Tall Ships 1812 Tour

The TALL SHIPS® 1812 Tour presented by Redpath Sugar will sail throughout Ontario during the summer of 2013! In commemoration of the War of 1812, 16 ports will be participating and the tour is produced in partnership with the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® Great Lakes. 

The Redpath Waterfront Festival, June 20-23, 2013, will be the official launch of the tour when TORONTO welcomes the entire international fleet, occupying two kilometers along the inner harbour. The spectacular Opening Ceremonies will take place on Thursday June 20 and the entire four-day weekend is given over to festivities for all ages and interests.

Climb aboard for a deck tour and thrill to the beauty of famous sailing vessels from Norway, U.S.A. and Canada. Enjoy, food, music, interactive theatre and special events along Toronto’s Waterfront.  The launch will end on Sunday with an unforgettable sight – the entire fleet displayed in a Parade of Sail as they leave for their next port. 

Come to the party in Toronto!  TOwaterfrontfest.com.  Follow the tour as the ships arrive and spread out through the lakes to visit Ontario ports all summer long!
