The GISF or Great International Steamboat Flotilla, is an unusual show as it moves around to different places and like you, this year I didn't hear or read where it was or if it even happened at all. Sometimes it's in Clayton NY, sometimes at Waterford NY, which is generally a combination of the show and a river/canal trip.

I'm not sure if there was even a show this year.

I would drop these folks an email, they would know:

smokestackmag@yahoo.com

Just looked at the Antique boat museum website and they have no listing for it this year:
