Come to the famous Tractor Tavern to enjoy great music, food and drink, and fun activities to support Northwest Seaport, a local non-profit preserving Seattle’s largest and most historic museum ships.
Bands For Boats at the Tractor, held in November, features live music, hors d'oevres, games, raffle prizes, a silent auction, and more. Tickets are $30 and include admission, a free NWS tote bag, and two free tickets for our featured beer and wine. Proceeds from the event benefit Northwest Seaport, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit.
Since 1964, Northwest Seaport has striven to preserve and interpret our region’s largest surviving historic ships to serve as education platforms for our community to teach regional history, the physical sciences, marine trades, creativity, innovation, and community service.
Northwest Seaport’s historic fleet consisting of the wooden tugboat Arthur Foss (1889), Lightship 83 Swiftsure (1904), and the halibut fishing schooner Tordenskjold (1911) are permanently docked at Lake Union Park’s Historic Ships Wharf.
