The Mayflower II is a national treasure like the Statue of Liberty.  

Mayflower II entering New York Harbor on July 1, 1957.

It has deep meaning to most Americans because it speaks to our collective history as immigrants. Today more than 30 million Americans can trace their roots to the 1620 voyage.

Mayflower will be the 3rd float in the 2020 Rose Parade on January 1, 2020. It is the topic of a new best selling book The Wicked Pilgrim by Randal Charlton.

The dramatic true story behind the building of Mayflower II

In 2020 the 400th Anniversary of that passage will be celebrated in Boston, Plymouth, Provincetown, Pasadena, England, the Netherlands, and elsewhere.

Mayflower 400th Anniversary events are organized by various groups that have a common focus:  the ship  Mayflower

Starting Labor Day Weekend 2019 and throughout 2020, she will be on tour to perform and meet her fans. Her performances will include inviting people to come aboard and explore her small but mighty frame and design. She will sail into Boston Harbor with the USS Constitution, and then they will dock together. She will tell the story of the Mayflower Compact in Provincetown. Her Official Launch was September 7, 2019, at Mystic Seaport, which she will call home during the winter. And she will return to Plymouth and Plimoth over Memorial Day Weekend 2020 for a spectacular homecoming.

New Year’s Day 2020 the ship Mayflower will kick-off her 400th Anniversary by floating down Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena, California, in America’s most iconic New Year’s Day Parade – the Rose®  Parade.

Admission to most events will be FREE.
