Mid-Atlantic Small Craft Festival

Location: St. Michaels, Maryland
Dates: Saturday, October 6, 2018

36th Mid-Atlantic Small Craft Festival

Saturday, October 6th: 10am - 5pm


Held at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in historic St. Michaels, Maryland, this is one of the nation’s premier small craft events! Hundreds of amateur and professional boat builders and enthusiasts come from all over the region to display their skiffs, kayaks, and canoes. Take part in demonstrations and workshops, or simply chat with the owners and watch these one-of-a-kind vessels race. Admission to the Maritime Museum gets you into the show.

We're pleased to be back at the Small Craft Festival, a show we've attended since 1994 at least. 

RSVP for this Kayak Demo in Annapolis


The Annapolis Sailboat Show overlaps this festival this year, so we won't have our usual flotilla. However, we'll be bringing some of the sailboats and rowing craft you don't often see on the water, so join us to try PocketShipNanoShip, the Southwester Dory, new Tenderly 10 Dinghy, and the Annapolis Wherry. We'll also bring along our brand-new Oxford Shell Mark II!
