Now in its second year, the Oregon Martime Museums (OMM), RiversWest Small Craft Center (RiversWest) and the Willamette Sailing Club (WSC) will team up to produce the Wooden Boat Festival & Family Boatbuild, July 6, 7 and 8. Taking place at the WSC clubhouse, docks and adjacent lots, this community-wide, family-friendly celebration of small-wooden watercraft draws hundreds of novices and aficionados from throughout the region, and features: family boatbuilding; antique wooden boats; sailing, rowing demonstrations and workshops; arts, crafts and food booths; and educational and interpretive displays and activities for families.

Last year, more than 1,700 people attended this fun, family event, with ten groups/families building and launching their wooden skiffs.
