Welcome to Festival!

Welcome to the largest wooden boat festival in North America, the place where kids and adults alike experience the magic of getting on the water, the beauty of wooden boats, and the richness of our maritime culture. Learn from the experts, swap stories with fellow wooden boat aficionados, and bring your family for a weekend they'll never forget. With so many different ways to adventure out on the water, there's no better opportunity to experience our Victorian seaport from the deck of a stunning wooden schooner or at the oars of a historic replica longboat. Come on down to Point Hudson and experience it all yourself: the boats, the craft, the community, the celebration. This is the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival. Welcome.

Keep Our Sea Plastic Free! We’re stepping up our environmental sustainability efforts for the future of our oceans and the wildlife that depends on them. Click here to learn how you can help.
