Whitefish Woody Weekend 2020, presented by the Big Sky Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society and hosted by the Lodge at Whitefish Lake, has been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns, organizers announced in a media release Monday.

Whitefish Woody Weekend draws over 40 classic boat entrants from across the Pacific Northwest and Canada, with more than half of the participants coming from outside of the Flathead Valley. The popular show typically sells out within one week of registration opening.

The show is by its very nature a highly social event, organziers stated. They determined that due to the number of participants from across the Pacific Northwest and Canada, the crowds that are invited and encouraged to share in the show, and the highly social interaction in confined spaces, it is not possible hold the show this year “in any reasonable fashion that would live up to the reputation and standards of the show while ensuring the safety of the participants and the public.”

Whitefish Woody Weekend IX is scheduled for June 25-27, 2021 at the Lodge at Whitefish Lake. Registration will open in mid-January 2021.
