The Finger Lakes Boating Museum of Hammondsport, NY and the newly opened Boathouse Beer Garden located on the Cayuga Wine Trail in Romulus, NY are pleased to announce their recently forged partnership creating the Cayuga Lake Annex location of the Finger Lakes Boating Museum. On Saturday, May 30th, they will be holding a Grand Opening Celebration & Launch Party commemorating the opening of both the Boathouse Beer Garden as well as this newest venue displaying vintage watercraft of the Finger Lakes.
Festivities will include live music, h d’oeuvres and a “Launching Ceremony” officially opening the museum’s exhibit to the public. If his schedule permits, NY State Senator Michael Nozzolio may be on hand to help with the ribbon cutting. Throughout the day, visitors will enjoy the jazz of David CasT’s Groove Merchants and later the rock sound of Edens Apple. Dozens of quality crafters as well as a wide selection of foods, local produce and much more will be available at the neighboring Shops at Traders Village. Parking is free.
The Finger Lakes Boat Museum recently made its permanent home in Hammondsport and is rapidly becoming an internationally acclaimed home for the many varieties of boats both built in and used throughout the Finger Lakes region. In an effort to foster continuing knowledge of the region’s maritime history, their charter seeks to have representation on each of the Finger Lakes.
Not surprisingly, when Boathouse Beer Garden’s owner, Peter Arena, approached Museum president, Ed Wightman, it was quickly recognized as a perfect fit. Boathouse Beer Garden was created as a place where all things Finger Lakes could be celebrated. That included the ever-growing beer-making culture, the world-class wineries and, naturally, the unique craftsmanship of its boating history. The display area inside the Boathouse Beer Garden contains a variety of different Finger Lakes boat styles and is free and open to the public.
The Grand Opening celebration will take place at the Boathouse Beer Garden at the Traders Village location at 6128 State Rte. 89 Romulus, NY on Saturday, May 30th from 11am to 7pm. The Launching and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will take place at approximately 2pm.
