Well known to the world as Gloucester’s major maritime and sailing event, the 35th annual Gloucester Schooner Festival is organized by the Gloucester Schooner Festival Committee and Maritime Gloucester, held August 30th-September 2nd, 2019.
Taking place in the harbor and nearby waters of America’s oldest seaport, the Gloucester Schooner Festival honors the major role the fishing schooner has played in the heritage of Gloucester and the eastern seaboard.
A spectacular highlight of the Gloucester Schooner Festival is the Parade of Sail on Sunday morning, as the participating schooners make their way through the harbor and out past the breakwater, to the Mayor’s Race starting area off Eastern Point.
Volunteers are still needed for this year’s festival! If you would like to be part of Maritime History with us…
