TACOMA, WA -- The only festival that celebrates Tacoma’s working waterfront will return to the Foss Waterway in September.
Maritime Fest, now in its 22nd year, will be held Sept. 20-21 at Thea’s Park and the Foss Waterway Seaport at 705 Dock Street. In addition to highlighting the contributions the working waterfront has made to Tacoma, the festival will focus on Puget Sound recreational watercraft and marine education.
Maritime Fest is a free community event for people of all ages. In addition to the popular toy boat building and remote control boats, the festival will include a range of boat displays from tug boats to tall ships, a beer garden, musical entertainment, sailboat rides and an entertainment stage just for kids.
