The East End Seaport Museum and Marine Foundation is holding their annual Maritime Festival Friday September 19, through Sunday, September 21, 2014. The three-day seaside festival is being held in support of the restoration of the Long Beach Bar "BUG" Lighthouse as well as ongoing educational programs.

During the weekend, attendees can commemorate Greenport's maritime history while enjoying a variety of activities, events, and demonstrations throughout the Village.

The festivities will debut on Friday during "A Land and Sea Greenport Gala" from 6 to 9 p.m. at Claudio's (111 Main Street, Greenport). The soiree will pay tribute to the historic village and seafaring community, while celebrating the East End Seaport Museum and Marine Foundation and guest of honor Otto Schoenstein, one of the amazing craftsmen who is responsible for the rebuilding of Long Beach Bar "Bug" Lighthouse.

"A Land and Sea Greenport Gala" will showcase local cuisine from 25 East End restaurants, 6 wineries, 3 spirit sponsors, and 1 craft brew company. The evening will also include unique entertainment, extravagant auction items, and locally designed memorabilia commemorating the Maritime Festival's Silver Anniversary. The celebrations continue after the gala during the "official" after party at The Blue Canoe (104 3rd Street, Greenport), which will feature live music by The HooDoo Loungers.

Advanced tickets to "A Land and Sea Greenport Gala" are $75 or $65 for Museum members. Tickets will be available at the door for $100.
