Festival Highlights Harbor Side Wooden Boat Display Wooden boats and watercraft blanket campus all weekend long as boat builders and wooden boat enthusiasts gather and share insight about their watercraft. Register to display your boat!
Boats-to-Tools Auction The auction serves as a great resource for boat owners and enthusiasts, tool collectors and the ‘do-it-yourselfer’ to find a new home. In turn, your participation in the auction is a great way to support North House Folk School’s educational efforts. In 2010 almost 400 items were on the block!
Wooden Boat Speaker Series Watch, listen, be inspired. The adventurous and spirited journeys of sailors, boat builders and canoeists converge for two days of inspirational presentations. More than a dozen presentations to choose from!
A Community of Handcraft Witness skilled traditional craft artisans as they join as a community over the weekend to celebrate the process of craft. Demonstrators will be on hand Friday-Saturday, welcoming your curiosity, questions and interest.
Lake Superior Chowder Experience Smoky steelhead, salsa corn, walleye and clam…combined with freshly baked breads from North House’s wood-fired oven, a North Shore culinary event not to be missed.
Steam Bent Brunch Share stories, smile together, eat well. Boat builders, North House members, instructors and friends of North House gather to share a meal together during the Wooden Boat Show & Summer Solstice Festival. Enjoy a ‘Sunday-Style’ brunch catered by our good neighbors, The Pie Place. Download a reservation form here.
