A Northwest Tradition for over 70 years

The Annual Christmas Ship™ Festival is a PNW tradition providing 1.5 hour sailings on the Spirit of Seattle where friends and family can enjoy a fully decorated boat, sing along with the onboard choir, and hangout with Santa! As we cruise toward a waterfront park, enjoy festive drinks, join in on the Ho Ho Ho contest, and get into the holiday spirit. A portion of ticket sales goes to The Seattle Times, Fund For Those In Need.

The holiday parade of the season

As is tradition on Parade of Boats night, brightly decorated boats will convene in Lake Union and begin their promenade westward through the Fremont Cut. Catch the shimmery lights from aboard the Christmas Ship™, join the parade on your own decorated vessel, or gather at the official onshore viewing party at Evanston Plaza for panoramic views of the flotilla. It’s a holiday event that cannot be missed!

8th Annual Parade of Boats
Date: Friday, December 8th
Time: 8:00 – 9:30 pm
Performance Location: rolling show through the Fremont Cut & Evanston Plaza
Performance Time: 8:20 – 9:10 pm

Announcing a new Christmas Pop-Up Bar on Stone Way!

Heavy Restaurant Group will be opening Santa’s Detour as “The best Christmas bar inside a construction zone!” Party goers enter Santa’s Detour through Fiasco and will be immersed in a decked out gold and red wonderland. The pop up bar will be serving up tiki drinks, mulled wine, classic martinis and more. A small menu of nostalgic snacks include cheese fondue, Swedish meatball sliders, smoked clam dip… and is it even a party if there isn’t Chex mix? Even though they’re playing heavily on the realities of being in a construction zone, the pop up is still easily accessible with ample parking available in their parking garage at 3400 Stone Way.

Santa’s Detour will be open from November 24th through the New Year and will be walk-in only. Large groups can make a reservation by contacting [email protected] or calling Fiasco at 206-737-8743.
