Schooner Festival -this Sunday 9/6/2009!
Celebrating its silver anniversary, and well known to the world as Gloucester’s major maritime and sailing event, the 25th Annual Gloucester Schooner Festival, is organized by the Gloucester Schooner Festival Committee and the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce.
Taking place in the harbor and immediate waters of America’s Oldest Seaport, the Gloucester Schooner Festival honors the major contribution of the classic fishing schooner to the history of Gloucester and the Eastern Seaboard. Featuring many of the last remaining great old vessels, now alongside their replicas. For two days Gloucester’s harbor, the oldest fishing port on the Atlantic Coast, is the backdrop for a unique mix of old and new as modern-day trawlers share their home port with traditional vessels from the age of sail.
As a spectacular highlight of the 25th anniversary of the Gloucester Schooner Festival, the Parade of Sail returns. Schooners proceed from Inner Harbor, past the Fisherman’s Memorial on Stacy Boulevard, to the race starting area off Eastern Point.
