33rd Vancouver Wooden Boat Festival


Come join us for three days of fun filled, free, family adventure. Reconnect with Vancouver’s rich marine heritage and enjoy the beauty and craft of wooden boats at this year’s 2020 Vancouver Wooden Boat Festival on Granville Island.

Ever wondered what it’s like to be on a wooden boat? Boat owners from around North America participate at the Vancouver Wooden Boat Festival to ‘Welcome you aboard!’

Ever wondered how and where wooden boats are built? Builders from throughout the lower mainland join the festival to provide workshops and showcase demos on the craft of wooden boatbuilding. Whether it's the paddle build challenge or canoe building demo or the Children’s Boatbuilding Adventure Festival, try your hand at a build.

Back by popular demand is the ‘I built it myself’ area featuring individuals who have built their boats in garages and backyards. Come and ask your questions.
