The Festival is so thankful to partnering with the East End Seaport Museum.
Located on the water, the museum provides the opportunity to experience Greenport's historic waterfront and the rich maritime heritage of Long Island’s East End. The museum holds a variety of children's programs and lighthouse cruises, ensuring that there are always ways to learn and explore in Greenport.
Unbeknownst to many tourists, Greenport is home to a rich maritime history. In addition to being a key naval location during the American Revolution and the Spanish American War, Greenport was a principal whaling port, along with a transportation hub housing side-wheel steamers, and a prosperous oyster and menhaden fishing industry.
