When you arrive at the Port’s marina, you will be directed to the appropriate moorage.
A ride back to the launch ramp to pick up your vehicle can be coordinated with volunteers at the boathouse, or by contacting Staff at the Port Booth. You can also call port staff at 541-336- 5207.
If you are displaying your vessel in the parking lot,please enter the Marina parking from Butler Bridge Road, 367 SE Butler Bridge Road. (At Yaquina Boat Equipment, across street from Cobblestone Pizza). You will be directed to an appropriate display area. Please be considerate of other exhibitors and vendors as you set up and move your vehicle to event parking as soon as it is feasible.
Please check in at the Port Booth, either in person or call 541-336-5207. You will receive your Exhibitor packet which includes an Exhibitor name badge and your laminated Exhibitor Information placard.
- Please wear your badge at all times. It identifies you as one of the people who make the Wooden Boat Show a great event. Additional name badges are available at the Port Booth if needed.
- A laminated Exhibitor Information placard is based on the information you have provided. It is intended to be displayed where visitors can easily read it when you are not available to answer questions. The placard can be hung with the twine provided, or if preferred, painters tape is available at the Port booth.
- Exhibitor Hours: (You are not required to be at your boat during these hours.)
Saturday, August 20: 10:00 am - 7:00 pm
Sunday, August 21: 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
Security will be on the premises overnight from Friday through Sunday evening.
If you have a large craft and allow visitors aboard, be prepared to provide a walk-aboard gangway and assistance to visitors to safely come aboard.
Small craft taking passengers out for informal slough/river tours (and we hope you will!) should provide enough life jackets and obey all other US Coast Guard regulations. There are also life jackets available at the Boathouse.
For safety, please do NOT move your vessel in or out during scheduled in-water activities and observe a “NO WAKE” zone at the marina.
Food: There are food concessions at the Wooden Boat Show.

We can’t think of anything else, but if you need anything during the festival, call us at 541-336-5207. Thank you for being a part of our show.
