Lakeside Wooden Boat Show

 Sunday, July 18, 2021 
12:00pm-4:00pm

A collaborative effort blending the craftsmanship of the Lakeside Wooden Boat Show on July 18 and the artistic expression of the Plein Air Art Festival will create one of Lakeside’s most unique weekends of the summer.

The Lakeside waterfront will transform into an outdoor showroom of classic wooden boats, as cruisers line the lawn of Hotel Lakeside for the 18th Annual Lakeside Wooden Boat Show from 12-4 p.m. More than 70 wooden boats, each classified by the year it was made, will be featured. The boats are categorized as historic (prior to 1918), antique (1919-1942), classic (1943-1975), early contemporary (1976-1984) and late contemporary (past 30 years). The sizes of the wooden boats featured range from 9’ to 57’.

The show is coordinated by the Lakeside Wooden Boat Society. To register a wooden boat, contact Wooden Boat Show Coordinator Mame Drackett at mame@drackett.cc or (239) 776-6205. Registration is free.

Several plein air events will also take place on Sunday. The Plein Air Paintout will be held along the shoreline and in Bettinger Park until 12 p.m.

Paintings that were completed by the plein air artists throughout the weekend will be available for purchase during the Wet Paint Sale, held at 1:30 p.m. south of the Pavilion. Purchases can be made with cash, check or credit card.
