Great Lakes Boating Festival: CANCELLED

Published: Thursday, April 16, 2020

Great Lakes Boating Festival vendors and supporters,

Based on the current conditions in the state of Michigan with COVID-19 virus and the status of this pandemic we find it necessary to Cancel the Boat Show at the GPYC scheduled for May 15-17. At this time, it would be difficult to expect a gathering of a large number of folks in mid-May even as the incidents of this virus may be declining.

We have been hopeful that the conditions would improve such that we could continue to have the outdoor boating event but it would appear that this will not be possible. We do not have an option to move it due to the Club boat wells being at full capacity for the summer months. In the fall, there is the Metro Boat show scheduled for mid-September.

I will begin the process of returning the Show fees to the vendors who have made deposits. Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to the 2021 Boat Show.

The Keels n Wheels party and fundraiser has been rescheduled to July 24, 2020.

Our Calendar is set for 2021 for the Boat show Dates to be May 21-23, 2021. We will have current information available on our websites. ( and
