It’s the 27th Annual Georgetown Wooden Boat Show!

Join us on Saturday, October 15 and Sunday, October 16.  Free admission. 

The Georgetown Wooden Boat Show – held on the third weekend in October – features one of the Southeast’s best wooden boat exhibits with more than 140 classic wooden boats displayed on land and water, children’s model boatbuilding, knot tying, maritime art and crafts, food and music. A special attraction is Saturday’s Wooden Boat Challenge when teams of two race to build a rowing skiff within a 4-hour time limit and then test their boats for seaworthiness in a rowing relay on the Sampit River. Sunday is a fun-filled family oriented day that includes a Cardboard Boat Building Challenge and Race, and an Opti Pram Regatta.

The Wooden Boat Show takes place on the waterfront and along Front Street in Historic Downtown Georgetown. The Show is produced by the Harbor Historical Association, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. All proceeds benefit the South Carolina Maritime Museum.
