Our Guide to the Catawba Island Boat Show

There’s plenty to look forward to from this year’s show—and we’re breaking down some of the key highlights in today’s blog.
A taste of the sailing lifestyle
We know that many of our readers are devout power boaters, but have you ever wanted a taste of the sailing lifestyle? At this year’s show, you can see what it’s all about by enjoying free sailboat rides offered by Harbor North. If you’re usually the one captaining your boat trips, this is a unique opportunity to kick back and relax while you experience the water from a passenger’s perspective.
It wouldn’t be a boat show without some amazing live entertainment! Steve Brownell—singer, songwriter and, frequent visitor to the island himself—will be providing show guests with engaging performances each day of the show.
Beer and wine tasting
Great Lakes Brewery and Catawba Island Brewery will be on site Saturday and Sunday, respectively, to provide their latest flavors. The best part of the event? Proceeds from the tasting will be used to fund scholarships from the Lake Erie Marine Trades Association—or LEMTA—Educational Foundation. When you indulge at this year’s show, you’ll be doing something great for the local community—which is something to feel good about!
Gear, services and fun from local exhibitors
Don’t forget about the great exhibitors who will be present at this year’s show. Whether you’re looking for new gear, local services, real estate or simply a fun way to interact with local boaters, be sure to browse through the more-than-30 exhibitors who will be in attendance.
Local boating excursions
Of course, while you’re in the area, you can’t miss a local boating excursion opportunity! One of our favorite spots is Catawba Island State Park, where you can fish, swim, enjoy a picnic and boat on the beautiful Lake Erie.
