Herreshoff Waterfront Festival presented by Full Channel June 22nd, 10am-2pm
• Free Museum Admission & Kids Activities
• Free Sailboat Rides on Herreshoff 12½s: Take a spin around Bristol Harbor on our historic Herreshoff 12½s with an experienced instructor. The mission of the Herreshoff STEAM Sailing & Seamanship Program is to teach the art of seamanship and the principles of sailing, with an emphasis on excellent instruction, as well as the design, beauty, and unique features of these classic vessels. If you've never sailed on a 12½, this is your chance to experience it for free.
• Fulcrum Speedworks’ UFO Foiling Dinghy: The UFO is a simplistic modern hydrofoiling boat, that allows anyone to fly through the air, freeing the hull from draggy water. It is more stable than the International Moth -or even a child’s pram- with a simple rig, and a set of fully retractable hydrofoils. This is your chance to check out these one of a kind vessels up close and personal.
• Food Trucks & The Granny Squibb Company's Organic Iced Tea: Quench your thirst with Granny Squibb's Organic Iced Tea. Granny Squibb’s iced teas is described as “astonishingly delicious: robust and refreshing as the home-brew Granny Squibb made years ago at our family's place overlooking Narragansett Bay in Saunderstown, Rhode Island." Stay for lunch and picnic on the waterfront with Castaway Gourmet Food Truck and Pete's Ice Cream Truck.
• Annual Herreshoff Wharf Sale: June 21st & 22nd: It's time to clean out your boat sheds, garages and storage lockers for the annual HMM Wharf Sale! This two-day sale raises money for the museum's programs, and we're happy to take gently-used boats, marine gear, tools, and other items off your hands. This event runs June 21st and 22nd, during regular business hours, 10am-5pm. Early admission hours from 8-10am on Friday are FREE to members, or $10 donation for non-members. Please contact Kirk Cusic for information about donating at firstname.lastname@example.org.
