Welcome to the 38th annual Gloucester Schooner Festival! This year, the festival starts Thursday, September 1st, and concludes with the schooner race on Sunday, September 4th, 2022.
This capstone to the summer is steeped in history and jam-packed with events and opportunities to get up-close and personal with these beautiful ships. The GSF has become a Labor Day weekend tradition for thousands of people every year and we hope you will join in the festivities!
The Gloucester Schooner Festival is an event put on by Maritime Gloucester and has become a community wide celebration of the age of sail in Gloucester Harbor. Every year schooners from all over travel to Gloucester to race and to show off their beauty and grace both under sail and as a dock-side attraction. This website is designed to offer all the information you will need to plan an exciting weekend on and off the water.
