Small-Boat Love-In Enthusiasts from around the region will gather all weekend with their iconic boats to share stories, swap tips, and celebrate.

For Kids The show isn't just for adults...bring the kids to the Kids' Marine Experience Park (Tent M), where it's all about creating, exploring, and learning, while learning about sea creatures and their environment, making nautical crafts, completing a scavenger hunt, and playing with boats in the model pond. Sponsored by Hurricane Island Foundation.

Concours d'Epifanes See fine examples of boats that have been revitalized by talented boatyards and boatbuilders from around the Gulf of Maine. Sponsored by Epifanes.

Live Music The MBH&H Show presents a fine and varied selection of live music on the Bandstand, which is conveniently located in Tent C near the food. It's a great place to take a short break or to meet up with your party. You'll find shelter, chairs to sit in, and best of all, wonderful performers strutting their stuff just for you. Check our our weekend music lineup here.

Demo Docks: Power and Sail Back by popular demand, the Demo Docks are where some fine power and sailing craft will be standing by, at the ready for sea trials. Potential boat owners can make an appointment to climb aboard and experience the ride (and Rockland Harbor) first-hand.
Located on Dock F.

15th Annual World Championship Boatyard Dog® Trials - Sunday, August 13, 10:30 a.m. The excitement is building! The six brave (crazy?) competitors have been chosen for the seriously silly World Championship Boatyard Dog Trials, and they are busy honing their wild and wacky acts to wow the crowd. The 15th annual running of this pawsome event will begin at 10:30 a.m. on the waterfront; gates will open at 9:45. Come cheer on your favorite pooch, but do leave your pets at home, they will not be allowed on show grounds.
