Tall Ships® Return in 2019
Green Bay once again has been awarded the honor of hosting a fleet of Tall Ships® as part of the Tall Ships Challenge®. One of only 11 ports in North America and one of 7 in the USA, the Port of Green Bay will be home to nine majestic vessels July 26-28, offering a wide variety of entertainment and experiences.
Touring ships allow event-goers to learn about each ship’s rich history and meet the crew. Sailing ships offer even more of an experience as they hoist their anchor and sail down the river and into the mouth of the bay. Daily programming includes a full day of entertainment that is sure to make lasting memories. In addition to sail excursions and on-board tours, this year a variety of on-board experiences will be available for purchase.
