2020 Bay Harbor Vintage Car and Boat Festival CANCELLED

IMG 0525

The Board of Directors of the Bay Harbor Foundation regrets to announce that the 2020 Bay Harbor Vintage Car and Boat Festival has been cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Until recently, we continued to plan to hold the Festival as scheduled. However, as the pandemic has progressed it has become clear that we cannot proceed with the Festival in a way that would protect the health and safety of our exhibitors, spectators, volunteers, and community.

This is a sad time for us not only because we love to see our wonderful exhibitors and their families, but also because the Festival is the primary source of support for our annual grant awards to area nonprofits and the operations of the Foundation. If you were planning to attend the Festival, please consider making a donation to the Bay Harbor Foundation. Your gift will allow us to continue our work to serve the immediate needs of the Little Traverse Bay Community during this crisis.

We are already making plans to return in 2021, and we hope that you will be able to join us in Bay Harbor for another wonderful event showcasing a spectacular collection of cars and boats past, present, and future.

Thank you so very much for all of your support. If you have any questions, or wish to make a donation, please contact the Bay Harbor Foundation Office at 231.439.2700 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Sincerely,

The Board of Directors of the Bay Harbor Foundation
and the Bay Harbor Vintage Car and Boat Festival Committee

Every year, the Bay Harbor Vintage Car and Boat Festival kicks off the summer in Bay Harbor on the weekend after Father's Day with a fantastic collection of classic cars and wooden boats. The highlight of Vintage Weekend is the Parade of Vintage Cars and Display of Vintage Boats, which takes place on Saturday at 10:00 am, followed by the awards ceremony at 2:30 pm.

This exciting exhibition is free to attend, and every year thousands of people, both locals and visitors from across the Midwest bring their families to this elegant gathering of vintage cars and wooden boats.  It is an exciting opportunity for our specators to see these one-of-a-kind cars, and for our exhibitors enjoy the chance to reconnect with old friends and meet new ones while showing their prized cars and watercraft.
