Port Aransas Wooden Boat Festival

Port Aransas Skiff, SEA C, at 2015 Port Aransas Wooden Boat Festival.
Friday, April 6, 2018 to Sunday, April 8, 2018

Farley Boat Works, Duckworks Boat Builder’s Supply and the Traditional Small Craft Association are once again teaming up to put on this grand event. If you've ever dreamed about building a boat you owe it to yourself to attend. This is your chance to see a lot of boats and to talk to the builders and some famous designers. You can try your hand at rowing a variety of skiffs; enjoy presentations about boat building; build a boat yourself during Family Boatbuilding. Bring the whole family; there will be activities for the kids! If you have already built a wooden boat, bring it to exhibit and share your experience with others.

If you have a boat that you want to display, all registration this year will be at the event site the day of the show. There is no charge for registration regardless of the number of boats shown. You will be able to purchase a T-shirt and meal tickets to the Picnic Reception at the Farley Boat Works.

Model Boats

This year we are asking anyone who has built or owns a model boat of any kind to consider displaying it at the show. We will have a specific display area for models.

Oct. 3, 2017: The Port Aransas Wooden Boat Festival has been postponed until April 6-8, 2018. Hotels and facilities will not have sufficiently recovered from Hurricane Harvey to satisfactorily hold the festival on October 20-22. 

Our main sponsor, Farley Boat Works was heavily damaged as well and needs our help. If you have been wondering how you can help with the recovery, please take a minute to donate whatever you can spare to help this great cause. All donations are tax deductible as Farley is a non-profit.
