Wooden Boat Show & Summer Solstice Festival

Rows of hand-made and unique watercraft, a boat parade, craft demonstrations, an evening square dance, boat and tool auction, chili and brats...there’s a bit of everything during our Wooden Boat Show and Summer Solstice Festival. Try your hand at a workshop or course; be inspired by the stories of boat builders, sailors and travelers; plan your next adventure. Join us as we welcome the summer season in the best way possible: talking boats, celebrating community and hanging out on the shores of Lake Superior.

FEATURED SPEAKER: Martha Green Phillips, author of Border Country, the Northwoods Canoe Journals of Howard Greene, 1906 - 1916.
