Toledo Wooden Boat Show

The 2010 show celebrated the Port’s centennial year – and it was the best show yet!

The Sixth Annual Port of Toledo Wooden Boat Show was held August 20 – 22, 2010. The Port of Toledo Wooden Boat Show, held annually, is an old-fashioned, down-home style waterfront festival where everything is enjoyable and nothing much is fancy! It is as genuinely grassroots American as you can get. First held in 2005, the first Wooden Boat Show coincided with the City of Toledo’s Centennial Celebration.

August weather is fantastic for a boat show and the Wooden Boat Show showcases vintage and new wooden boats at Port Dock One! The finest boat builders in the Pacific Northwest come to exhibit their work and demonstrate their craft. Live music and food from various vendors along with events for the entire family make this a festival not to be missed. Local artisans line the walk to exhibit and sell their works and crafts.

This year there were two beautifully restored 16’ Calkins Craft at the show.  These boats were built throughout the 1950’s in Delake Oregon in a warehouse located on the East side of highway 101 directly across from Kylo’s restaurant. Both Calkins Craft owners claimed their boat spent considerable time on Devils Lake in its previous life.
