Bay Harbor In-Water Boat Show

June 16th-18th, 2023

The Bay Harbor In-Water Boat Show kicks off the summer season in northern Michigan as it’s typically held in mid-June over Father’s Day Weekend. This event gives attendees the opportunity to check out the latest in watercraft, boating accessories, and more. The show times are generally Friday from 12-8pm, Saturday from 10am-8pm, and Sunday from 10am-3pm.

In addition to the in-water exhibitors, there are diverse land displays featured on the lawns in the Village. Many marinas and boat shops display a variety of watercraft. In 2022, on-land exhibitors included LSV’s from True North Golf Cart, Moke Vehicles from Charlevoix Auto, luxury RVs from Terry Town RV, and even a helicopter. 

The event is family friendly as kids can take a spin on the Tiki Island obstacle course and there is generally live music. Admission and parking for the boat show are free of charge.
