34th Annual Antique & Classic Boat Festival and The Arts at Navy Point,
June 17 @ 10:00 am - June 19 @ 5:00 pm| $6 – $65
ST. MICHAELS, MD – Families looking for something special to do with dad on Father’s Day weekend need look no further than the 34th Annual Antique & Classic Boat Festival and The Arts at Navy Point, to take place June 17-19 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
Traditionally held on Father’s Day weekend at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) in St. Michaels, the show is one of the largest classic boat shows in the Mid-Atlantic region. This year’s theme is “Built on the Chesapeake.”
Organizers with The Antique & Classic Boat Society (ACBS)-Chesapeake Bay Chapter plan to feature Chesapeake Bay-built boats (Trumpy, Owens, Ancarrow, Carlisle, etc.) as well as other marque classic boats, such as cruisers, runabouts and racers. Wood as well as pre-1997 fiberglass and metal boats will be displayed both in water and on land. There also will be a Field of Dreams for those who are looking to own one of these beauties.
Families can stroll the 18-acre CBMM campus to view these extraordinary boats and talk with their captains; visit The Arts at Navy Point, a nautical-themed juried arts and crafts tent; or purchase mouth-watering food items or beverages for adults and kids. Visitors can also learn about Chesapeake Bay history and culture in exhibition buildings throughout CBMM’s scenic, waterfront campus.
Owners of boats in all phases of restoration in the following classes are invited to participate in the show: historic (up to 1918), antique (1919-1942), classic (1943-1975), late classic (1976-1997) and contemporary (any wooden boat). Register online before June 1 at www.chesapeakebayacbs.org.
