Tall Ships Brockville

Tall Ships Brockville

I'm going to the Brockville Tall Ships Festival in 2019

Activities

The Brockville Tall Ships® Festival – Presented by Procter & Gamble 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 en masse during the Parade of Sail passing along Block House Island prior to their dock arrival on Friday afternoon at 4:00 pm.

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). For more information on tickets (and to purchase) please visit our ticket page.

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, Captain’s Reception and more.
