Each week we write about all the weekend's upcoming boat shows and events so that if you can't get out on the water, at least you can still be around boats. Not too much going on this weekend, but the boat shows and events that are happening are either big or unique. Whether you are interested in sailboats, trawlers, or pumpkin boats, you'll want to check out this weekend's events.

Feel free to jump right to our calendar of boat shows at FirstBoat, or read on to see where the boat shows and regattas are happening this weekend at the Daily Boater...
This Weekend's Boating Events
United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis The biggest boating event of the weekend is also one of the largest boat shows in the world. The US Sailboat Show is huge and is the first (and bigger) of two big boat shows on two consecutive weekends in Annapolis.

Trawler Fest Baltimore - If you are in or near Annapolis but want to see more trawlers and perhaps rendezvous with other trawler owners, head a half hour north and check out Trawler Fest at BMC Inner Harbor Marina.

Damariscotta Pumpkinfest Regatta - The most bizarre (boating) event of the weekend. The Pumpkin Regatta wraps up a week-long pumpkin festival in Damariscotta, Maine.

And finally, the last few days of the Genoa International Boat Show are this weekend, but stay tuned for several more International boat shows over the next couple of weeks.
