White Bear Lake

Classic & Vintage Boat Show



The 13th Annual White Bear Lake Classic & Vintage Boat Show and Swap Meet will be held Saturday, June 23rd from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on the lakefront of the White Bear Shopping Center, located at White Bear Avenue and Highway 61, White Bear Lake. 

There is no entry fee to participate in the Boat Show or Swap Meet.

This year we expect up to 65 classic wooden, fiberglass and aluminum boats of all kinds, as well as tent and table top displays of boating related memorabilia, including boat parts and other marine related items that will be available for sale. 

Featured this year will be the Gopher Chapter of the Antique and Outboard Motor Club, Inc. (AOMCI) In 1866, the first outboard device was patented.  AOMCI is a world-wide, non-profit organization devoted to people who are interested in antique outboards, their preservation and their restoration.  Come and see the incredible old boats and motors of AOMCI’s Gopher Chapter.

Visit White Bear's Maritime Community Room adjacent to the Boat Show in the Boat Works Commons.   The room features historic exhibits and artifacts commemorating the boat building era in White Bear Lake, including an actual Johnson Boatworks C scow to demonstrate detailed construction techniques.

Boat Show visitors can vote for their favorites in several award categories: People's Choice, Favorite Sailboat, Favorite Inboard, Favorite Outboard and Favorite Paddle/Rowboat.  The awards ceremony will be held at 3:00 p.m. on the stage at Admiral D’s Waterfront Tavern.

Besides the Boat Show and Swap Meet there will be an Arts & Crafts Fair of 25 artisans at the White Bear Shopping Center, live music and several food and drink options.
