The Tall Ships Are Coming!®

“Tall Ships® New Orleans 2018 is a gift to our city. By sharing our rich maritime history with our community and our students, we can bring everyone together to celebrate three hundred years of our connection with the Mississippi River. Our goal is to share the educational mission of each of the visiting ships. The more we know, the better we can learn about science and history and the impact both have had on our city.”  Mr. James M. Huger, President, New Orleans Tricentennial Tall Ships® Committee

It takes years of planning and many stakeholders to bring a fleet of navy war ships and sailing ships up the Mississippi. In tandem with NOLA Navy Week 2018, and the cooperation of the U.S. Coast Guard, Whitney Bank, the New Orleans Tricentennial Tall Ships® Committee, Tall Ships America and many more, a dynamic fleet of international ships will grace the river’s edge at Woldenberg Park, April 19 – 22, 2018.
