Maritime Gloucester is hosting their annual Heritage Day in honor of the Gloucester Schooner Festival 2021. Step aboard a schooner, learn about traditional shipbuilding and fitting out, watch America’s oldest marine railway in action, or explore the unique biology that makes our oceans so amazing. You can find it all at Maritime Heritage Day! Maritime Gloucester will be hosting a variety of local community organizations with an exciting array of demonstrations and interactive options for all ages.
In addition to our exhibitors we will have music, schooner charters, and delicious local fare. Many of the Gloucester Schooner Festival's visiting schooners will be open to deck tours and charters. This festival will take place over two locations on the Gloucester Waterfront, our own Harriet Webster Pier on Harbor Loop as well as the new Schooner Docks at the neighboring I4C2 lot.
This is an exciting day with something for everyone from the budding marine biologist to the maritime history enthusiast. An ever growing list of our vendors can be seen below and a schedule of events will be posted soon.
