Schooner Fame Events


Join the crew of Fame this Friday, August 22, at 6 PM for an evening sail with the Jolly Rogues!

The Jolly Rogues are an “auditory flashback” to
the music of the 18th and 19th centuries. They go from one great sea shanty to another, with tunes that makes you sway and join in the singing. Members of The Guild of Historic Interpreters, they present a great selection of seafaring songs, all of which are light-hearted and pleasant. Join us for a wonderful evening of good-mood music!

Regular ticket prices apply for this special sunset cruise. Beer, wine and grog available!


On Wednesday, September 10th the Fame and Salem Maritime National Historic Site will be co-hosting a lecture by David Hodgdon, who has written a book about the adventures of his ancestor, whose Salem schooner was captured by the British during the War of 1812.

These lectures, sponsored jointly by
Fame and Friendship, take place at 7 PM at St. Joseph Hall, 160 Derby St., Salem. They are free, and the Hall is handicapped accessible. For more information, call 978-729-7600 or 978-740-1660.
