The 2021 27th Seaport Maritime Weekend on August 28th and 29th (10a-4p) will celebrate Tacoma’s historic waterfront. Join us at this all-ages event and be part of this valued maritime tradition that honors Tacoma’s rich maritime history, the trades that defined its past, and the activities and industry that shape it now.

Celebrating the City of Destiny’s 46 miles of waterfront and rich history, Seaport Maritime Weekend brings together an array of waterfront organizations: industrial, environmental, recreational, and nonprofit. This festival is a tradition that nearly a quarter-million people have enjoyed during the past two decades.
