Live Music ~ The MB&H Show presents a fine and varied selection of live music on the Bandstand, which is conveniently located in Tent C near the food. It's a great place to take a short break or to meet up with your party. You'll find shelter, chairs to sit in, and best of all, wonderful performers strutting their stuff just for you. Check our our weekend music lineup here.

Demo Dock: Power and Sail (Dock F) ~ Back by popular demand, the Demo Docks are where some fine power and sailing craft will be standing by, at the ready for sea trials. Potential boat owners can make an appointment to climb aboard and experience the ride (and Rockland Harbor) first-hand.
Located on Dock F.

Annual World Championship Boatyard Dog® Trials
Sunday, August 11, 2019, 10:30 a.m.

The excitement is building! A half-dozen brave (crazy?) competitors are chosen each year for the seriously silly World Championship Boatyard Dog Trials. They hone their wild and wacky acts to wow the crowd. The 16th annual running of this pawsome event will begin at 10:30 a.m. on the waterfront; gates will open at 9:45. Come cheer on your favorite pooch (but do leave your pets at home, they will not be allowed on show grounds).
