Boaters and boat lovers throughout the Northwest are familiar with boat shows – they’re lots of fun and provide a peek into everything boating related. If you’re looking for boat shows near Seattle this summer, be sure to make plans to attend the La Conner Classic Boat Show on August 10th.
There will be classic yachts, working boats and collector boats, plus classic cars and motorcycles – all on view during the event. The event takes place at the north end of La Conner’s business district and along the Swinomish Channel; the boats will be moored along the La Conner Marina guest dock (F dock) and the motorized vehicles will be in the marina parking lot.
Admission price is only $3.00 and children under 12 are free!
This is truly a family-friendly event – first thing in the morning is the Pancake Breakfast ($7, 7:30am-10am), hosted by the La Conner Retirement Inn; proceeds go to the La Conner Sunrise Food Bank. Follow the smell of freshly cooking pancakes – you’ll find them at 204 N. First Street, inside the Retirement Inn.
During the day, visit the many vendor and exhibitor booths and be sure to check out the terrific raffle prizes on display.
If you’re coming by boat and wish to stay at the Marina guest docks, G dock will be available; make your reservations soon as space fills up quickly. If you’re planning to spend the night in one of our hotels or inns, see our online reservation system to make reservations.
