When: Event has passed. Watch this page for updates.

The Tugboat Roundup is a three-day festival that begins with a tug parade up the Hudson River. On September 9, at approximately 3:30pm, the parade will leave Albany. Spectators can watch the parade pass by from any accessible river front spot in Menands, Watervliet, Green Island, Troy, and Cohoes.

Once the parade reaches Waterford, tugboats, workboats and other vessels dock where they, their crews, tug enthusiasts, and visitors gather to celebrate the maritime heritage of the Northeast Inland Waterways.

The festival features tugboat tours, boat rides, tug talks, competitions, fireworks, children's activities, vendors, food, and more. The Tugboat Roundup is free to attend.
