A Classic Small Boat Show will be part of this year’s Belfast Harbor Fest, to be held at Steamboat Landing in Belfast on Saturday, Aug. 20.

Builders and owners of traditional small boats that are trailerable or car-toppable are invited to exhibit and be eligible for awards for boats that showcase the traditions of the region’s maritime heritage and skills.

The show is open to owners and professional and amateur builders of small craft such as sailboats, rowing boats, launches, and other pleasure and working boats. The boats should be under 25 feet in length.

Exhibitors may sell their boats and are encouraged to demonstrate boatbuilding techniques to the public. Commercial boat builders will be charged $25 to exhibit, but there is no charge to exhibit all other boats.

The Belfast Harbor Fest begins Friday night, Aug. 19 with a launch party and live music, sponsored by Marshall Wharf Brewery.

In addition to the Classic Small Boat Show on Aug. 20, there will be a 5K road race, a blueberry pancake breakfast, the National Boatbuilding Challenge, children’s nautical activities, Come Boating!’s 11th annual Regatta, exhibits and vendors, and live music.

On Sunday, Aug. 21, Habitat for Humanity of Waldo County will hold a Habitat Lobster Gala fundraiser. Tickets for lobster or steak, clams, corn on the cob, chips and homemade pies are available by calling the Habitat for Humanity office at 338-2344.
