Its maritime history is very important to this major port city and is celebrated through many events annually. Once such maritime event is the Vancouver Wooden Boat Festival which takes place on and around Granville Island from August 26th to 29th, 2010. Come on down to see spectacular wooden boats (and help build one!), see exhibits and celebrate Vancouver's rich maritime history!
