Join us on Saturday, October 18, 2014 for the 25th Annual Georgetown Wooden Boat Show.
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 the nation’s best wooden boat exhibits with more than 130 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 located in Georgetown.
The Georgetown Wooden Boat Show is the winner of the 2014 Charles A. Bundy Award, an award that recognizes contributions to rural tourism in South Carolina.
