Lakemac Heritage Festival

Event dates to be confirmed: March 2019

The Lakemac Heritage Festival is a significant National event with boats coming from all over Australia and around 80 classic boats on display - steam, sail, motor and oared craft of all sizes. Boats must be of a design prior to 1990 but may have been built at anytime from any material.

Over the two days of the event, visitors are treated to model boat demonstrations and races, displays, market stalls, kids games, vintage farm machinery, an art exhibition, historical displays, vintage cars and trucks, entertainment and, of course, the "Quick and Dirty" boat building competition held on the Sunday of the festival.

The event culminates in a Grand Parade and Blessing of the Fleet at 3pm on the Sunday afternoon. The event celebrates the rich history of Lake Macquarie.
