Make a splash at the Port of Toledo’s Wooden Boat Show. Located in Toledo, Oregon, this annual event is on the third weekend of August. The Wooden Boat Show is a free, family-friendly festival celebrating Toledo’s boat building heritage. A variety of vessels will be 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.
This year’s featured event is the GP Containerboard Boat Contest! Challengers compete to design the best and fastest water-worthy boat from cardboard and test their designs on the water starting at 2:00 pm on Saturday.
An exciting variety of live music at the Waterfront Park Pavilion showcases local artists as well as musicians from Portland. Award-winning soul, blues and R&B vocalist Curtis Salgado will perform on Saturday with The Sonny Hess Band featured on Sunday afternoon.
Other activities at the festival include Family Boat Building, Kids Toy Boat Building, Poker Paddle and boat rides, kids’ activities, food and vendors booths, and informational and historical exhibits.
The event is located at the Port’s Marina and Waterfront Park at the end of Toledo’s historic Main Street.
