General information:

The Sunnyland antique boat festival is in its 37th year and is the largest antique and classic wood boat show in the United States. Our footprint is over a third of a mile long and we usually have 250 to 300 boats on display. Our gate attracts 8 to 10 thousand people and there is literally something for everyone at our event.

The nautical flea market has more than 80 vendors with many hard to find marine parts for sale. We will have several stunning outboard motors on display as well as numerous race boats.

The Sunnyland annual event is in conjunction with spring break as is the kick-off show for the boating season. People from over 26 different states and Canada exhibit. We have several corporate sponsors that make our show a success and they offer many marine products to include new and restored vintage boats.

The Sunnyland chapter is the largest chapter in the ANTIQUE AND CLASSIC BOAT SOCIETY (ACBS) and represents the entire state of Florida. We have over 500 members and the entire show is run with volunteer help.

This is our 37th anniversary show and each year our show gets bigger and better. We started in Sanford, moved to Mount Dora and for the past 11 years the show has been in Tavares. This is a historical event for the Sunnyland chapter, please plan to join us for fun in the sun.
