Thanks to the City of Brockville staff and residents, the committee and the many volunteers that made this happen.  Many thanks to each visitor that was able to come and join us. Come back and see us again soon! http://www.brockville.com/


 

Tall Ships® Brockville is the last port of call of the Tall Ships Challenge® Great Lakes Tour 2016. The participating ships will arrive in the afternoon on Friday September 16th, and will be available for tours with a Passport on Saturday September 17th and Sunday September 18th from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. 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.

Since the Empire Sandy hosts the sail out and dinner cruises, their ship tours for passport holders only will take place from 10 am to 11:30 am on both Saturday and Sunday.

On Monday, September 19th  we are proud to host the HMCS Ville de Quebec, a Halifax Class Naval Frigate. Your Tall Ships® Passport will allow you one free shuttle ride to tour this incredible vessel.

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