More than just a show, the 2015 Vancouver Wooden Boat Festival on Granville Island, Vancouver will feature a floating exhibition of wooden boats, displays, hands-on boatbuilding and demonstrations, including knot tying and marlinspike seamanship.
Hear some sea shanties (and sing along) or join in the workshops, listen to First Nations maritime storytellers, explore a replica of an 18th century Spanish long boat and far more including on-site wooden boatbuilding.
The festival runs from 1000 to 1700 hours each day, August 27-30, 2015 and admission is free.
