Tall ships will be returning to the Twin Ports in the summer of 2019, re-branded as 'Festival of Sail Duluth'. The event's website is currently promoting seven invited ships, including the US Brig Niagara, Schooner Appledore V, S/V Denis Sullivan, and Schooner Utopia. The roster of ships is subject to change prior to event, with organizers looking to add more ships.

Aside from ship viewing, the festival features ship tours, daily sails, educational programs, food and beverage, and other entertainment for the whole family. In previous years, the event has drawn massive crowds from all over the region, and the event's website claims a promise of the 2019 Festival of Sail Duluth to be the largest event in the region's history.

Festival of Sail Duluth 2019 kicks off Sunday, August 11, with events open from 11 am to 7 pm. The event continues Monday, August 12 and Tuesday, August 13 with event hours of 9 am to 5 pm. Further event and ticket information are available here.
