Check back for 2017 details

Downtown Bellingham came alive on Friday night to jump-start Bellingham SeaFeast 2016 with salty music, storytelling, poetry readings, and sea chanteys (join in a sing-a-long). We anticipate a repeat of the fun and folly Sept. 22 this year.

Fishers from near and far, accustomed to mending and hauling nets, instead showed up to pluck guitar strings and and to entertain with original poems, stories, and songs. They induced smiles and laughter over local ales (brewed right in the setting at Boundary Bay). 

TUCKED INTO a downtown alleyway at Honey Moon, the Bellingham Good Time Girls and vocalist Sarah Goodin will welcomed led crowds in rounds of maritime music. 

THE FISHER POETS also staged writing workshops Friday morning, and held a workshop at the Squalicum Harbor site of Bellingham SeaFeast on Saturday.
