Boat Show and Mystic Seaport Museum. Three-day passes are available.
