Hello

A San Diego Father’s Day weekend tradition, the San Diego Wooden Boat Festival is the premier annual event for Southern California wooden boat enthusiasts and provides a rare opportunity for the general public to view some of the most beautiful and well maintained wooden crafts up close. While this event features mostly well preserved vintage vessels there are also plenty of new crafts that have been handcrafted with skill and meticulous detail.

The weekend festivities include live music, food, a variety of booths, activities for children and a raffle with a large assortment of valuable items donated from local businesses.  Proceeds from the weekend will benefit the local Sea Scouts.

Many vessels will be open to the public for on board viewing. Please note that all attendees will be required to remove their shoes before boarding any boat. We ask that you tread lightly as many of the wooden boats in the festival are very old boats.
