In 1620 Mayflower brought passengers from Europe seeking a better life in the New World. In 2020 – 400 years later – more than 30 million Americans can trace their roots to that historic voyage. She will celebrate her 400th Anniversary in 2020 in Boston, Plymouth, Provincetown and Mystic.
Mayflower events are organized by various groups who have a common focus: Mayflower. The events are connected with each other in a manner similar to a sports league featuring independent teams and events that are marketed to the public under a common umbrella. Think PGA or NASCAR. Travelers, friends, fans and families want to know where and when they can see the star attraction: Mayflower.
Starting Labor Day Weekend 2019 and throughout 2020, she will be on tour to perform and meet her fans. Her performances will include inviting people to come aboard and explore her small but mighty frame and design. She will sail into Boston Harbor with the USS Constitution, and then they will dock together. She will tell the story of the Mayflower Compact in Provincetown. Her Official Launch will occur at Mystic Seaport, which she will call home during the winter. And she will return to Plymouth and Plimoth over Memorial Day Weekend 2020 for a spectacular homecoming.
The 2020 Rose Parade on New Year’s Day will feature a special Mayflower float.
Mayflower will be celebrated at Special Events that are designed to inspire the imagination, illuminate the past and offer perspective on the future. Visitors from the United States and around the world are invited to watch her sail and come on board in Boston, Plymouth and Provincetown, Massachusetts, as well as at Mystic Seaport, Connecticut.
Admission to most events will be FREE.
