Come to Greenport for East End Maritime Festival 2017!

East End Maritime Festival 2017Hard as it may be to believe, summer is almost over. Don’t fret, though! That only means it’s almost time for East End Maritime Festival 2017. The 28th annual return of this popular, Long Island North Fork event is scheduled for September 23rd and 24th, 2017, in Greenport Village.

The East End Maritime Festival is an annual tradition here on Long Island’s North Fork. The weekend-long celebration of local maritime heritage is hosted by the East End Seaport Museum and kicks off with the annual Land & Sea Gala.

Land & Sea Gala – September 22nd, 6pm to 9pm
At the Greenport Yacht & Shipbuilding Co, Carpenter St
The Land & Sea Gala is a festive evening of delicious local food and drink with dancing and an auction. Folks come from all around Long Island area to attend the festivities, with proceeds going towards the East End Seaport Museum. In fact, the entire weekend serves to help fund the important works that the East End Seaport Museum & Marine Foundation has planned for next year.

Other highlights for this year’s Maritime Festival include the popular Opening Day Parade, live music from the HooDoo Loungers and The Daves, and Flyboard Demonstrations. If you’ve never seen a flyboard “surf the sky,” you’ll definitely want to come see this!

Another big draw will be the Ice and Classic Boat Exhibit. Beautiful, hand-crafted, vintage and modern wooden boats will be on display along with East End boat builders and restoration experts demonstrating their expertise and skills. The 62 foot, 1937 Picket Patrol yacht “Zaida” will also be on hand to represent Greenport’s WWII anti-submarine efforts.
