A feast for the eyes and festival fun for the entire family!

The festival is filled with spectacular vessels, captivating speakers, and opportunities to row, paddle and sail. The Wooden Boat Festival runs September 5, 6 and 7, with three days of live music and kids activities. Festival hours are 9am to midnight on Friday and Saturday, and 9am to 5pm on Sunday. The weekend culminates with the awe-inspiring “Sail By” at 3pm Sunday.

For those who can’t wait until Friday, Bar Harbor opens to the public Thursday night at 5pm with live music from 5:30 until 10pm.

This year’s festival features more than 250 wooden vessels and dozens of indoor and outdoor presentations and demonstrations. Legends of the sailing and boating world come to share their talents and knowledge with thousands of wooden boat enthusiasts.

With over 50 vendors, see the latest kits for building your own paddleboard, kayak or wooden boat, visit new and old favorites for repair and maintenance, or stroll down Artist’s Way to take in the handmade crafts, clothing and jewelry.
