Living Green Olympia: Wooden Boat Fair in Olympia This Weekend

Wooden Boat Fair in Olympia This Weekend

Wooden Boat Festival in Olympia

Wooden Boat Fair is in downtown Olympia this weekend - just in time for Mother's Day!  Saturday May 7th & Sunday May 8th, these beautiful classic wooden boats will be moored in Budd Inlet, ready to be admired.  Many of them offer the chance to climb aboard and pretend you are cruising along the open water.  And there will also be craft booths and food set up nearby, so you can stroll along and enjoy the boats and the other goodies.

The weather forecast indicates we may have "sunbreaks" too!  Before living in the Pacific Northwest, I don't know that I had ever heard of "sunbreaks" - but they are just what they sound like - in the midst of an otherwise drizzly, cloudy day they are moments of the sun breaking through to light up the day and bring out the smiles.

Happy Mother's Day - and come check out the Wooden Boat Fair in Olympia as part of your treat for your mom - it's free!!

That must be amazing, wooden boats are so beautiful and so much extra work.  True labor of love.

Nancy, the wooden boat fair sounds like fun!  If I lived in the area I would definately be going, grab some food and admire the beauty of all the wooden boats on display.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend, thank you for sharing.  --Krystal

Great news. The last wooden boat show I went to was in Lake Tahoe. A work of art and true craftsmanship. Especially the Thunderbird, a true beauty.

I love the way those old boats sound.  Their engines are amazing.  I had a friend who owned a boat, not wooden but a fine little craft.

With all of our lakes plus the salt water, boats of all types are all over the South Sound area - but the wooden boats just have a certain special charm...
