Wooden Boat Show
The event is a free, family-friendly festival celebrating Toledo’s boat building heritage. An assortment of vessels will be on display including classic vessels, unique owner-built boats, as well as the Port’s trio of Teak Lady sailboats.
Attendees can admire the craftsmanship of the wooden boats, meet exhibitors, and observe boat building in action. This year the festival will be making a splash at the featured event, the GP Containerboard Boat Contest, challengers compete to design the best and fastest water-worthy boat from cardboard. Live music on both days of the festival features local artists with Curtis Salgado headlining Saturday, after the containerboard boat races. Other activities at the festival include Family Boat Building, Kids Toy Boat Building, Poker Paddle and boat rides, kids’ activities, food, vendors booths, as well as informational and historical exhibits.
