Be part of the 400th Anniversary of Jamestown! This exciting Anniversary event launches with an 80-day sail of the newly commissioned replica Godspeed, bringing a bit of American history to six major ports along the eastern seaboard.
Godspeed, one of the three original ships that in 1607 brought America's first permanent English colonists to Jamestown, our nation's birthplace, will serve as a floating museum for families, students and tens of thousands of visitors. Visitors will explore a sampling of 17th -century America ... 21st century style!
Join in the excitement of the "Landing Party" - featuring live musical performances, family entertainment, historical and cultural displays highlighting the legacies of Jamestown and the growth of America -- all within a 30,000 square foot festival area, free to the public, at a nearby port.
