THE LAKE CHAMPLAIN 30th ANTIQUE AND CLASSIC BOAT SHOW

The Lake Champlain Antique and Classic Boat Society’s 31st Annual Vintage Boat Show returns to the Lake Champlain Maritime Festival. The Boat Show is a hugely popular event, hosting thousands at Burlington’s Boat House. More than forty-five boats are on exhibit from Vermont, New York and as far away as New Jersey, Connecticut and Maine. Exhibits in most cases are planned by boat manufacture and/or by type of boat. The Lake Champlain Chapter practices skipper judging with judges and skippers voting for their favorite boat in their respective class (Cruiser, Outboard, Utility, Runabout, Sail and more) and during the course of the day boat owners will be available to answer any questions. Attendees have the opportunity to vote for the People’s Choice Award with ballots available at the registration tent.

“What really makes The Lake Champlain Maritime Festival special is that it offers something for everyone; it is a dynamic celebration for children, families and adults of all ages. Stay tuned for other exciting Festival events that are in the works!” says Tara Perkins, Festival Spokesperson and Director of Public Relations.
