Tacoma Maritime Fest


Location: Foss Waterway Seaport, 705 Dock St, Tacoma 98402

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 & industry that shape it now.

Celebrating the City of Destiny's 46 miles of waterfront and rich history, Maritime Fest brings together an array of waterfront organizations: Industrial, environmental, recreational, and nonprofit. Tacoma Maritime Fest 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.

Admission to the Maritime Fest and the Foss Waterway Seaport is FREE thanks to support

Limited free parking is available along Dock Street. We highly encourage visitors to look at using public transit options, riding a bike, or even walking down to Dock Street from the Downtown Core via the 11th Street/Murray Morgan Bridge. A water shuttle will run between the Museum of Glass and the Foss Waterway Seaport. The distance between the Museum of Glass and the Foss Waterway Seaport is 1 mile with large portions walkable via the Thea Foss Waterway Esplanade.
