The Anacortes Waterfront Festival showcases the best of waterfront activities. On Saturday, Quick and Dirty Boat Building teams build boats all day (click here for sign up sheet) and then test their floatability. Take a free boat ride – both days! – with the Anacortes Yacht Club by registering at the gazebo by the marina’s main office between 10am and 3:30pm.

Hands-on children’s activities include building wooden sail boats with Fidalgo Island Rotary, games, and more. Channel of Discovery displays range from model boats, to learning about our waterfront environment and forest land wildlife. A great variety of food vendors offer everything from pulled pork sandwiches, cotton candy and hotdogs, to Gyros, Mexican tamales and more! Relax in the beer garden with live music and sea shanties.

Festival hours: Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
