45th Wooden Boat Festival
Sept 10-12, 2021

Vaccinations are up and cases are down, we are moving into Phase 3 and there is talk of normalcy by July 4th. The sun even came out. We are not in the clear yet, but things are looking better and better. If the pandemic takes a turn for the worse we’ll alter our course, but we are going to lead with optimism and community spirit. Let’s plan on a Festival!
