GENERAL INFORMATION:

The Sunnyland Antique Boat Festival is in its 39th year and is the largest classic wood boat show in the US.  Our footprint is over a third of a mile long and we usually have 250 to 300 boats on display.  Our gate attracts 8 to 10 thousand people and there is literally something for everyone at our event.  Our Nautical Flea Market has more than 80 vendors with many hard to find marine parts for sale.  We will have several stunning outboard motors on display as well as numerous race boats.  Our annual event is in conjunction with spring break and is the kick-off show for the boating season.  People from all over the US attend our show and we have representation from over 26 different states.  We have several corporate sponsors that make our show a success and they offer may marine products to include new and restored vintage boats.

Visitors are encouraged to stop by the SCAMPY Tent to view the work of the kids and mentors will be present for boat building efforts.  While there, please check out the many items for sale that were donated to support the program.

The Sunnyland Chapter is the largest Chapter in the Antique and Classic Boat Society (ACBS) and represents the entire State of Florida.  We have over 500 members and the entire show is run with volunteer help.

This is our 39th Anniversary Show.  We started in Sanford, moved to Mount Dora and for the past 12 years, the show has been in Tavares.  This is a historical event for the Sunnyland Chapter.  Please plan to join us for fun in the sun.
