2022 Festival:

The 2022 Narooma Boats Afloat Festival will be held on 11-13 November 2022.

Entry details and forms will be available once costs and venues and the program is finalised.

2020 and 2021 Festivals were unfortunately cancelled to to Covid19.

If 2019 was an example, then the highlights might include:

  • Friday night welcome barbecue at Jim’s boat shed;
  • Saturday morning cruise and morning tea on the Wagonga Inlet, followed by live music by the very popular and sought after jazz band - The Fred’s Traditional Jazz Band - at the marina;
  • Saturday night gala dinner and auction at the Inlet restaurant;
  • Sunday morning grand parade followed by an event for sailing boats, a gourmet lunch at the marina, prize giving and much more.
  • Throughout the weekend there was a display of maritime themed art by local artists. This has attracted much interest in previous years.
  • The gala dinner and auction was held in the newly refurbished Inlet Restaurant overlooking the beautiful Wagonga Inlet.

The weekend provides a wonderful opportunity to meet and catch up with old friends and enthusiasts and to share experiences with others in one of the most beautiful surroundings on the NSW coast.

Sincere thanks always go to our hard working and tireless BoatsAfloat Committee and the continued support from our valued sponsors, volunteers and supporters.
