More than 500 people are expected to attend Bellingham SeaFeast 2021 in Bellingham, Wash. on Oct. 30, an outdoor event spotlighting the region’s waterfront and maritime sector.

This year’s theme is “Feast of our Seas.” Attendees will be able to check out the new 9,000-square-foot Fishermen’s Pavilion, stroll the spooky Harvest Harbor Walk, meet local fishermen, learn about marine resources, eat seafood and buy from area fishing families at Bellingham Dockside Market. Guests are encouraged to wear a family-friendly costume and go trick-or-treating at various vendors on the Harbor Waterfront Trail.

The Pavilion will feature performances from local musicians Timothy Lambert, Marcia Guderian, and Celestial Navigation and Lummi Nation Black Hawk Dancers.

COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place at the event, which requires all guests over the age of five to wear masks, regardless of vaccination status. There will also be hand sanitizer stations, social distancing and frequent surface cleaning.

The event takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Squalicum Harbor and Boathouse Parking Lot, with the grand opening of Fishermen’s Pavilion scheduled for 12:30 to 12:50 p.m. during the event.
