Apalachicola is a town with a difference. Best known for its dedicated oyster fishing, on Saturday, April 20, it’ll be known for its watercraft.
During the 15th Annual Antique & Classic Boat Show, when you come to this uniquely Florida town, you’ll see incredibly beautiful classic boats, home-built traditional craft, collections of antique outboard motors, and even antique and classic automobiles.
Here’s what else they’ll have in store for you:
- The classic, gaff-rigged schooner, the Governor Stone. Built in 1877, it’s a National Historic Landmark.
- Boat building demonstrations
- Authentic oyster boats
- Kids' model-boat building and art activities
- The Apalachicola Traders’ Canoe, a hand-built 50-foot long vessel used between 1750-1850, recovered from the Apalachicola River.
- The Studebaker Car Club
- Marine art painting exhibition
- St. Petersburg Shanty Singers with history and maritime music linked to the Apalachicola River and Bay
