Wooden Boat Festival 2021 has been canceled due to COVID-19.

It’s with heavy hearts that, despite our best efforts, we have canceled this year’s Wooden Boat Festival. Click here to read our full update.


Music ties the Festival together. We welcome a variety of acts to play throughout the festival weekend. We try to maintain a balance between well-loved, long-time festival favorites, and a few new acts each year. Performing at Wooden Boat Festival is about being a part of this great event, and the rewards are many… but not necessarily monetary. If you’re interested in performing and being a part of this wonderful event for the fun and joy (and a little money) we would love to have you!

Time slots are very limited, so get your name in the hat early!

2022 Application Opens in Spring 2022

Ready to Apply?

You will need:

  • A short description of your act and the music you play
  • A sample of your work—either a link to your website or YouTube video, or an MP3 file
  • List of your equipment needs
  • A photo of your group

Venue Options

Due to COVID, venues are changing.

We are working with Public Health to create a fun and safe Festival. We are uncertain at this point which venues we can get permitted for music—it could include new venues that we are excited about!

Know that music is a priority, and so is your health and safety, as well as everyone’s at Festival.
