  • Tall Ships Celebration will return to Bay City in 2016. Michigan’s largest gathering of tall ships will take place the third weekend of July, 2016. For the third time since 2001, Bay City has been named Port of the Year by Tall Ships America, organizer of the Tall Ships Challenge. More than 75,000 visitors watched in awe at the fleets’ billowing sails during the 2013 event.
