Tall Ships Sail into Cleveland for Family Fun!

The Tall Ships will be docking at Lake Erie for a 4-day maritime Family Fun Celebration, from July 7-10, 2022!

Don’t miss this rare child-friendly chance to catch a glimpse, step aboard, and even set sail on the 2022 fleet of tall ships. The ships will arrive in a ceremonial parade of sail into Downtown Cleveland on Thursday, July 7 from 4-6 p.m. (approximately).  This is their first visit back to Cleveland since 2019!

From delicious festival foods, thirst quenching beverages, live music, street performers and a festival marketplace there is much to experience on this unforgettable adventure.

The event will take place at Downtown Cleveland’s Lakefront (just north of FirstEnergy Stadium) 515 Erieside Avenue at North Coast Harbor.  This 4-day waterfront festival is a wonderful event for families of all ages (note children 2 and under are free with a paying adult) to enjoy live entertainment, historical exhibits, food, beverages and even board the Tall Ships!

The fleet consists of  7 replicas and restored ships from the United States, Canada as well as Spain.  The names of these vessels are:

    • Appledore IV
    • Inland Seas
    • Pride of Baltimore II
    • U.S. Brig Niagara
    • Empire Sandy
    • St. Lawrence II
