About Downrigging

A Festival with a Cause

What do you get when you combine the largest annual gathering of Tall Ships in North America, a top-notch Bluegrass festival, and one of the coolest small towns in America? The Sultana Education Foundation’s Downrigging Weekend. Featuring three days of music, sailing, ship tours, lectures, exhibits, and family activities, there is no festival like it anywhere. And the best part . . . all proceeds from festival benefit the Foundation’s environmental literacy programs and the other educational nonprofits participating in the festival.
