Wharf Fest needs boats, autos

Organizers of Coupeville’s second annual Wharf Fest maritime celebration are in need of more vintage boats and automobiles to attend the two day event. Last year, the event attracted several steam launches from as far away as Spokane. However, with rising fuel costs, none are expected to attend this year.

Wharf Fest is June 28 and 29 this year, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and is centered around the historic 1905 Coupeville Wharf. The family festival features free children’s activities, roving pirates, live music, admission by donation to the museum, and vintage boats and autos on display. Several larger working boats are expected to show this year, but pleasure craft and classic cars are also encouraged to join the fun.
