Attractions at the event include multiple exhibitor’s booths and displays, on-water demonstrations, and live concerts.

The main stage will have performances throughout the day from Bobs & LoLo, Will’s Jams, Langley Ukelele Ensemble, Coastal Wolf Pack, SEABILLYS, Sarah Wheeler Band, The Burying Ground, and The Paperboys.
