Event Hosts make Trails & Sails possible! They are small businesses, site stewards, advocates, volunteers, and passionate partners throughout Essex County that want to connect people with the many assets of this region. Do you have a historic site you want to show off? Or a special local industry you want to share with people? Contact us to learn more about opportunities to participate in 2024.

Host Guidelines

  • Trails & Sails is a free event series, so all activities offered as a part of Trails & Sails must be free.
  • We understand that due to capacity limitations, some events may require participants to pre-register. Event Hosts are responsible for managing this and must provide a registration link or instructions for inclusion in the guide and on the Trails & Sails website.
  • After the series, we require that Event Hosts complete a very brief survey asking for event attendance numbers, number of volunteers, and an estimate of dedicated time.
  • We recommend reviewing this list of 10 Tips and Tricks for Hosting a Great Trails & Sails Event to learn more about what to expect.
