2008 Charleston Maritime Festival
Fri., May 16 - Mon., May 18, 2008
Join an expected 15,000 boat and maritime fanatics in celebrating the
history of all things boating in sunny Charleston, South Carolina. Tall
Ships of Charleston will sponsor this Charleston event located right on the
Charleston waterfront. Enjoy free sailing, a children's maritime
village, crafts, pirate camps, wooden boat exhibits, maritime art and of
course...plenty of Charleston food and drink. Also, enjoy Live Music
by (TBA) as you peruse through maritime history.
On the dock of the Maritime Center, on the Charleston Harbor, see over a
dozen tall ships setting sail along with The Spirit of South Carolina
to race Sunday from Charleston to
Bermuda. This race is also known as the C2B...make sense? Ship tours
start at 10 each morning and end at 5 in the evening. On the lawns of the
Maritime Center one can graze through many maritime exhibits, live music,
wooden boats and more.
Walk a few feet from the Charleston Maritime Center to experience what
Charleston South Carolina's taverns, bars, and
restaurants have to offer.
The Charleston Maritime Festival is now Harbor Fest
