-2017 Vendors, Artists, Artisans-

Here is an updated look at the Vendors, Artists and Artisans of The 30th Anniversary Antique & Classic Boat Festival and The Arts at Navy Point. Please take a look and check out their websites. There is a wide variety of talent, expertise and there are wonderful things here. With 18 new people this year, we are also seeing some old friends who haven't been in a while. New applications are still coming in. Check the list again for further updates. This is a juried show. Every vendor in our show must relate in some way to boats, the water, life around the water, or water wildlife. Many bring things that extend beyond that realm as well. Although it might seem strange to see people selling outboard motors next to those selling fine paintings or to see the worlds finest carvers in the same tent with some of the country's finest boat restorers you'll see that it is a wonderful mix and full of pleasant surprises. There are a lot of reasons that we draw people from throughout the US. and Canada. Come see for yourself.
