Bellingham SeaFeast is an annual two-day festival on the second weekend of October. Our mission is to celebrate our:

Maritime culture & heritage

Thriving working waterfront

Enjoyment & conservation of our water resources

Commercial fishing & seafood industries

Culinary bounty of our corner of the Pacific Northwest

You will leave with a lasting impression and insider knowledge of our little corner of the Pacific Northwest.

An increasing interest in our maritime and fishing sector—and its significant economic impact—led to the creation of SeaFeast. Originally founded on a three-year seed grant from the City of Bellingham Tourism Commission (travel and tourism tax allotments), this signature festival on Bellingham Bay launched in 2016.

Now, SeaFeast is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit, supported both by public and private entities throughout Whatcom County and the Pacific Northwest. The City and Port of Bellingham continue their exciting collaboration to redevelop and to intentionally connect downtown with our thriving working waterfront.

The Bellingham/Whatcom County region has three legacy industries at its roots: Agriculture, Forestry and Wood, and Commercial Fishing/Maritime Trades. Bellingham SeaFeast showcases the maritime sector and its booming economic impact locally, regionally, and internationally.

The festival operates through a dedicated Board of Directors, a small staff, and scores of committed volunteers. Additionally, planners have collaborated with stakeholders throughout Whatcom County to support that vision with this festival.

We look forward to welcoming you to the shores of Bellingham Bay during the second weekend in October. Take a cruise around our website, and feel free to email with any questions.
