ELISSA Sundowner Party

June 6 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The Official Tall Ship of Texas welcomes you onboard her storied decks for the 2020 Sundowner party. Held in conjunction with her annual day sail series, this special sundown event features access onboard, craft beer, wine, food, music featuring Kevin Anthony & G-Town, and more surrounded by the staff and crew of the 1877 Tall Ship ELISSA.

GHF brought ELISSA, an 1877 square-rigged iron barque, from a scrapyard in Piraeus Harbor, Greece to Galveston to begin restoration work in 1978. By 1982, GHF staff and volunteers completed restoration and transformed this rare, historic vessel into a floating museum that would actively sail. Today, ELISSA is one of only three ships of her kind in the world to still actively sail and welcomes over 40,000 visitors annually. She also serves as the Official Tall Ship of Texas, a National Historic Landmark and a symbol of the Gulf Coast’s historic beginnings as a seaport and active waterfront.
