Port Aransas Wooden Boat Festival

A 3 day family friendly event with handcrafted kayaks, paddleboards, skiffs and sailing boats

An annual celebration of our boat-building heritage. The Port Aransas Wooden Boat Festival, which began in 2014, is an annual three-day family friendly event that features handcrafted kayaks, paddleboards, skiffs and sailing boats — as well as historic Farley boats.

The Family boat build is our central main event, where three to four families build a boat in two and a half days, launching the boats after lunch on Sunday.

Our Nautical Market features a variety of vendors, including food, arts and crafts and boat kit vendors.

Other Activities include a wooden boat showcase, speakers, kids’ activities and more. You can even row a boat in the harbor!
