Georgetown Wooden Boat Show 2017
Posted ByEVENT MGR 08/31/2017 | 06:27PM | 0

Before 1993 a county-supported festival called Bayfest, existed to celebrate the maritime heritage of Georgetown County. The head of the event resigned, and a small group of business people volunteered to take charge of the wooden boat portion. The motivation was basic: improve business in downtown Georgetown. Effort was put into attracting wooden boat builders and related exhibitors. The show was kept downtown, surrounded by the Front Street businesses. The 1993 show featured 35 exhibitors, doubling the previous Bayfest, and from then on, it was off to the races for the newly named Georgetown Wooden Boat Show (and for Georgetown businesses). In 1994, the Harbor Historical Association (HHA) was formed as the umbrella organization for the WBS and related events. Its stated mission is to “preserve and promote the maritime history of Georgetown and South Carolina.”
