A Note About the 2010 Tall Ships Festival


Not only was the date changed for the 2010 Tall Ships Festival, but so did the location and the size of the event. The Tall Ships Festival is normally held at the Market Street Terminal, in 2010 it was moved to the Portsmouth Commercial Fishing Pier on Pierce Island near Strawbery Banke Museum. The event was smaller, but claimed to be even more exciting than past years with the new venue and it's location near the historic museum.


Nearly 20,000 people attended that weekend. Many of them came early to view the tall ships that usually arrive during the week before the actual Tall Ship Festival weekend.


The Parade of Sail was set for Friday May 28, 2010. The parade started at buoy 2KR and headed towards the commercial fishing pier. The best place to view the Tall Ships Parade is on Newcastle Common, Pierce Island,  Four Tree Island, Prescott Park or on the state pier. The public can launch their boats and join the parade with the Tall Ships. The Portsmouth and Navy Yard fire boats led the parade. The Newmarket Militia fired their welcoming cannon salute with a return fire from the Tall ships.


The Tall Ships were not open for tours on Friday.



During the Tall Ships Festival, the tall ships docked in Portsmouth Harbor for the festival organized by the Piscataqua Maritime Commission. The two ships that were scheduled to arrive in Portsmouth Harbor were: The HMS Bounty and the Lynx.
