Christmas Ship Celebration Dec 8

Christmas ship at Saltwater Park 2013

The Christmas Ship festival is a holiday celebration that has been a Pacific Northwest tradition since 1949. Every year, the Argosy Christmas Ship sails to different Puget Sound waterfront communities, over 45 in total. From the flotilla of boats to the crowds of people who gather onshore, this festival is one of the gems of the Northwest.

The Christmas Ship Celebration at the Richmond Beach Saltwater Park (2021 NW 190th Street) is scheduled for Tuesday, December 8. The evening begins at 7:30pm with music from Sweet Adelines who sing barbershop-style arrangements of songs old and new.

The Christmas Ship, followed by a fleet of Argosy vessels, private yachts, sailboats and other small crafts decked out with holiday lights, will arrive off the Saltwater Park at 8:20pm for a 20-minute performance by the Dickens Carolers. Gather around a roaring bonfire while joyous voices from the choir onboard the ship serenade beach guests. Complimentary cookies will be served and Richmond Beach swag will be available for purchase at the RBCA booth on the beach.

This event is free to attend and jointly sponsored by the City of Shoreline and Richmond Beach Community Association. More information here.
