We are nearing the 37th annual Classic Boat Festival! A special event, with over 130 boats from around the world, it is a must see. The festival is crammed-pack with several activities going on as well as massive vessels being showcased during the weekend. The festival is just a block away from the hotel; perfect to stop by on the way to any downtown activity!
It all started in 1977 with a small group of people who wanted to replicate the Northwest America ship. However, there was not enough funding available for this to happen. Soon after, a sponsorship was put in place, and the Classic Boat Festival had been created. The first Boat Festival began with 32 boats in the Inner Harbour. Since then, the event has grown into a huge spectacle!
