The Salem Maritime Festival is hosted by the National Park Service on the wharves and in the historic buildings of Salem Maritime National Historic Site. This year’s 2–day festival offers an exciting array of activities, demonstrations, and exhibitors including live music and dance, free harbor cruises on both Saturday and Sunday, a magic show, traditional craft demonstrations, re-enactors, live animals, the crew of the USS Constitution, kayaking and paddle boarding, kite-flying, remote-controlled boats, and much more!

New this year is the addition of a small boat show on Sunday only – check out local favorites such as an Amesbury skiff and a Swampscott dory and a Mystic whaleboat. One of the most popular features of the festival is the free 90-minute boat rides around Salem Harbor. This year, visitors can enter lotteries to cruise Salem Harbor on both Saturday and Sunday. There are over 40 exhibitors, demonstrators, activities and over 10 different music, dance, and entertainment acts lined up for the weekend. For a complete list of exhibitors, demonstrators, activities, and performers visit NPS.gov/SaMa.
