Information about the event
In a great celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation, a fleet of 40 tall ships will be sailing Canadian waters. They'll be putting into host ports along the way, giving thousands of people in Québec, Ontario and the Maritimes the chance to admire these cathedrals of high seas.
Marking the point of the celebrations, the spotlight will be on Québec City as the entire fleet of 40 tall ships and 3,000 crew members convene here. There will be ship tours, thematic activities on the docks and a host of other free family activities for the general public.
