Its the 25th Annual Georgetown Wooden Boat Show!
Saturday, October 18, 2014 from 11 AM – 6 PM / Free Admission
The Georgetown Wooden Boat Show – always held on the third Saturday in October – offers fun for the whole family. The 25th Anniversary show will feature one of our nation’s best wooden boat exhibits with more than 140 classic wooden boats displayed on land and water, a wooden boatbuilding competition, children’s model boatbuilding, knot tying, maritime art and crafts, food and music.
A special attraction will be the 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.
Wooden Boat Show events will take 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, and is the major fundraiser for the South Carolina Maritime Museum.
