Taking place on the 17th, 18th and 19th of May, the Windermere Boat Show is a fun, family event that has been drawing tourists to Windermere since first beginning in 2016. Since then, the Windermere Boat Show has solidified its position as a popular tourist event enjoyed by many from around the country. It’s a day by the water not to be missed and here at Windermere Marina Village, we are looking forward to a brilliant weekend down by the water.
Whether you are staying to visit the show or with us for just a Lake District weekend away, this article will tell you everything you need to know about the upcoming show.
In 2018, the Windermere Boat Show celebrated nearly fifty exhibitors and activity providers. This makes it an important weekend for dealers in boats and boating accessories to connect with clientele, but it is also a fantastic weekend for enthusiasts to see the latest technology and equipment associated with their hobby, all by the beauty of Lake Windermere.
Below, we discuss a few exhibitors who have showcased at previous Windermere Boat Shows who may return for the 2019 event.
Bay Sea School
Guided by the Royal Yachting Association, the courses offered by the Bay Sea School range from beginner to expert. At the exhibition, you will have the opportunity to chat with the friendly and knowledgeable Bay Sea School about how you can further your boating expertise and even book a course or two for the future.
Bowness Bay Brewing
This team will be supporting the event with their fantastic ales. They state that their hand-crafted beers are inspired by their surroundings so you can expect ‘awesome, majestic, rugged, strong and beautiful’ beverages when you stop by this stall.
Food in the Fells
Many people agree that most food taste better outside! This could be linked to the idea that we eat with our eyes first, and if this is true then surely the more pleasing your surroundings are then the more enjoyable your dining experience will be. This must mean that an outdoors lunch or dinner enjoyed in Windermere is a fantastic experience not to be missed – luckily for you, Food in the Fells will be available throughout the boat show.
Sea Shepherd UK
Sea Shepherd is a marine wildlife conservation organisation that has been established since 1977 and has been growing ever since. If you care about the state of our oceans and want to learn more or even lend a hand, these are the people that you need to talk to.
