2014 Argosy Christmas Ship Festival

The Argosy Christmas Ship festival
is a holiday celebration that has 
been a Northwest tradition for over
60 years. From the flotilla of ships to
the crowds of people who gather 
onshore, this celebration is one of 
the gems of the holiday season.

From the end of November through
December 23rd the Argosy Christmas Ship sails to different Puget Sound waterfront communities, over 45 in total.

Boaters are welcome to add lights to their vessel and join in the festival to help form the largest holiday floating parade in the world! Click here for more information including the 2014 cruise schedule.

  • Blackberry Festival         Bremerton Marina           September 5th - 7th, 2015
