Make Waterford the Unofficial Capital of Ireland For the Duration of the Tall Ships Festival
Thursday-Sunday, June 30-July 3, 2011 will be four extraordinary days in Waterford as Ireland once again hosts The Tall Ships Races.
The Tall Ships Races is set to be the biggest event in Ireland in 2011 and the return of The Tall Ships to Ireland’s South East region will be celebrated with a festival programme capturing the very best of Irish and international acts; street theatre; fireworks; music and food.
To mark this massive occasion we want to make Waterford the unofficial capital of Ireland, generating greater awareness amongst the global community that Waterford is a must see location for everyone coming to Ireland, while showing them that there is still a lot of positivity in this great country.
This is one of the most spectacular and colourful events in the world and Waterford is gearing up to host over 70 majestic Tall Ships; 1,500 sail trainees and an anticipated 500,000 maritime, music and festival fans on the quays of Ireland’s oldest city. We'd greatly appreciate your support for this petition!
