In the spirit of preserving our past and embracing our future, Celebrate Gloucester brought together local musicians, artists, authors, historians, fishermen and maritime activities for a Memorial Day Weekend festival celebrating Gloucester's arts and maritime culture. (Gloucester travel info)

About a thousand people were entertained by the extraordinary music on Saturday night under a giant dockside tent. Several members from the Cape Ann Aid Katrina Relief Project reunited for a very special evening.

Celebrate Gloucester featured music on 2 stages, a juried art exhibition and art auction, tours of Schooner Adventure, spectacular dance performances, films, educational programs and live demonstrations.
Schooner Adventure - a national historic landmark

Schooner Adventure, a national historic landmark, offered interpretive topside tours of the ship. Festival goers saw the restoration process in action along with a dory exhibit, historic artifacts, lobstering demonstrations and much more.

Children made their own Sailor’s Valentines out of local and exotic shells, fish prints and learned various knots from a master.
