Sandpoint City Boardwalk, Sandpoint Marina

An event of the Inland Empire Chapter Antique & Classic Boat Society, the setting for this annual show is perfectly lovely. The beautiful wooden and classic boats are docked all down the boardwalk running along Sand Creek right in downtown Sandpoint. You can stroll through the boats and then venture up to the excellent eclectic shops in downtown Sandpoint. There is a Farmers Market that is a very short walk from the show, our town's truly excellent lakefront park at City Beach, many fine restaurants scattered about and an always-busy Sandpoint calendar of events to complement the show.
