Lakeside Wooden Boat Show
The annual Lakeside Wooden Boat Show features nearly 70 boats spanning historic to contemporary classes. The categories include: historic (prior to 1918), antique (1919-1942), classic (1943-1975), early contemporary (1976-1984) and late contemporary (over 30 years old). The sizes of the wooden boats featured range from 9’ to 57’. A variety of vendors, restaurants, and shopping are available as well at the show and in charming downtown Lakeside.
In conjunction with the boat show, the Plein Air Art Festival will be taking place throughout the grounds of Lakeside beginning Friday, July 15th. The art festival features over 50 plein air artists, many who create one-of-a-kind paintings of the wooden boats, culminating with a wet paint sale on the 17th.
