22nd Annual Lost Mariners Remembrance

November 10 2021 | 6:00pm to 8:00pm

The annual Lost Mariners Remembrance returns to an in-person format for our 22nd consecutive year of honoring mariners lost on the Great Lakes. On the anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald, a lantern vigil at the Fitzgerald anchor will begin the night, followed by the live Honor Guard escort of a memorial wreath to the Detroit River for receipt by an Honor Flotilla of Great Lakes vessels. A performance by Lee Murdock, Great Lakes balladeer, will follow the wreath ceremony.

In this year's historical presentation, Detroit Historical Society curator emeritus Joel Stone will give remarks recognizing the many vessels and crew impacted by tragic storms in the year 1871.

Unable to join us in-person? Watch a livestream of the event on the Dossin Great Lakes Museum facebook page.
