The Leacock Museum National Historic Site and the Orillia Heritage Centre are partnering to bring The Leacock Vintage Boat Festival to the historic grounds at Old Brewery Bay from July 12 to 14, 2019.
The festival, which presents a fascinating collection of old watercrafts, runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, with each of the three days focusing on a different theme.
On Friday, July 12, visiting boats, canoes, and paddle boards are invited to use the temporary dock at the Leacock Museum’s boathouse; docking will not be available on Saturday and Sunday. Friday will feature canoes and propeller boats made in Orillia.
On Saturday, July 13, view several Dispro or “disappearing propeller” watercrafts, alongside storytelling and demonstrations (weather dependent).
On Sunday, July 14, view special vintage watercrafts made in Orillia and the Muskokas such as Hunters, Egloffs, Ross boats and more. Make sure to pack a picnic basket and join us for lunch on Sunday.
There is no admission fee for the event, but donations will be accepted. For more information, visit orilliaheritage.com.
