Lake Champlain Maritime Festival August 16-18, 2013

The Lake Champlain Maritime Festival’s mission is to celebrate the past, present and future of Lake Champlain and the Burlington Waterfront. The Festival is committed to enhancing the visibility and outreach of various non-profit organizations within our community. (LCMF)

This year’s Lake Champlain Maritime Festival will be at Burlington’s Waterfront Park on August 16-18, 2013!

The Lake Champlain Maritime Festival has been named a Top 100 North American Event by the American Bus Association and a Top Ten Vermont Summer Event by the Vermont Chamber of Commerce and is well-supported by both the state and regional chambers, as well as the city of Burlington. Daily admission is free to most events with select events requiring admission.

Stroll along the shores from venue to venue, view the classic boats, long boats, canoe, kayak and Dragon boat demonstrations as we commemorate the past, present, and future of Lake Champlain. Experience boat building, sample local fare, enjoy music and bring the children for hands-on exhibits along the spectacular shores of Burlington Vermont’s Waterfront. (LCMF)
