We are BACK and ready to celebrate Wooden Boats!

Here’s a taste of what’s in store:

The Harbor is almost full! Several gorgeous new boats, many festival favorites, and even—gasp—Canadians! Check out the website—boats are being added daily.

For those new to boating and boat ownership:
Three days of presentations dedicated to helping kickstart your life afloat.

For adventurers and their entourages:
A whole new area of Festival with its own Adventure Stage showcasing daring endeavors great and small! 

For makers, craftspeople, artisans, and the people who love them:
A whole area dedicated to fine woodworking, cool tools, crafts, and more! 

For builders and aspiring shipwrights:
The Boatbuilding stage brought to you, once again, by the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding.

For environmentalists and the eco-conscious:
A whole day of Green Boating includes presentations on a range of topics, from materials to systems and beyond, on the Explorer Stage.

For the music-lovers:
Music all day, every day at Bar Harbor—hear old favorites and new discoveries! And, new this year: Live music comes to Wee Nip!

For kids and families:
A redesigned and expanded KIDS COVE—paradise for kids at the Festival with activities including boatbuilding and fish-printing!
