Port of Toledo Wooden Boat Festival
August 17 & 18, 2024
The Port of Toledo's Wooden Boat Festival is an annual event on the third weekend of August in Toledo, Oregon. The Wooden Boat Show is a free, family-friendly festival celebrating Toledo’s boat building heritage. A variety of vessels are on display including classic vessels, unique owner-built boats, as well as the Port’s trio of Teak Lady sailboats. Visitors can admire the craftsmanship of the wooden boats, meet exhibitors, and observe boat building in action. The event is located at the Port’s Marina and Waterfront Park at the end of Toledo’s historic Main Street.
This year's show will highlight Steamboats as we host the Northwest Steam Society's annual steam meet.
The festival features live music at the Waterfront Park Pavilion and showcases local musicians throughout the weekend. Cardboard Boat Races will be on Saturday, come watch or participate by building a boat and competing for the best design, fastest boat, or most spectacular sinking.
Other activities at the festival include Family Boat Building, Kids Toy Boat Building, Poker Paddle, boat rides, kids’ activities, food and vendors booths, and informational and historical exhibits.
The festival has remained a free event through support of our generous community sponsors. We are currently seeking sponsors for this year's event. Click here for more information regarding sponsorship.
