On October 22nd and 23rd Cambridge hosts the Cambridge Schooner Rendezvous from 10:00am – 5:00pm at Long Wharf Park. We love to see the gorgeous ships that come to Cambridge for this event! To be considered a schooner, a ship must have at least two masts. Schooners were used around the world by everyone from people who were involved in trade to pirates, but the Chesapeake Bay area developed a few types of unique schooners of their own.
This great event will feature dockside tours and daily sails on the schooners, vendors, live entertainment, merchandise and more! On Saturday, the opening of the event will feature a Blessing of the Fleet and the chorus of Dorchester. Saturday will also feature a Historic Walking Tour of Cambridge at 12:00pm and 3:00pm.
If you plan to take part in this event, please keep in mind that parking near Long Wharf Park is limited. Feel free to park at the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge and take the complimentary land taxi to the event. Admission to this event is free, but fees and times for the schooner tours and sails vary per vessel.
