Tall ship, Picton Castle, sails the ocean.Jump on board! The tall ships return to Toronto’s waterfront Canada Day weekend, June 29 – July 1, for the 9th annual Redpath Waterfront Festival, presented by Billy Bishop Airport.

Tour the legendary Bluenose II, the ship on our dime, and discover Picton Castle, a deep sea ship known for her sail-training adventures around the world. The Royal Canadian Navy is returning and the Canadian Coast Guard will cruise into the festival for the first time with a giant icebreaking vessel.

There will also be buckets of nautical fun to be had ashore with a Maritime Market where you’ll find lost treasures and boatloads of nautical-themed eats, an oyster shucking competition, and live entertainment.
