Join us for the 10th Annual Classic Workboat & Maritime Show! May 20-21, 2023
Get ready to embark on an epic adventure and discover the rich history of tugboats, fishboats, and other classic workboats! This year, we celebrate 10 years of hosting this wonderful community event and it's going to be the best one yet!
Northwest Seaport is the museum of our region's workboats. Every year we gather a group of visiting tugboats, fishing boats, and emergency response vessels for you to see, step aboard, and experience. Some are retired classics and others are still on the job, moving cargo, keeping our waterways safe, or bringing home the catch.
Our vessel The Tordenskjold, featured in Wooden Boat Magazine, is a working boat finding a new life after 100 years spent fishing the northwest seas. This vessel and many others will be on site and open to the public for viewing!
Join us for an unforgettable weekend filled with maritime experts, thrilling and incredibly lucrative career opportunities, and exciting educational experiences. Each day, the event runs from 10:00a to 5:00p with an entire schedule packed full of attractions - ALL FOR FREE to the public!
That's not all - There's tons of fun activities for the whole family, delicious food, a shipboard beer garden, and so much more!
And the best part? It's all happening at the Historic Ship's Wharf, nestled right in the heart of Seattle at the breathtaking Lake Union Park. Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to explore and celebrate Seattle's vibrant maritime culture!
