Tall Ships Brockville

Information about the Brockville Tall Ships Festival that happens every 3 years, and the Big River Festival which is on every summer

Updated location of the Empire Sandy

Please note that all cruises aboard the Empire Sandy will now be departing from Blockhouse Island

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have had to move the location of the Empire Sandy.

Instead of being in Hardy Park (as indicated on your ticket), the Empire Sandy will now be stationed on Blockhouse Island.

You will need to pass through our security check point to get access to the ship, which means you will need to show your wristband or passport to gain access to the grounds. Please have your ticket ready to show at the gate.

Drivers in golf carts will be available to help transport those who have trouble walking distances to get across the festival grounds.

Dinner cruise ticket holders must show their dinner ticket at the security gate in order to get entrance to the festival grounds after 6pm when the grounds close for the night.
