Depoe Bay is between Newport and Lincoln City on the Oregon coast. The show is held down by the harbor. Turn at the stoplight on Hwy.101 just north of the bridge. Additional parking is available by the launch ramp, down the first road on the east side of the highway south of the bridge.

Many of us will arrive Friday afternoon. Around 5:30 we'll go up to the Spouting Horn restaurant for a group dinner upstairs.

Boats may be exhibited either on land or in the water. There's some room for indoor displays of models and other crafts, and slide or video presentations, in the garage of Dockside Charters. Exhibitors can sleep aboard their boats, and primitive camping and RV parking is allowed for exhibitors in the city park near the launch ramp. Email boat show organizer Michael Granat for more information or to register your boat(s) and or exhibit(s) (free).

Here are some photos from festivals past.
