The schooners return to Gloucester in late summer as we celebrate the 35th Annual Gloucester Schooner Festival. Maritime Gloucester will welcome more than 20 schooners to its recently rebuilt Harriet Webster Pier.

The weekend offers a wide range of sights and sounds. Taking place in the harbor and nearby waters of America’s oldest seaport, the Gloucester Schooner Festival honors the major role the fishing schooner – invented here in 1713 – has played in the heritage of Gloucester and the eastern seaboard. Old and new, large and small, a variety of schooners will visit Gloucester Harbor throughout the weekend, delighting all who visit. Gloucester’s beautiful harbor, acclaimed by explorer Samuel de Champlain as “Le Beauport” is the backdrop for a unique mix of modern day and traditional vessels from the age of sail. A spectacular highlight of the Gloucester Schooner Festival is the Parade of Sail on Sunday morning as participating schooners make their way through the harbor and past the breakwater, to the Mayor’s Race starting area off Eastern Point.
