Join us for Mayflower Sails 2020 presented by Liberty Mutual Insurance: the six-day maritime festival where history will come to life as the Mayflower sails into Boston Harbor for the first time, escorted by the USS Constitution on May 14. History will come to life on board the ship and at the Charlestown Navy Yard through May 19 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the historic trans-Atlantic voyage in 1620.
Please Note: A ticket is not required for entry into the Mayflower Sails 2020 maritime festival. Tickets are required only for Mayflower. Children under 3 do not need a ticket.
Can’t get on the Mayflower? Rest assured, there will be first-come, first-served tickets available and many other exciting festivities at the Navy Yard!
Mayflower Sails 2020 will bring history to life through meaningful, engaging and educational programming for visitors of all ages! You can hop aboard the USS Cassin Young or USS Constitution - the world's oldest commissioned naval vessel still afloat! Meet colonials at the pier or learn from the Native people about life in the 17th century. You can even take a peek inside the USS Constitution Museum and learn what it's like to live aboard a ship and help pull up the sails!
Friday through Sunday you’ll find festival fare ranging from food trucks and a beer garden to entertainment and live music on our “Rock the Dock” Stage presented by iHeartMedia Boston’s Kiss 108, 100.7 WZLX, 101.7 The Bull, and WBZ NewsRadio 1030, and more
Please note that the Mayflower is not fully accessible. People with difficulty walking should be aware that there are ramps that can be steep according to the rise and fall of the tides. For safety and accessibility reasons, strollers and wheelchairs are not permitted on board and may be left dockside while you tour the ship. Those unable to board the ship may enjoy engaging in our pier side programming, a close-up view of Mayflower from the dock and an opportunity to take photos.
We look forward to seeing you at the Charlestown Navy Yard this May!
