Join the Virtual Wooden Boat Festival, Sept 12, 2020

Wooden Boat Festival is all about sharing our stories from the past year(s), and the Virtual Festival is no different. For the Virtual Festival, not only do we have special content created just for you, we will also feature stories from the wooden boat community—stories about your boats, your adventures, your shops, and your COVID builds.

Boat Tours

Are you bummed that you can't show off your boat at the festival this year? Maybe you live too far away to ever bring your boat to Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival. THIS IS YOUR CHANCE! It's easy, AND FREE!

We will be accepting boat video tours from anyone that submits them, and if it's somewhat decent (you don’t drop the camera), you will be part of our first ever Virtual Wooden Boat Festival! It’s going to be a blast! You will want to be part of this. Show us your boat. Tell us why you love it, or why you don't! Feel free to share if it's for sale.

  1. Fill out the Boat Tours application and sign the media release.
  2. Once submitted, you will get an email with the link for submitting your video in dropbox
  3. Submit your video to dropbox via the link in your application email

Host a Zoom Room

Zoom rooms are a fun way to engage with people—just like at the in-person Wooden Boat Festival. You can do so much with Zoom rooms—give a mini presentation, play music, host a happy hour on the aft deck of your boat, or coffee in the morning, or talk about your boat and answer questions. It's also a great way to engage people if you have a boat for sale.

Some things to know:
  • You will host the Zoom call off your computer.
  • Wooden Boat Festival will not be able to help manage your Zoom call.
  • We recommend having someone help you manage the chat functions and any Q&A.
  • You choose the time and duration of your call!
  • Your Zoom room will be promoted with the time and link on the Virtual Festival website.
Here is how to sign up!
  1. Fill out the application with your topic, time, etc.
  2. Get your Zoom skills fine tuned.
  3. Host the call at the time you set up.
