Tall Ships Celebration 2013 LogoDow Corning is the official Port Sponsor for the 2013 Tall Ship Celebration in Bay City, Michigan (USA). The Tall Ship Celebration will take place July 11 – July 14, 2013. 

Dow Corning has been a major sponsor of the Tall Ship Celebration since 2006 and was Port Sponsor in 2010. This will be the fifth-time the award-winning maritime festival returns to Bay City.

“Dow Corning is proud to support world-class, family-oriented events that do so much to enhance the Great Lakes Bay Region - today and in the future,” J. Donald Sheets Dow Corning Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer explained. “Tall Ship Celebration has a proven track record of attracting positive international attention to our region and our state, and generating economic benefits spanning the entire area.”

Kathy Czerwinski, Tall Ship Celebration Board chair explained, “We couldn’t be happier to welcome Dow Corning Corporation back to Tall Ship Celebration. We have a great partnership with Dow Corning because our interests and goals for the event are the same: produce a first-class event that attracts positive attention to our region featuring family-oriented entertainment that is affordable and accessible to all who wish to join us.”

In addition to a number of artistic and cultural activities, the 2013 event will highlight the anniversary of the War of 1812 which was fought in three theaters: at sea along the Atlantic coast, on land and sea in the American South and Gulf Coast, and along the American-Canadian frontier including the Great Lakes.

Bay City has hosted the Tall Ship Celebration previously in 2001, 2003 and 2006 and has twice won “Port of the Year” honors for its efforts. When it welcomes the Tall Ships America fleet in July 2013, Bay City will again be the only official host port for the state of Michigan.
