This year’s show April 17-19!

Happy New Year, everyone! We’re starting to get our acts together for the SIXTH Bayou Teche Wooden Boat Show, to be held on the above dates in conjunction with the Bayou Teche Black Bear Festival on the grounds of Parc sur la Teche in downtown Franklin, Louisiana.

Not much to report as yet, but we’ll keep you posted!

The Cajun Classique is on the way!

Cruisers are in the water and headed down Bayou Teche this week with stops along the way. They’ll arrive in Franklin this Friday for the Bayou Teche Wooden Boat Show, and we’re very excited to have them!

Meanwhile things are just about ready for the weekend. We’ll be expecting our first arrivals late this week and the show opens at 6 p.m. Friday.

See you all there!

We’re four days away!

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Fifth BTWBS starting Friday. Registrations are running a little low, but we’ve had tremendous growth in the past four years and a little dip won’t dampen our spirits one bit. If you haven’t let us know you’re coming please do so this week so the cooks can have a head-count.

See you all this weekend!

Next Show: April 11-13, 2014

The Bayou Teche Bear Festival folks have set the above date for their event, and as we hold ours on the same date and fairgrounds, that will be the Fifth Bayou Teche Wooden Boat Show dates.

Did you notice that word, “FIFTH”? Yes, from humble beginnings, we ‘re now heading into our fifth installment of what has been an unexpected but delightful success story!

More information about the 2014 show will be coming in months ahead, but here’s something very exciting we wanted to share. These kind folks have decided to do their own Bayou Teche event, a cruise that will begin on April 7 in Breaux Bridge, La. and end up at the BTWBS that Friday when we open the show! Thank you, Cajun Classique, for your support and for bringing even more attention to fine wooden watercraft to our area!
