PMI will stage the Baylake Bank Tall Ship Festival on August 13 – 15, 2010 in downtown Green Bay. After a successful 2006 tall ship festival in Green Bay in which PMI was the event operator, PMI will be sole event organizer and operator in 2010, working in partnership with the City of Green Bay and Baylake Bank. As in 2006, Baylake Bank is title sponsor of the 2010 event.
Baylake Bank Tall Ship Festival 2010 will have 12 Tall Ships® with one or two international vessels expected. The ships will be docked at Leicht Memorial Park and at other downtown riverfront areas. The festival will also include food, music and other entertainment.
Due to the scope of this event, planning has already been going on for a year. The announcement is being made two years in advance to continue the work of recruiting volunteers and sponsors.
The 2010 event is expected to draw 60,000 people and hundreds of volunteers will be needed. The 2006 festival drew nearly 59,000 people to downtown Green Bay. Volunteer and festival information can also be found at http://www.tallshipgreenbay.com.
