Come for the Anacortes Waterfront Festival, Stay for the Fun

Spend a spectacular sun filled weekend at the Swinomish Casino & Lodge.

The 2015 Anacortes Waterfront Festival  is a jam-packed, fun filled weekend held on Saturday and Sunday, June 6 – 7, 2015 along the beautiful waterfront in Anacortes, Washington.

Come kick off the weekend with the Waterfront Festival Dinner on Friday, June 5, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. The annual waterfront festival dinner celebrates the start of the Anacortes Waterfront Festival with presentations exhibited by local talent.

Cruise the waters around Anacortes in a free boat ride courtesy of the Anacortes Yacht Club. The first boats will leave at 10:00 a.m. Saturday and Sunday with signups beginning at 9:45 a.m. at the gazebo by the Anacortes Marina office.

Don’t miss the Quick and Dirty Boat Building event which will be held on Saturday, June 6. The boat building event is now in its 8th year and has become one of the major highlights of the festival.

Bring the kids and have a blast at the model boat show and the Channel of Discovery, offering educational displays to learn about boats and the local waterfront. Watch the Blackjack Squadron formation flyover in honor of D-Day and the festival’s 26th Anniversary at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday.

Enjoy an eclectic mix of entertainment with homegrown talent and acts from across the Pacific Northwest while enjoying the All Corvette Car Show, the Custom Class Car Show and the Boat Show. Not into cars or boats? Then head on over and showcase your creativity by making your own art masterpiece to display in the Quick and Dirty Parade at the Anacortes Arts Festival on Saturday.

Come down to the Depot Plaza on Saturday, June 6 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and enjoy an all age dance under the stars. The Plaza Dance (aka the Fishermen’s Dance) is a timeworn tradition dating back to the 1930’s when big band concerts played to welcome the salmon fishing fleet on summer weekends.

Make a full weekend of the festival by making reservations at the Swinomish Casino & Lodge. Share and indulge in all Skagit Valley has to offer this special time of year!


The Anacortes Waterfront Festival will be held on the grounds of the beautiful Cap Sante Boat Haven at 1019 Q Avenue in Anacortes, Washington.
