The picturesque town of Madisonville, founded in 1817 along the banks of the wide Tchefuncte River, celebrates its maritime history each year with the very popular Madisonville Wooden Boat Festival. Attracting scores of classic hand-crafted wooden boats from across the Gulf Coast, the festival is a flotilla of fun, offering visitors the chance to view and sometimes board the boats, enjoy great food, live music and two days of activities.

The festival attracts about 30,000 visitors each year and shuttles are available to get people in and out of the area quickly. Admission is only $10 for adults, $5 for seniors 65+ and free for kids 12 and under and active duty military.

A shuttle will be available to transport Wooden Boat Festival goers from the Covington Sam’s Club parking lot to the Route 22 Gas Station and the Maritime Museum near the Festival. The shuttle will be running both days of the Festival, Saturday and Sunday, every hour on the hour from 9:30 AM until 7:00 PM. From those stops, there will be golf cart shuttles to transport festival-goers within the Wooden Boat Festival.
