After nine great shows, the Toledo Antique & Classic Boat Show will look significantly different this year. With lots of exciting changes in Toledo’s downtown, this will be a “regrouping year” for the event staff as we integrate with the dynamic of the urban waterfront culture. This year’s show will function more like a “cruise-in” than the full, two-day weekend extravaganza local boating enthusiasts have come to know and love and will feature primarily in-water boats. Land display space is limited, please inquire in advance if you are considering land display. Due to construction, we will not be featuring classic cars this year.
Saturday, August 27th
10:00am – 4:30pm
The Promenade Park and Docks in downtown Toledo, between the Cherry St. Bridge and the historic steam plant (currently being renovated).
Loading and Unloading
Access to the grounds for loading and unloading is via Water street. Take Walnut Street off of Summit Street towards the river. Turn right at Water Street and proceed under the Cherry Street Bridge. Vehicles must unload and exit the grounds prior to 10:00am.
There is no fee for registration, but we encourage owners of antique & classic boats to print out the waiver on the “Register” page and email or mail it to us ahead of time. If we do not receive one, you will be asked to sign it when you arrive. Boaters with antique and classic boats are encouraged to dock and enjoy the show for as long as they like, but are not required to stay for the duration. If you are set up on land, you must be set up before 10:00am and remain set up until at least 4:30pm.
Although this will be a much more casual event, we encourage all to join us; take a walk along the changing Toledo waterfront, enjoy some local food, listen to live music, and take in the beautiful classic boats. For boaters, if you have a vintage boat, we’d encourage you to stop by the show for as long as you like, show off your pride and joy, and enjoy the fellowship with other boating enthusiasts. If you have additional questions, check our Facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org. See you on August 27th!
