Classic Boat & Schooner Rendezvous
In 2018, Lake Superior Tall Ships sponsored a new annual event in Bayfield!
During the 1st Annual Bayfield Classic Boat & Schooner Rendezvous, seven unique vessels visited the city on the weekend after Labor Day. In conjunction with the visit, we organized a Saturday afternoon boat parade along with other nautical-themed events, concerts and demonstrations.
Participating organizations in 2018 included LSTS, the Bayfield Heritage Association, the Bayfield Carnegie Library, the Bayfield Coast Guard Station, the Bayfield Sea Scout Ship 336 and the Bayfield Maritime Museum.
In future, we will be inviting more boats and more organizations, and planning more activities for this very special three-day event!
With the generous support of our sponsors, we hope to greatly expand this event and attract more visitors to the area on this normally quiet weekend after Labor Day.
Our sponsorship needs range from in-kind donations to cash sponsorships. We offer several levels of sponsorship, with varying levels of benefit for your business. We also need volunteers to help with a variety of jobs prior to during and after the event.
