Sailfest is rightly billed as Southeastern Connecticut’s premier summer waterfront event, as it attracts over 300,000 visitors to New London over the 3-day festival. This year’s Sailfest will be held July 11-13.

Sailfest features lots of great food, a major fireworks display, amusement rides, free entertainment, a Tall Ship, and over 200 vendors lining the downtown streets. In addition, there are multiple stages of free entertainment with musical genres ranging from Rock and Celtic to Hip Hop and Blues.

Kids can also enjoy free shows at the City Pier stage, and Sailfest showcases the 4th largest fireworks display in the Northeast, sponsored by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation.
