Boat Show 2022 Wilmington, NC — Cape Fear Community College is pleased to announce the return of the CFCC Riverfront Boat Show. The show will be held on Saturday, March 26 from 9:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on the Cape Fear riverfront on Water St. (between the Hotel Ballast and Coastline Convention Center).

The event will showcase the art of boat building, featuring the work of CFCC boatbuilding students and local craftsmen. A variety of wooden and fiberglass boats will be displayed along the riverfront, as well as in the water. This event is free and open to the public.

There will be ten judged classes, including special Simmons Sea Skiff awards. All proceeds from the boat show will support scholarships for CFCC’s boat-building students.

A catered dinner will be provided for all registered participants directly after the show.
