Canal Days Marine Heritage Festival
July 29 - August 2
Canal Days Marine Heritage Festival offers activities and attractions for the whole family. Vessels gather in Port Colborne each Civic Holiday weekend, for a celebration of history and heritage along the Welland Canal. Explore the decks, try your hand at the wheel, or feel the spray as you cruise the Empire Sandy Tall Ship on Lake Erie.
Nestled at the junction of the Welland Canal and the Lake Erie north shore, Port Colborne is a working marine community, with rich nautical history and welcoming hospitality. At the height of summer, the entire city takes time to celebrate the reasons why this picturesque town has grown and prospered – our marine heritage and our connection to the St. Lawrence Seaway.
