The Les Cheneaux Islands Antique Wooden Boat Show is held each year in Hessel, Michigan.

Hessel is in the beautiful Upper Peninsula and can be reached by car, plane or boat. The Albert Lindberg Airport has a paved 3,700 foot runway. If traveling via highway, take Exit 359 off I-75 and drive east on M-134 just 16 miles.

Some of the country's finest boats call the beautiful
Les Cheneaux Islands home. Entries arrive each August from as far away as California and Florida.

Vessels include dinghies, rowboats, canoes, launches, sailboats, utilities, runabouts, large cruisers, racers and classic glass.
