36th Annual Antique & Classic Boat Festival

  • Brewer Hawthorne Cove Marina 10 White Street Salem, MA, 01970 United States (map)

You don’t get to see boats like this every day!  See a wonderful variety of rare vintage motor yachts and sailboats from 1900-1960s.  Meet skippers and crews and vote for your favorite boats.  Children get to make their own wee boat, and all can board real ones.  Boat rides, crafts market, artists, old-time band music, the Blessing of the Fleet and more!

Boats don’t have to be in show condition; they can be works-in-progress (aren’t they all!).  The spirit of the Festival is to gather together the grand old craft and all who love them.

August 25-26, 2018  (Sat., 11 am-5 pm; Sun., 11 am-3 pm)

$5, children under 12 free
