41 Years of Tugboats and Maritime Heritage celebrated on the beautiful Olympia, Washington waterfront!

Ahoy! Welcome to Olympia Harbor Days! If you are a tugboat enthusiast, a history buff, an arts & crafts lover, or simply someone in search of lots of fun, mark your calendar for August 29th- August 31st, Fri. 5pm-8pm, Sat. 10am-7pm, Sun. 10am-6pm Labor Day weekend. Harbor Days is an annual festival where tugboats return to the southernmost tip of Puget Sound for three days of entertainment, food, art, history, and a last farewell to the summer. Vintage, working and retired tugboats are moored at Olympia’s Percival Landing. Many of them are open for tour on Saturday of the festival. Be on hand Sunday at noon as the tugs leave shore to participate in the Annual Harbor Days Tugboat Races in the deep channel of the bay. Come join us for 41 years of Tugboats, over 200 arts and crafts booths, entertainment, food, and a special kids area, as Maritime Heritage is celebrated on the beautiful Olympia, Washington waterfront!

COME PREPARED TO SEE HISTORY IN THE MAKING! Percival Landing’s Phase 1 is complete and the city is continuing to upgrade; new viewing scopes, new Oyster dedication… more to come! Percival Landing project information on the City’s website.

Hope you can join us and experience the South Sound’s classiest event…with a little something for everyone in the family! Come with a sense of adventure, and watch us grow!
