The Seaport Maritime Weekend  features family friendly activities for all to enjoy including live music, food trucks, beer garden, vendors, boats, kids activities, and more! Admission to the festival and the Seaport museum is FREE, as are most of the activities.

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. It is the only community event that celebrates Tacoma’s most important asset: its waterfront.
