Tall Ships Brockville

Tall Ships Brockville 2019

Activities

The Brockville Tall Ships® Festival is the last port of call of the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® Great Lakes Tour 2019. The participating ships will arrive in the afternoon on Friday August 30th, and will be available for tours with a Passport on Saturday August 31st and Sunday September 1st. Don’t miss these majestic ships when they recreate the magic again for visitors to witness them on mass during the Parade of Sail passing along Block House Island prior to their dock arrival on Friday afternoon.

To enter the festival grounds, you will need to show either a General Admission wristband (for grounds admission) or Festival Passport (deck tours + grounds admission).

Since the Empire Sandy hosts the sail out and dinner cruises, that ship will not be available for deck tours at the event.

Other offerings include nautical demonstrations, vendors, entertainment, re-enactments, historic encampments and more.

Below is the 2016 festival entertainment schedule for your reference. Please check back as we update the list with 2019 activities and entertainment.
