Having the tall ships come to Kenosha is a gift to all of us.  They bring educational opportunities, economic impact from our visitors and a greater appreciation for our downtown.  We hope you will consider volunteering to help with ship tours, visitor information, the Pepsi Children’s Village, the Kenosha Community Sailing and Yacht Club Sailaway Village and more.
