March 13 -- Maritime Lecture Series: SS Milwaulkee Clipper featuring speaker Ray Hilt, Curator
38th Annual Antique & Classic Boat Show
June 15, 2019
10am – 4pm
The Antique & Classic Boat Show celebrates all kinds of boat types from wood and fiberglass to power and paddle and is one of the oldest and most popular of its kind in the region. The family-friendly event features a variety of boats including Chris Crafts, Centuries, strip-built boats, dinghies, canoes, sailboats, and much more! Kids’ toy boat-building and demonstrations make this event a real hands-on experience for all ages. Our aim is to help perpetuate the building, restoration, and use of classic boats and small craft and to give participants and the public an entertaining and informative learning experience.
The show is now in its 38th year and the Michigan Maritime Museum is honored to take the reins from the previous sponsors, the Traditional Small Craft Association. We hope to continue their wonderful legacy of showcasing classic and small craft as well as the people who love and care for these vessels.
Cost for the show is $10 for adults and $5 for kids (under 3 free). Museum members are free. The cost includes the show and admission to all Michigan Maritime Museum exhibits.
