THE 41st Niagara Frontier Antique & Classic Boat show

Looking forward to the 41st Annual Niagara Frontier Antique & Classic Boat show ………..


‘Oh say can you see ….Oh Canada!!! This year we welcome our “shared water friends “from Canada .

We will be featuring Canadian built boats. The infamous “Cottage Country” of Canada with its many Lakes and waterways has shared the history of fine wooden boat building with the world and we are honored to feature the well know builder and restorer, Peter Breen. If you have had the fortunate experience to visit this pristine Northern Region of our continent, then you know the beauty inherent with the Granite rock formations and woodland settings. We are sure this was the inspiration of the many fine Canadian built boats! We look to welcome our Chapter friends at our hospitality area !

We had a great show last year with our return to the beautiful Buffalo Launch Club with 105 boats and over 100 Classic Cars! From the opening Ceremony, which included a “Fly-BY” by several thunderous Go-Fast boats to the harmonious Barbershop Quartet, we are planning an expanded Vendor area and interesting seminars. Please visit our updated website at – www.Oldboatsbuffalo.org for more information and registration forms. The show this year promises to be sweeter than Maple Syrup – EH!
