Wooden Boat Show & Summer Solstice Festival

June 21 - June 23

Rows of hand-made and unique watercraft, a boat parade, craft demonstrations, an evening square dance, boat and tool auction, chowder and brats…there’s a bit of everything during North House Folk School’s Wooden Boat Show and Summer Solstice Festival. Try your hand at a workshop or course; be inspired by the stories of boat builders, sailors and travelers and plan your next adventure. Join us as we welcome the summer season in the best way possible: talking boats, celebrating community and hanging out on the shores of Lake Superior.

This year’s Featured Speaker on Sunday, June 23 will be Douglas Brooks, returning by popular demand with fresh stories from his time in Japan studying with traditional boat builders. His talk, Ways of Learning: An Apprentice Boat Builder in Japan will be at 12:30 on Sunday, and he will teach and demonstrate throughout the weekend.
