Reconnect with Vancouver’s rich marine heritage and enjoy the beauty and craft of wooden boats at this year’s 2019 Vancouver Wooden Boat Festival on Granville Island. Ever wondered what it’s like on a wooden boat? Boat Owners from around North America participate at the Vancouver Wooden Boat Festival to ‘Welcome you aboard!' Come on board and explore the boats. Experience what it is like to be on board. Ever wonder how and where wooden boats are built? Builders from throughout the lower mainland join the festival to provide workshops and showcase demo’s on the craft of wooden boat building. Whether it's the Paddle build challenge or canoe building demo or the Children’s Boat Building 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.
