Tall Ship Celebration would not be possible without the passion and dedication of volunteers who enthusiastically give of their own time and make sure our guests receive all the assistance they require. Each year that we have had the honor of hosting the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® Great Lakes fleet, we have been fortunate to work with 500 or more volunteers who have made Tall Ship Celebration one of our region’s most successful events.
Volunteers are required to attend an orientation meeting prior to the event and must commit to work a minimum of 2 shifts during the festival. Tall Ship Celebration is an outdoor event and our volunteers spend a lot of time in the sun and on their feet.
Volunteers receive a volunteer t-shirt and have access to a shaded break area and drinking water during their shifts. Volunteers who commit to work at least 3 shifts also receive a Souvenir Passport. All who donate their time and talents are invited to a Volunteer Recognition party which will be held shortly after the event.

The investment of local businesses in Tall Ship Celebration is critical to our efforts to produce an award-winning maritime festival. To recognize the businesses and organizations that support the event, Tall Ship Celebration has created hospitality activities that are available only to its sponsors and invited VIP’s. Hospitality activities provide you the opportunity to interact one-on-one with representatives of Tall Ship Celebration sponsor companies, elected officials and invited guests. Consider the benefits of sponsoring one of the following business-to-business opportunities.
Since planning its first event in 2001, the Tall Ship Celebration Board of Directors has been committed to maximizing the economic impact of this world class maritime festival for others in our community and region. The Board invites the participation of arts and cultural organizations to be presenting partners of many activities throughout the event. Together with these organizational partners, Tall Ship Celebration has created a full schedule of activities and entertainment that enhance the event, provide important exposure for our partners and allow our guests to enjoy “mostly free” family fun. A sponsor investment in one of the following entertainment or craft activities provides much needed support for the presenting arts and cultural organization as well as for Tall Ship Celebration.
We are not currently accepting applications for food concessions at this time.
Tall Ship Celebration accepts a limited number of non-food concession businesses/exhibitors. To determine if your business is eligible, please contact Shirley Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
