The Tugboat Roundup is a gathering of tugboats and other vessels and a celebration of New York’s maritime industry.
The Tugboat Roundup typically features about thirty tugs and other vessels including working tugs, historic tugs, mini-tugs, and barges.
The Tugboat Roundup takes place along a quarter mile of the Erie Canal and at Lock E2 Park. The address of the festival will take you to the Hurst Harbor Center (formerly the Waterford Visitor Center) at the heart of the festival. However, parking is very limited in this area. Satellite parking lots and shuttles are available. You will see signs for the parking lots when you arrive in Waterford. If you choose to find a parking spot closer to the festival, please be respectful of homes and driveways.
