Classic and Wooden Boat Festival
Don’t miss this action-packed weekend that’s fun for the entire family. Watch as two-person teams creatively build boats from scratch on Saturday and race them on Sunday in the SikaFlex Challenge. Tour the majestic DENIS SULLIVAN, the world’s only re-creation of a 19th-century three-masted Great Lakes schooner, which will be docked alongside the museum. Kids can build and paint their own sailboat or tug (one per child, fee), meet Coastie the Coast Guard robot, and try mini-tug races. The entire family can take in beautiful classic and wooden boats brought to the museum by their proud owners. Enjoy the working waterfront and watch as artists recreate Sturgeon Bay on canvas. Plus, browse a collection of maritime-themed arts, crafts, books and collectibles in the Maritime Mart.
