Lake Union Wooden Boat Festival, Seattle, WA
Come to The Center for Wooden Boats 37th Annual Lake Union Wooden Boat Festival, July 4 through July 7, 2013.
At the Lake Union Wooden Boat Festival we celebrate heritage wooden boats. We celebrate the people who make them. We take people out on the water in them. Everything is fun, almost everything is free and nothing much is fancy. It’s as authentically grassroots American as you can get and has been for the past 36 years.
“The Lake Union Wooden Boat Festival is one of the best family entertainment values in the Seattle area for the 4th of July weekend,” said Aislinn Palmer, Lake Union Wooden Boat Festival coordinator. “The Festival is one of the few hands-on maritime festivals where visitors can learn to caulk a seam, how to rivet a plank to a frame, try out a classic skiff on the water or tour a classic Northwest wooden vessel that’s been lovingly restored.”
Come for the fun, the toy boat building, the quick and daring boat building race, the food, the music…but mostly come for Seattle’s biggest wooden boat celebration.
