The South Street Seaport Museum will host the 13th Annual New York Ship & Boat Model Festival on Saturday and Sunday, August 6th and 7th, 2005 from 1:00 to 5:00 PM. Dozens of model builders will display their work on Pier 16 located at South and Fulton Street and float their models in our pool-on-the-pier. Simultaneous demonstrations of nautical skills, tours of the square-rigger Wavertree, childrenÂ¹s activities, and musical entertainment round out the weekend. Explore the Museum's fleet of historic ships, the spectacular view from Pier 16 and learn about the art of model boat making.
The Festival has been made possible through funding provided by Commerce Bank.

7 August 1999, New York Daily News, "New York Weekend" by Pat O'Haire, pg. 33:
Boats big boats, little boats, sailboats, powerboats, battery- operated ones and lots more will be out on the water this weekend at two very different sea festivals.
The first is the Ship and Boat Model Festival today and tomorrow from 1 to 5 p.m. at the South Street Seaport. Model builders from all over will be at this show, held at a pool adjacent to Pier 16. Also, from 2 to 4 p.m. both afternoons, a toy and model boat workshop is available to show anyone interested how to build a model. And to make things even more nautical, the Spindrift musical group will lead everyone in a sing-along of sea chanteys.
