Visit the Redpath Waterfront Festival from June 20-23 and enjoy taking pictures and walking the decks of Tall Ships®. Toronto will be the only port on the Tall Ships® 1812 Tour where the entire fleet can be seen in one location.
From the magnificent opening ceremonies, welcoming the captains and crew, to the final awe-inspiring Parade of Sail, presented by the City of Toronto, as the fleet continues on its journey around the Great Lakes.
I saw a sneak peek of the ships arriving to the Toronto's Harbourfront, and it was fabulous. Check out towaterfrontfest.com for the program schedule.
Tall Ships® sail is loaded with history. The War of 1812 was fought on water as well as on the land. Three of the tall ships have links to those rousing times – Pride of Baltimore II, Privateer Lynx and US Brig Niagara are examples of the smaller fighting ships that held the might of the Royal Navy at bay.
It would be a wonderful learning opportunity to watch the interactive history at The Wharf at York that tells us the story of the attack on Fort York.
We can also enjoy the free Harbourfront Centre performances, the large-scale outdoor photographic exhibition of Toronto’s nine rivers that provide information on sailing and power boating instruction as well as rental programs.
We can see Flyboarding® , the coolest personal water jet pack, Cinema H20 creates an after dark experience featuring lasers, fountains, music and pyrotechnics, and many more.
