This event has been cancelled for 2011
June 9 – 12, 2011, Victoria’s scenic Inner Harbour will provide the backdrop for an event that will touch the hearts and minds of thousands. During four unforgettable days of revelry and celebration, we will commemorate the city’s maritime heritage with the historic visit of over two dozen Tall Ships from around the world.
This renowned international event means Victoria will have an unprecedented opportunity to experience history at first hand. Visitors will be able to walk the decks, touch the massive timbers, look up through the rigging at the sky, watch a cannon battle at sea, and turn back the clock to a time when our city's future was being built by ships like these.
In addition, we are planning an ambitious program of interactive educational activities, concerts, craft fairs and festive events that will delight all.
