LAKE UNION WOODEN BOAT FESTIVAL
SATURDAY JULY 1ST – TUESDAY JULY 4TH: The Wooden Boat Festival is designed to celebrate the maritime heritage of the Northwest, putting tools in hands and getting people out on the water in historic wooden boats. There’s nothing stuffy about the wooden boat festival. This is an old-fashioned, down-home waterfront event where everything is fun and most things are free.
