Musician FAQs

Music ties the festival together. We welcome a variety of acts to play throughout the festival weekend. We try to maintain a balance between well-loved, long-time festival favorites, and a few new acts each year.

Performing at Wooden Boat Festival is about being a part of this great event, and the rewards are many… but not necessarily monetary.  If you’re interested in performing and being a part of this wonderful event for the fun and joy (and a little money) we would love to have you!

Time slots are very limited, so get your name in the hat early!
