Ships on the sea during the JadeWeserCup

Maritime festivals

Weekend at the Jade

From 30. June 2016 to 02. July 2016, similar to the first weekend of July every year, the whole of Wilhelmshaven is out and about celebrating its big city and port festival with visitors from near and far. The festival is one of the biggest of its kind in North Germany and invites guests to take part in many spectacular sailing experiences. The port festival offers something for young and old with many events and highlights on water and land and the whole area around the Große Hafen is transformed into a huge outdoor festival site. Culinary delicacies as well as musical entertainment with around 80 music groups on several open air stages and party tents complete the programme.

JadeWeserPort CUP

From 01. October 2016 to 03. October 2016 it’s “cast off” time again for sailing in the JadeWeserPort CUP.

This year, the exciting regatta on the Jade with a colourful programme on land is being held for the 15th time. The only traditional sailing boat regatta by the North Sea brings the big sailing boats past the JadeWeserPort. The parade of the boats entering the port in the afternoon is an absolute highlight and makes for many great photos! The entertainment programme ranges from live music, port tours and “open house” ship to a colourful kids programme. One thing is certain: every day promises to be colourful and full of maritime atmosphere!
