White Bear Lake

Classic & Vintage Boat Show



The 15th Annual White Bear Lake Classic & Vintage Boat Show and Swap Meet will be held Saturday, June 20th from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm on the lakefront of the White Bear Shopping Center, located at White Bear Avenue and Highway 61, White Bear Lake. 

We are only a few months away from the show and even though winter is still with us we are well underway with the plans for this year's event!

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

This year we expect up to 50 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. 

The "Featured Display" this year will hopefully be the fully restored Queen Mary, a 38 foot motorized cruiser that was built in 1938 by Johnson Boat Works for the family's own use.  After a two year restoration we plan to have her on display and in the water for this year's boat show.

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 3:15 p.m. on the stage at Admiral D’s Waterfront Tavern.
