The Les Cheneaux Islands Antique Wooden Boat Show and Festival of Arts (located in Michigan’s beautiful Upper Peninsula) has been a major attraction since it began in 1978. The boat show averages 150 entries and is one of the largest shows featuring antique and classic wooden boats. Restored boats dating back to the early 1900’s are registered in this very unique show. Entries in the boat show arrive each August from as far as California and Florida and include dinghies, rowboats, canoes, launches, sailboats, utilities, runabouts, large cruisers, racers and classic glass.

This year the HackerCraft will be showcased and we will have a special award for these boats.

Spectator admission charge is $7.00 - 12 years to Adult. Children under 12 are free.

The show is sponsored by the Les Cheneaux Historical Association.
