The 39th Wooden Boat Festival will take place September 11, 12 and 13, 2015.  Join us!

Our annual Festival is the most educational and inspiring wooden boat event in the world.

  • 300 boats on land and water
  • 120 presentations
  • Dozens of exhibitors
  • Live music all day, every day
  • Food court & local beers and wine


Want to be a part of the Festival?  Register now to volunteer!  We welcome volunteers of all skills and we need helpers year-round.  Posts might include time before, during or after the Festival. Positions include administration, poster distribution, main gate, grounds, docks, ramps, parking, traffic, Bar Harbor, and retail.

There is a mandatory volunteer orientation 1 week before the Festival; you can learn more about volunteer positions available at that time.

While you can choose to work as many shifts as you like, working three 4-hour shifts will earn you FREE admission to all 3 days of the Festival, a “CREW” t-shirt with Festival logo, and an invitation to the Volunteer Thank You party.
