Your sponsorship directs the course of history ...

Your sponsorship of Thames River Heritage Park’s 2023 Summer Season helps to:

  • Connect over 14,000 local residents and tourists and enhance public access to heritage and historic sites, parks, and events on both sides the Thames including the Submarine Force Library and Museum and soon the new National U.S. Coast Guard Museum.
  • Support educational programming with local schools and summer camps and 80+ narrated historic boat tours along with weekend harbor cruises, Sailfest fireworks cruise, and happy hour celebrity cruises.
  • Promote tourism and economic development through a collaborative marketing campaign, “Discover the Thames” – 8-weeks of digital billboard exposure on I-95, social media campaign targeting the tri-state NY area, Hartford and Springfield, visitor map / guide – that promotes heritage sites and summer events on the Thames such as CT Open House Day, Sailfest and CT Maritime Heritage Festival.
  • Sustain the heritage sites through collaborative, capacity-building history and cultural projects like the new Docent Academy and Lecture Series.
