Event Description

Summer’s arrival in the North deserves to be celebrated! The Wooden Boat Show features craft demonstrations, community food events, speakers, kids activities and of course, wooden boats as we celebrate the summer solstice. In 2023, the event includes an extra special birthday celebration with our friends from Sätergläntan Institute for Slöjd and Handcraft Community as they celebrate 100 years of handcraft education. A delegation of Swedish craft teachers from the school will join us for coursework, demonstrations and naturally, cake! Expect updates on the schedule of events throughout the winter months, with a full schedule posted in mid-May.
