The Age of Sail returns to Owen Sound Owen Sound is the place to be this August to experience majestic ships from a bygone era. It’s one of the select ports on The Tall Ships® 1812 Tour, presented by Redpath Sugar. Four tall ships sail into our city’s historic and picturesque harbour for a three-day stay. Board the Pride of Baltimore II (sponsored by Investment Planning Council, Owen Sound), Fair Jeanne (sponsored by The Sydenham at Owen Sound), and Playfair for unique tours. You can also sail away on Liana’s Ransom (sponsored by Parrish & Heimbecker Ltd.) for an unforgettable excursion on Georgian Bay. Plus, historical re-enactors will also take you back in time adjacent to the ships. Just north of the tall ships in the West Harbour area, there are several free activities including live music, children’s activities, a Harbour Market, interpretative displays and more. On the final day, take in the spectacular Parade of Sail. Inside read about the ships, what’s happening harbourside and also find out about all the other amazing things to do in Owen Sound, once known as “the Chicago of the North.” Enjoy yourself in the Scenic City... where you want to play.
