Sea Chantey Festival

For centuries, sailors have honed their shipboard skills to the cadence of songs recounting the adventure, tragedy and romance of life at sea.

These “sea chanteys” and the sailors life they describe, come to life aboard the Star of India.

The music begins at 11 a.m. and ends at 4:25 p.m. with a group finale. Best of all, the whole event is included with Maritime Museum admission at no extra charge.

Visitors will enjoy sea chanteys and traditional folk music performed by popular local and national artists such as The Jackstraws, The Bilge Pump band, Gilman Carver and more.

The Star of India sail crew will demonstrate various shipboard skills traditionally accompanied by sea chanteys and visitors will have a chance to join in and raise the sails of the historic ship.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
