Every son and daughter knows the feeling all too well. It’s almost Father’s Day, there’s no lead on a gift and that clever imagination that always seems to be clipping along at full sail seems to have lost its favorable wind. You want something memorable, but not over-the-top. Something tasteful yet surprising. Something adventurous.

Something like a ticket to Festival of Sail Tacoma 2017, the largest event ever on the Tacoma Waterfront.

Picture your father amongst the grandeur of more than a 20 majestic tall ships, thunderous cannon fire and lively music echoing off the hulls of these awe-inspiring vessels. A legendary Fisher Fair scone in one hand and a craft beer in the other.

Truly a one-of-a-kind Father’s Day gift he’ll never forget.

On Thursday, June 15–18, 2017, behind the slipstream of the 61 ft. tall, 11-ton World’s Largest Rubber Duck, more than 20 awe-inspiring historic ships will gallantly sail through the Puget Sound into the Tacoma Waterfront for Festival of Sail Tacoma 2017.
