Big Little Boat Festival 2023

May 13, 2023


Chesapeake Light Craft’s annual Spring rendezvous, once known as “OkoumeFest,” will be at Conquest Beach on the Chester River. Conquest Beach is situated in a 758-acre nature reserve between the Chester and Corsica Rivers. It is about an hour east of our Annapolis shop. The beach has easy access for small boats on dollies and plenty of shade on shore. The facility includes camping, two bath houses with showers, plenty of parking, and and a killer view of a lovely, protected river. The event is free and open to the public.

Our rowing, sailing, and paddling fleet will be available for on-water demos. Under the pavilion, we will have boatbuilding seminars. The kids’ cardboard boatbuilding event at last year’s BLBF was a huge hit and will return this year. We encourage all our boatbuilder friends to bring their boats to play with and/or enter the Boatbuilding Contest. Bring your boat, show off your hard work, and hopefully, you will win a prize!
