In 2016, Sail Baltimore was a partner in hosting the U.S. and Canadian Navies for Maryland Fleet Week and Air
Show Baltimore October 10 through 17.
Sail Baltimore was responsible for planning some of the maritime components of Star-Spangled Sailabration in 2012 and Star-Spangled Spectacular in 2014, commemorating the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and the penning of “The Star-Spangled Banner”. Naval vessels, tall ships, historic vessels and other boats sailed into Baltimore in June 2012 and September 2014 for these events, the two largest tourism events ever in Baltimore. Sail Baltimore was responsible for hospitality for all of the ships that came to Charm City for these huge events.
We have honored significant historic events over the years by inviting and hosting large gatherings of ships: Sailabration 2004, OpSail 2000, OpSail 1992, Summer of Sail 1986 and Operation Sail 1976. Read more about these gatherings or find out which ships came to Baltimore for some of them.
