The Redpath Waterfront Festival


Jun 29, 2019 to Jul 1, 2019


Oh buoy! The Redpath Waterfront Festival returns to Toronto's waterfront on Canada Day weekend from June 29 to July 1, with shiploads of nautical fun for the whole crew.

Tour Bluenose II, the historic tall ship that's been on our dime since 1937, and climb on board Picton Castle, a three-masted tall ship that has sailed around the world seven times! Other visiting ships include: U.S.Brig Niagara, Pride of Baltimore II, Denis Sullivan, Playfair, St.Lawrence II and Fair Jeanne. The Royal Canadian Navy and the Canadian Coast Guard will also be coming ashore!

Have a mari-time on land with sailing-training activities, live entertainment and a Maritime Market. And celebrate Home Port Heroes from WWII with old photos, artifacts and nautical games from Parks Canada and the Navy.

2019 festival partners include: Redpath Sugar, Billy Bishop Airport, the Waterfront BIA, Government of Canada, Government of Ontario, City of Toronto, Tall Ships America, porter, Westin Harbour Castle, CTV and Cision.
