Festival of Sail coming to Two Harbors

TWO HARBORS, MINNESOTA,  ~~~~  November 26, 2021  (LSNews)  Tall Ships return to Lake Superior, August 4-7, 2022 for a sixth installment of the popular festival and the Tall Ships Challenge® Race series in Two Harbors, MN.  Previously located on Duluth’s waterfront, Festival of Sail is moving for the 2022 edition due to construction on Duluth’s waterfront.

“We’re excited for the new sea wall and future event space on Duluth’s waterfront,” said Festival of Sail producer Craig Samborski. “However, postponing the 2022 event was not an option. The search for a new venue didn’t take us far. We approached Two Harbors’ Mayor Chris Swanson and he along with the community of Two Harbors graciously offered to host the festival on their beautiful waterfront. Two Harbors has that wonderful small-town charm, yet boasts a stunning, expansive waterfront. Two Harbors’ Agate Bay has extensive dock space for more ships and the event site on land is nearly three times as large as previous years. Not to mention the impressive volume of Great Lakes commercial ship traffic to ogle. With that said, I’m really excited to announce that we have a record number of ships appearing at the festival in 2022, Twelve to be exact,” added Samborski.

The popular festival will encompass the Two Harbors’ waterfront with an impressive fleet of majestic ships from as far away as Seville Spain. The line-up includes: US Brig Niagara, Pride of Baltimore II, Inland Seas, Schooner Utopia, St. Lawrence II (Kingston, ON), Nao Trinidad (Seville Spain), Gerhard Folgero, Sundew, Abbey Road, Schooner Charley, Edna G. and the 2021 winner of the Chicago Yacht Club’s Chicago to Mackinaw Race, Schooner Perception.  

The event has something for everyone needing a Tall Ships fix; onboard tours, day-sails and a grand parade of sail. The Agate Bay waterfront will also have a full complement of vendors, artisans, food, music, entertainment and a craft beer garden.
