Big Little Boat Festival 2024

May 18 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Chesapeake Light Craft presents this annual showcase event at Conquest Beach in Centreville.

Conquest Beach is situated on the 758-acre Conquest Preserve between the Chester and Corsica Rivers. It is about an hour east of our Annapolis shop. But we think it will be worth the drive for those visiting from the western shore.  The beach has easy access for small boats on dollies and plenty of shade on shore. The facility includes two bath houses with showers, plenty of parking, and, best of all, the view of the river is fantastic. 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!

Grab a bite to eat at the on-site food truck, or bring a picnic lunch. On-site camping is available on Friday & Saturday nights.  We hope to see you there!
