Walloon Woodies Experience

Saturday, August 3, 2024

Dating back to the early 1920s, wooden hull boats were a prized possession of owners on the Lake. Known for their majestic appearance and craftmanship, each year the “Walloon Woodies” are displayed along Walloon Lake for all to enjoy. Watch the parade of boats depart for their journey from your lakeside private balcony guest room or from the comfort of Hotel Walloon’s private beach. In addition to the boat show, there is a Antique & Classic Car Show held in Village Green Park featuring pre-World War II models. Join us for a premier Village event rooted in Walloon Lake history.
