Classic Workboat Show 2013
October 5 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm| FREE
2014: “First Saturday in October”
Workboats wrapped Lake Union Park and created an authentic maritime and marine experience, and the show will become a Seattle signature event each autumn.
As staff recover (need to be honest here), we’ll update with pages with images and reflections…and plans for 2014 (NWS’s 50th Anniversary)

October 5, 2013

Lake Union Park, Seattle
Come aboard and explore working, historic tugboats, fishboats and workboats. Enjoy an exciting family-oriented day with maritime and marine professionals, demonstrations, and fun, food and drink.
The Northwest Seaport Classic Workboat Show is an exciting gathering of local Northwest workboats joining the Seaport’s floating fleet at Lake Union Park.
Visitors will be able to board select vessels, meet crew members, and feel the vibrations of idling marine engines during startups. Workboats may feature rare restored Atlas-Imperial or Washington Iron Works diesel engines, including Northwest Seaport’s own tugboat Arthur Foss, a National Historic Landmark.
